Cullen is a great guy from Estonia who's also a regular on VWvortex. He's made an interesting side business for himself selling OEM European parts. <P>In a couple of days, Cullen and his family are moving to the USA where he'll be working for a North American VW tuner. However, he tells me he's going to be importing parts once he's here.<P>BTW Cullen, I'm curious what a set of the 1986-1993 240 headlights will run.

Oh, on that S60. It's prett interesting. 18-inch wheels, body kit, silver with S60 challenge logo on it. I wonder if it's a special edition that some dealer put out.

You and me both. By the time I sold mine though, it had the brushed silver badges "Corrado" and "SLC" on the rear and a rectangular "VR6" badge from a Golf Highline on the front. I also did the upgraded foglights. Never got to doing ecodes though. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif">

Cullen,<P>Great pictures, & enjoy your posts on Vortex. That S60 looks tight, for sure. The MS-Design kit looks great with silver. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P>-Drew

The other ones I saw at other sites w/ MS Design kit but no color matching trim really didn't grow on me that well.<BR>

Yannis, I KNEW you'd bite! Hey, do you know what? Volvo <I>owes</I> you. You are the patron saint of all NON-silver colors. You are their <I>cheerleader</I> and their CHAMPION! When folks come here for input on color selection, you sing the praises of every color under the sun in hopes of balancing out the comments. <P>Know what? I think that some of us actually prefer the other (possibly nicer?) colors -- they DO have more personality, that's for sure! We're just too chicken to spend hunks o money on a car in a color that we're afraid we might not like tomorrow or next year. <P>Yup, I'm convinced that if it weren't for your passionate non-silver comments, we'd see nothing but silver Volvos (or at least nothing but pro-silver comments here). <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"> For this, we are grateful, I suppose! Otherwise life would be boring. If EVERYBODY drove a silver one, how exciting would THAT be? Not very... <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P>But back to the point here...that car above looks AWESOME. And yes, the painted side-skirts are nice touch. I mean, if you're gonna go the extra mile and put the kit on it, why not do it right and add ALL the nice finishing touches, like giving it that clean look (by having the color-matched side skirt thing)?!<P>Lastly, I wish our plates were long & thin like that. The chunky/boxy size of our US plates doesn't help the side-to-side "flow" on the rear end. Look how nice that looks above! Ahhh...the nice, clean, horizontal lines...

Hmmm... VERY interesting, the whole color bit. Me? Pompous? I don't THINK so. I'll ponder the thought as I drive home with my nose high in the air listening to an opera ...now that I know I have a sense of style and that I'm pompous! <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P>The long-n-thin comment (yeah, okay, in hindsight I guess I set myself up for that! <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif">) reminds me of a comedian's joke about the size of the engine/car you buy. He said he'd heard of a study showing that men with "less under the belt" tended to drive higher-powered vehicles to compensate for it, like say, a Porsche. The smaller the, uh, "goods", the nicer/larger the car that man tends to drive, due to feelings of inadequacy. Then he wondered aloud "It just begs the question, doesn't it...what about a guy who drives a Mini?" (I don't re-tell jokes very well, as you can see.) <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P>Anyway, now that it's been established that I have a sense of style and I'm pompous, I'll share this mornings musings with you all. I took a look at my car as I approached it this morning, and even though it's filthy, it's still one heckuva good-lookin' machine. As I pondered it's style, poise, and beauty, IT HIT ME! <B>My S60 is ESS-<I>SEXY!!!</I></B> I never noticed the hips on it. Look at it. It's got hips, and nice curvy ones at that! (I like how I find new things that I love about my car every once in a while, even though it's now almost 5 months old!)
