Um, no. I prefer not to blind oncoming traffic and to do it right. http://forums.swedespeed.com/showthread.php?147208guess you like your lights the way they are, not me.
LOL.guess you like your lights the way they are, not me.
In his defense, mountain bikes are hard to get up onto the roof of a car. They are significantly heavier than road bikes. Based on the wide track I assume he's riding mountain bikes so that explains the very outward positioning.I don't know what to say about this picture that disturbs me most; the leds in the grille, the big ass eyeball or the funny bike rack locations.
I completely understand, and normally it won't bother me so much. Just the whole combination made it look really really awkward as I have mentioned.In his defense, mountain bikes are hard to get up onto the roof of a car.

s3w2s1 - Are the LED's a high beam only kind of thing?
I was hoping to do something like this, but more stealthy. I'd prefer not to see them when they are off and definitely don't want to remove/cover the 'R' symbol. How did you mount them? Do you think it would be possible to mount them on the inside of the grill? I already have the Volvo Aux Light kit so I have the wiring and switch already installed; just need a decent set of lights and a plan on where to mount them. The Aux Light kit comes with mounting hardware for the front bumper, but that is NOT going to happen. LOL.2600 lumens fixed the problem.

Did you go with the spot or flood pattern?wow you guys are fun. I have done many modifications to this R as it is my third one so here are the reasons and process on the lights and other things. first the racks. in order to hold four racks (painted sonic blue) on the car two have to be facing rear and two front, two come off in the winter for ski racks I like to mount my normally used bikes rear facing so that I do not have bugs all over the front of them (or one of the reasons I drive a V (put them inside))
the lights, my last R I ran 55W HIDs in both low and high beam (2000 V70 R) but this new car had a stupid arrangement for lighting so I have been stuck with careful driving at night at any speed. We are buying a new truck and will be mounting some large lights on it so I decided to try out some LEDs on the volvo as a test. We put them up in the grill because the need to be high for a driving light, I had already tried HIDs in the fog lights and they did nothing, the eurospec was not worth the money as I like to put that money into HP. The grill was a perfect place as the horns are already blocking some of the wind to the coolers so we mounted them right infront of the horns. the look may be different but they are incredible bright. I have them as an accessory light with manual switching right now, very bright and instant on.
I'm surprised that they won't fit behind the grill; they are less than 4 inches deep. Is it the horns that get in the way? And are you running these lights with the standard 12 V? Or did you have to do some funky electrical work to power them properly?they are driving beam and the depth of the light with cooling fins did not allow for mounting behind the grill. the DRL position would have taken too much effort and with a 127K miles on it already I did not care so much. kind of like the industrial look and the shop that put them in did a great job. I would rather put the money into a larger turbo down the line.
Thanks. So simply connecting to the aux lighting power source should be fine then. I've never had my fromt bumper off but I had just assumed that there would be a bit of room in there. By "coolers" do you simply mean the fins on the back of the main casing or is there another piece that is not shown on their website? I so want to do this, I've been looking for a set of decent lights to mount as my aux lights for awhile now and these seem to fit the bill perfectly.they are about 3.5 deep, not enough room with the coolers to mount behind the grill and they only draw 1.9a @ 28w. you can barely see the HIDs when these are on, and they are so white they make the HIDs look yellow
