Nice. I need a spot like that. People keep hitting my cars at work.

I was surprised I got it. There is usually has a brown Pilot there. It's the space behind the building sign on the roof of the Honda dealer I work at.

I'm sort of sad they discontinued the c70. I get that the sales numbers weren't there. But it does make our cars look less aged when there's no new model to compare to.

It's still a beautiful car. They really nailed the proportions. Every other convertible I look at just seems off in one way or another.

Must agree. Sometimes i think that pre-facelift looks better than facelift, especially the rear end

To me always the pre-facelift will look better than facelift. Including C30, S40 & V50.

For me 2007 is the golden year for the S40/V50 (Factory installed aux input, bigger wing mirrors and updated light dome console. Not even the upgraded T5 and the polestar tune availability outweighs the facelift design to me.

And the for C30 and C70, 2010 is the best year.
Good thing they upgraded a lot of stuff before messing with the exterior.

The only thing I hate of mine is the small wing mirrors (like the 04.5 ->06 S40/V50). I want swap those at some point.

Facelifts look like they were modernized by a KIA or Hyundai designer.

Facelift owners: Sorry, no offense intended. It’s just my opinion.

One pipe dream I have had was to install the post facelift rear on mine and the pre facelift C30 R Design front end and side skirts. Pair that with the Heico rear diffuser and a nice lip spoiler in the back... oh, that would look sweet. Not sure how much would have to change for the C30 body parts though, I am guessing everything ahead of the doors is slightly different except the hood.

I liked the pre-face-lift C70 the same way I liked the XC70 up until 2008. BUT, I have come to appreciate the details of the latest models and am pretty happy with our '13 C70 :)

I’ve seen a c70 pre-facelift with facelift front end. I believe everything has to be changed.
Somehow im not sure which front end looks better. Also been trying to figure out what to do with mine pre-facelift, i want to make it a bit more agressive, just not sure how. By plastic welding from other it may look like something from nfs underground

I did fall in love with the facelift taillights after following one around sunset a couple of years ago, enough to start wondering if they’d be plug and play on a pre-facelift... totally lost interest when I found our how much they cost.
