Thanks to Chris for the swedespeed stickers. Sorry about the dirt on the car. I've only had it a week and it's due for its first wash (by hand of course) tomorrow.<p><IMG SRC="http://im1.shutterfly.com/procserv/47b6d822b3127cce8a74241a19e000000016109AZtWrRy3b0" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://im1.shutterfly.com/procserv/47b6d822b3127cce8a74249f985500000016109AZtWrRy3b0" BORDER="0"><p>I also picked up a seat protector for the bottom and back where the car seat sits and a back protector where my kid's feet kick. Still deciding on where to replace this seat with a Recaro.<p><IMG SRC="http://im1.shutterfly.com/procserv/47b6d822b3127cce8a742483984900000016109AZtWrRy3b0" BORDER="0"><p>

Re: Swedespeed stickers on sonic blue S60R (JRL)

looks good. Where did you get the seat back protector? We have one the car seat sits on to save the leather but something to keep the kid from kicking would be nice.

Re: Swedespeed stickers on sonic blue S60R (Quick Brick)

What did you tell me Jim? Is it that you're not supposed to post pics of a car that is not spotless? It's really not that dirty...just had a few raindrops on it the other day. I suppose I should have waited until tomorrow after I washed it to post the pics. I think this is what you're referring to, right?

Re: Swedespeed stickers on sonic blue S60R (JRL)

Oh yea...it was about the car seat hurting a volvo seat....you've never seen one damaged. I still wanted to have something under the car seat to protect it and to give me some piece of mind. Is that it?

I said they DO hurt the seats. <br>Everyone that I've bought that's had child seats has permanent "dents" in the rear seat bottoms.<br>Buy a thick protector. These were not R's they had the much thicker leather

Re: Swedespeed stickers on sonic blue S60R (JRL)

Oh, I misunderstood. Here's your original quote.<p>"I haven't seen a Volvo yet that when a car seat was installed, the car seats had serious permanent depressions in them"<p>I took this to mean that you hadn't seen a volvo (that had a car seat) that sustained permanent damage to the seat.<p>The protector I have is not super thin, but it's not thick. I could stick a towel on top of the protector and under the seat.

Re: Swedespeed stickers on sonic blue S60R (surfsd)

I would like to keep the R kid proof, but I don't see how that will be 100% possible. I do have a wagon as a spare, but the problem is I want to drive the S60R during the week and that's when I sometimes need to drop off/pick up the kid. Then I drive the '98 V70R on the weekend. I could flip that order, but then I wouldn't get to drive the S60R as much and that would defeat the whole purpose.<p>I don't ever want to be in a situation where I've got a car and need to pick up my kid and be stuck without a car seat. <p>I do like the idea of only water in the car. I've already been stressing this with my kid AND wife. She's always got a water bottle with her and that's fine. I think I will institute a no food policy in the new R. The old R can have whatever they want in it, but I still keep that one pretty clean.<p>

I do have two car seats. Same one in each of my cars.
