Beaty. The color is very nice. You're in need for '05 headlights though <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (S60 t5er)

What antenna is that? Looks like a sat radio antenna. Is it painted cosmic blue like your exterior?

Re: S60 Pics (myVolvoS60T5)

For a cheap really nice look I'd tint the windows limo black. Add a Bodykit or start with parts of a body kit. It will be like a new car once you do <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"><p>I really like the color, the grill is sweet... (Heico or iPD??) and the antenna is cool... kinda like a BMW antenna.

Re: S60 Pics (SuperSwede)

Yep, that color is screaming for tinted windows. Maybe not quite limo black, since IMO it's better not to have the side windows too different.

Re: (S60 t5er)

Grille: The grille I bought from someone in the UK. It is a mesh plastic grille... it is very worth the money. I just customized the grille with the VOLVO logo, here: <p><IMG SRC="http://myspace-892.vo.llnwd.net/00633/29/80/633980892_l.jpg" BORDER="0"><p> <IMG SRC="http://myspace-713.vo.llnwd.net/00633/31/76/633976713_l.jpg" BORDER="0"> <p>I also put on some custom eyebrows, which I think makes it look much better. I like the aggressive look. They are also painted the body color, Cosmos Blue, Code: 450.<p>Antenna: The antenna is for GPS and XM. and yes... it is colored the body color: Cosmos Blue, Code: 450<p>Callipers: These are my new Volvo Calipers. They are a nice red gloss with the Volvo logo on them.<p> <IMG SRC="http://myspace-304.vo.llnwd.net/00615/40/38/615958304_l.jpg" BORDER="0"> <p>Now, here comes the really neat part of my car... I say that neat things come in small packages.... Can you guess what difference you see? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0"> <p><IMG SRC="http://myspace-452.vo.llnwd.net/00633/25/43/633973452_l.jpg" BORDER="0"> <p><br><i>Modified by myVolvoS60T5 at 6:34 PM 4-6-2006</i><BR><BR>

Re: (myVolvoS60T5)

Did you get a body shop to custom paint the GPS/XM antenna? That's a great idea. I assume it doesn't affect the reception or "stickiness" of the magnet. If not, I'm gonna get mine done in nautic blue metallic.

Do you have XM or are you using this antenna to receive sirius. I soooo do not want the ugy black one on my R that Volvo provides. It's immense.

Re: (Cementups)

I have a small xm black magnet on the front center roof. I want to know if it can be painted without affecting the sound quality or magnetic properties.

Re: (myVolvoS60T5)

notice my eyebrows.... this is for the person who wanted to know if the borws would interfere with the wipers.... BTW I did the painting MYSELF, body shop asked for $120 ($60 for each brow) I got the paint for $15 from the dealer
