Anyone purchased or use one of these "Street Scene" grilles?<br>This one looks about the same as the Evolve grille at a fraction of the cost.<br><IMG SRC="http://www.yourhotcar.com/productImages/121944187869389.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><A HREF="http://www.yourhotcar.com/prod/Street_Scene/Grilles/Custom_Fit_Grilles/Street_Scene_Aluminum_Main_Speed_Grille_-_950-77662/582314/" TARGET="_blank">http://www.yourhotcar.com/prod...2314/</A><br><IMG SRC="http://www.yourhotcar.com/productImages_thumbBIG/1234987893326856.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://www.yourhotcar.com/productImages_thumbBIG/123498789305443.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><A HREF="http://www.yourhotcar.com/prod/Option_Racing/Grilles/Custom_Fit_Grilles/Volvo_S60_Option_Racing_Mesh_Grille_-_65-46234/609481/" TARGET="_blank">http://www.yourhotcar.com/prod...9481/</A><p>

Re: Street Scene Grilles (KiotCloudkicker)

The black one looks pretty good. Just have to wonder about the quality/durability of it. Is it for the R though?

Re: Street Scene Grilles (xman03)

I stand corrected... the first one is for the R the last two are for regular S60s. I'm tempted to get the aluminum grille, but I'm afraid of its quality.<BR><BR>

Re: Street Scene Grilles (Oceans60R)

Actually if you click the first link he posted, it is a version for the R, the last link is the regular S60.<p>Here is the R link:<br><A HREF="http://www.yourhotcar.com/prod/Street_Scene/Grilles/Custom_Fit_Grilles/Street_Scene_Aluminum_Main_Speed_Grille_-_950-77662/582314" TARGET="_blank">http://www.yourhotcar.com/prod...82314</A>/<p>At the $137.99 plus $16.99 shipping price, it's not a great deal, but it is Aluminum versus the plastic from IPD, so if that matters to you...<p>Wouldn't be my choice though.

Re: (mjaffe)

The Street Scene Grilles ARE the Evolve grilles. Evolve just powder coats them. Don't ask how I know... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Street Scene Grilles (KiotCloudkicker)

You guys do realize that there's a difference between a "mesh grille" and a "mesh grille insert" right?<p>The one for the R is an <b>insert</b> like the one from Evolve which means that you've got to remove your OE grille, cut out the existing center and "insert" or otherwise attach the grille backing.<p>It is <b>not</b> a simple plug and play replacement for the OE grille.<p>That's why I was suggesting the <A HREF="http://www.ipdusa.com/Volvo-S60/Close-Outs-&-Overstock/S60R-Mesh-Grille-with-Chrome-surround/p-74-780-4791/" TARGET="_blank">ipd mesh grille</A> that is currently for sale for $72!! If you don't like chrome (like me) you can either lightly sand it (a la brushed side mirrors) or paint it (black, silver, or whatever color you like).<p>AND, for $72, if you decide you don't like it, at least you haven't mangled your original grille -- which you could just reinstall!<p>-Eric

Re: Street Scene Grilles (FORD420diesel)

They do offer a valance grille for the lower portion of the bumper:<br><A HREF="http://www.yourhotcar.com/prod/Street_Scene/Grilles/Custom_Fit_Grilles/Street_Scene_Aluminum_Bumper_Valance_Speed_Grille_-_950-77663/582315/" TARGET="_blank">http://www.yourhotcar.com/prod...2315/</A>
