What's up guys!

First off, I'm new to the forum. Just bought an 05 s40 5spd 2.4i about a month ago, and wanted to spice it up. This car is my daily driver and Im looking for some good appearance items. My weekend car, is a 2003 mustang cobra ... with 600hp


I have already gotten a euro plate, and a rear tinted plate cover .. for starters.

Looking to get a grille, eyelids, tinted tails, and factory spoiler.

So as far as a grille, what badge do you guys put on? I'm thinking about a swedish badge that goes alongs ide the 'r' logo. Opinions? Pictures? examples?

hey joe, welcome to swedespeed!! http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

I've got a dubstop grill with an R badge - although it's not really an R, but I don't care. have been thinking about putting the "volvo slash" back on, but I think it's also fine this way.

Welcome to SS!
As far a grille badging goes, I had no badge on the S40 and I think it looked best that way IMO. Just for kicks on my R I had the IPD badge and now I just have the "R" badge.

HEICO badge might be good idea also. Just like any other mentioned above. IMO since Volvo's has no big place in the aftermarket world any of the above will make it unique.
You can always leave it plain blank.

BTW welcome to the forum.

Re: (05T5)

I am currently sporting the Heico badge, but have gone badgeless, volvo slash painted black (looks awesome, check out the Dane's ride), volvo slash sanded down to a brushed aluminum look, and I even experimented with the slash offset to the left side, and a couple other ideas. I have pics of all of those if you have interest. I personally like debadged or the Heico logo most, makes people guess what kind of car it is. People at drive thrus ask me all the time "what is a Heico? That is a super cool car, etc" http://********************/smile/emthup.gif Welcome to the Forums!

Re: (ForceFed Motorsports)

true dat. I have plans for a new grille setup, but no time yet. I have another class coming up this semester that is all about composites so I am excited for that, because it gives me access to all the fun stuff so I might make a custom CF grille and volvo slash out of CF.

Re: (jdsr917)

That would be nice. Thing is, even if all of us on the forums looked the same there are still a lot of S40s that look different, and our cars are unique enough and spread out enough that we are still unique to our friends.
