IDk what it is about his picture but I am in love. The lengthened headlights and the side profile of the car appear to be in a perfect proportional match.

I would love to perform this type of facelift although i have no idea what it would cost and if its worth it on a 6000$ car with 150k miles.

That's a C30 facelift front end. Love it! (Maybe the reason why I have one) :)

That's gorgeous. Amazing that a design that's now a dozen years old holds up so well. Love the black roof framed by the door frames.

Looks like an aftermarket carbon fiber hood. That V50 sure has some great lines. Great contrast in color as well.

Can you just bolt on the C30 front end, head lights and bumper?

NO, If I recall correctly from the build thread he had to cut and replace a buch of the front end including the crash brace and light brackets. I cant recall where I saw the build thread though. There were other little things he did besides just the lights bumper and fenders though. I think he even made a custom rear bumper.

Yeah, I actually like the work on the rear end more than the front, s/v60 r-d spoiler by the looks of it, here's a few more pics; http://forums.swedespeed.com/showth...RIGHT-NOW!-!&p=2494935&viewfull=1#post2494935
and like quadcamsix said, there is a build thread from a euro website linked somewhere on here, not sure where though...

Oh, there's that beauty again. Swedish guy (go Sweden!) who's been rebuilding cars for a couple of years now.
Got to see it in person last summer, the paint is ridiculous. :D Well, the whole car is, lol.

S40 R-by-design: The hood are made of V50+V70II combined IIRC.
A lot more info in the links above.

No parts on this were truly plug and play. Headlights are different, so custom fenders.
Plus the biggest thing that people fail to notice, the C30 has outlining trim all the way around the car. This was all filled in so that there are smooth lines over the whole front end.

The hood wasn't anything fancy, just some custom fabrication. Not really sure I'm sold on the paint scheme to make the hood look longer.
The rear spoiler is a bit overkill on this car as well.
But I love the mirrors! Either way, great build! Just way more work than most of us would put into a 10 year old car...

I think that looks better on the V50 than on the C30! As much as I like the lifted V50 in normal, that looks a lot better! I wonder how a V50 front end on a C30 would look... :)

I want to see S40 with C30 front end. Actually I want to own one but this is out of question.

Man to heck with that guy, I mean God bless him for creating such a masterpiece but I've reached out so many times for at least a bs quote and not even a reply. I don't even want it any more....


Alright maybe just a little.

Does he have an actual website. All i see when looking up is facebook and instagram pages. The kit looks amazing though. Wonder how fit and finish is.
