Re: Very sporty red C70 from Switzerland (BenES)

Not too impressed with the wheels, but the car sure sits very low. Both the front and the back wheels are almost tucked in the fenders. I wonder if the owner has some special suspesension setup or just cut springs.

Actually that'll be about the height I want my coilover to be adjusted to.

Re: Very sporty red C70 from Switzerland ([email protected])

I have the Eyelids and I agree partially.

I don't like them when they are painted the same color as the car but I do
like them painted black to match the body moldings.

They take on a different look when they are painted black.

I wish they were painted black on that red beauty.

I see most, if not all of you, hate the " Lids ". That's cool, I'm often alone.

Well, they were going to ship them out from Germany either last Friday or today.

Waiting for KW NA's confirmation tomorrow, then we'll know more. Luckily the 850 and the 70 series orders going to be using the stainless steel construction.

Worst case scenario, I'll tow the C70 to get the coilover installed.

Drew,

agree 110%! The car looks awesome but the eyelids gotta go. I don't understand what do people see in them? They really ruin the appearance of a car.

Re: Very sporty red C70 from Switzerland (GrecianVolvo)

I agree with everyone else, the eyelids have got to most definitely go. Other than that, http://********************/smile/emthup.gif. I wonder what exhaust he has. Doesn't look like an IPD/TME one.

Re: Very sporty red C70 from Switzerland (mike_c70)

lids on a black c70 pull fo sho. Saw it the other day in La Jolla, rims looked just like our chrome canistos, the difference was that they were dished, not much, but enough for a nice lip, prob a two peice. I was envious. prob on 19's with rediculously low-pro tires, looked badass though. Gives the "sleeper" effect a stronger meaning, haha...lids making the headlights look partially closed and whatnot...

Re: Very sporty red C70 from Switzerland (Faraaz23)

Think it's lovely, which is strange because I dont really like red Volvos.

I'd guess that the rims are 18" - I don't think that Mille make 19's (but could be wrong)

Think that a light smoke on the windows, a black grille and badges would really set it off.

Who's is it??? Any performance mods???

Good effort so far...

Re: Very sporty red C70 from Switzerland (biggerhurt38)

I have got some, but they came out kind of dark, nothing like these (I blame the British weather personall

Will see what I can do and post some more soon but they will probably be of the new one.

Re: Very sporty red C70 from Switzerland (topless_tart)

Hi, the wheels are indeed 18" (but Mille Milia has them also in 19" topless_tart)

And Kai, he has a KW coilover kit http://********************/smile/emthup.gif http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

Here is the answer of the owner of the car:

"thank you for your compliments.

Yes I have the Mille Milia Evo wheels 8x18, and the tires are Pirelli P-zero rosso 225/40/18.

I' ve wheel spacers on the back and the front of the car.
I' ve kw coil over kit, it's only a prototype. the higt i don't know exactly, but could lowred him more.
I've no sportexhaust ist only a attraption.

Thanky for your interresting! If you have more question, you can ask me more."

Re: Very sporty red C70 from Switzerland (BenES)

Ah, nice...I can't for the coilover kit to come in then. The stance should be a lot better then....arggh!!!

I hope with the 18x8.5 HREs, they should have the same effect as this guy's C70...but doesn't stick out as much.

Btw, you should really invite the guy to come on Swedespeed...especially we got so many C70 owners here. :D I still cannot believe how many active C70 owners we have on this board.

That's because we don't do anything else! http://********************/smile/emwink.gif WoW! The coilover kit sure tucks those rims in. I wonder with those spacers on, how is turning is...rubbing?
