The V70R version is typically the Meteor, a 16" wheel. The 17" Comet was an optional wheel.

I've always liked your yellow 240. Is that spoiler kit still available from Johanssons MotorSport?

Thank you so much for showing us these beautiful cars. Those 2 cars have got to be the most jizztacular, make ya wanna commit a sin on them, hot as hell, supersexy cars I've ever seen. Amazing, unbelieveable, fantastic... those words cannot begin to describe what you've done. Without inspiration like this, none of us would ever make such automotive perfection a reality. You are an absolute pimp daddy, mega kick ass, bomb diggity, mofugga. Please continue inspiring Volvo 240 owners everywhere. We need more people like you, especially at turbobricks.com. I bow to you, for you are worthy of worship. Praise the lord for creating people like you to lead us down the path of glory. :urgod:

towerymt>>>> My spoilerkit came from a company that no more exist but Johanssons Motorsport sell a simular kit and i think they still have it.

Isaac>>> Thanx man , but there are 240is that are greater them mine.
But i will continue with my 2 ones and upgrade it.

Next weekend the blue one will got a new set off speedometers.Those original instuments will be removed and Opel Kadett GSI digital instument will replace them.I will post a picture here when the operation is done :lol:

Are those really 850 spoilers grafted/molded/blended to fit a 240? Or is it one of those 850 kits for a 700 they used? I don't know why Volvo seemed to just forget about the 200s when it came to any extras.

BTW Isaac....you wont have to worry about any pictures of my cars having wheel lips.....I removed all my wheels...for weight reduction purposes!

Quite yer bitching and go buy a FWD car with nice flat face wheels. Many people would kill for a car that takes a 20mm offset which allows some massive lips, but if you don't like it, too bad!!

It's actually very easy to tell the 850-look kit from the real 850R front spoiler. The kit appears to have been designed as a compromise between the 850R style of openings and the square lines of the 240. It has a much more square shape that matches the profile of the bumper, as seen here:

Although I like the yellow car pictured above, that link reminds me of the Plast & Son kit, which is a bit extreme for my tastes. Just reminds me of a train and all I can think about is curbs and speed bumps, then looking for my missing chunks of fiberglass. Now the other pics you posted, LOOK like an oem thing......nice and subtle.

...that's true, but your car sure as hell wasn't an example of that!!
Excuse me for saying this..but I don't like "raggar 240s" with extralights everywhere...if you do good for you!
I think a 240 looks best without a bunch of plastic, but it has to be in somewhat good shape.
Lowering and rims. The paint must be nice and shiny, and all doors and stuff must be adjusted correctly. All exterior on the car should be 100% nice...hehe. Like the bumpers...they must be black..not sun faded.
That's just my opinion on how to get your 240 to look like a million dollars.

acutualy i was going to rag on that car to but just didnt feel like being that mean. Seriously that car is pretty rough. it looks clean from a lil bit of a distance on the car. But i think you can tell from the gehtto ass trin work in the car and what appears as cut out tin foil for a brushed alumnuim look on the center console. And all the spiggeti he has laying on his audio wires. lol
Those seats arnt volvo are they cause they look like covers that just dont fit.
And lets also mention the 3 different tones of"woodgrain". Looks like all it needs is a WHOOOOOO WHOOOOOO exuasht tip to comlete it.

Listen not tryin to bang on the car but it just looks cheap. And if your going to jump into a post with some realy trick bricks and start talking about what looks good, you should realy post some clean pics.

Ok...if you think that's mint condition it shouldn't be to hard finding a really cool and nice car for you. I'm not trying to be mean either, but that was no state of the art example of a 240.
Ofcourse...what other people think is of no interesrt to me...and I guess what I think is of no intersert to others, but that's what I think...hehe.

"Where are my pics??"
I can't remember that I've told you my car was in mint condition??
Right now it's pretty shabby actually, but it is going to be stripped and painted(again) ++ this summer.

Yes that is correct..348rwhp to be accurate 8)
I will try to get some photos out on the performance forum.
The engine is being replaced with another engine that's almost finished now by the way..by the summer it should be installed and running.
It's a more powerfull engine..16valve head, bigger turbo and autronic injection and ignition++. Looking forward to this like a little kid :lol:

I'm sure your car is/will be very fast/nice.
All of our cars are in different stages of development, and we all have different goals- surely you can accept and understand that. So either can the attitude or can yourself.

We don't need all the members being afraid to even post their cars for fear of them not living up to your "standards".

Constructive criticism is great, but try to keep it that.

Besides, we all know I have the most awkward looking, most untastefully modified 240 here..

If someone is choosing parts that I think may be less than optimal, I say it and explain why. That is contructive in my opinion. It would be moreso if I presented the theory with a velvet glove instead of an iron fist.. i'm working on it. ;) IE "dude that turbo is poorly sized, this is why..."
Pretty different from just basically saying someone's car basically sucks and that is all. I try to stay out of styling arguments largely because of their subjective nature.

See, people take it personally when you argue something simply by presenting the numbers. This is dumb. But an attack on someone's taste and their own personal car IS something to be taken personally, there is a line there.

Maye you should look at some of the more technical, interesting, and long-running threads in the performance forum, and what some of the most commonly debated mods are there, and ask yourself if I'm constructive or not. :roll:

Yeah, Michael, I think the red stripes on the bumper look goofy. You need some new alloys - IMHO the Virgos don't look good in black. And that paint...is that faded beige or dirty white? Oh, and get some better headlights. :wink: :wink:

Yeah... criticisms ... I ve read really good ones and other times ... well ... I have hung around the board for a few years now , ive seen lots of really knowledgable people come and go ... and seen newbies become experts in no time flat (just go back and look at the archives) , without building a single thing and suddenly offer "constructive criticism?". Ive read several posts where certain people criticize others on poor designs or you should have done this and that to get the swirl to go like what not.. same people talking about how what they are doing is the "best way" ... and argue why .... then be humble by someone like M.A. ... and then actually change there tune 180 degrees after that and somehow make it sound like they new this all along.

I am not saying that you cant learn from what other people are saying ... I just think strong constructive criticisms shouldnt be so strong without some kind of experience to back it up. This is the main reason I dont post much ... everthing I have posted in the past ends up being dumped on somehow. That wont work ... this isnt the way or you paid how much ?? It kinda sucks. I dont know wtf I am talking about either so ............... nevermind. Hopefully some of us will make it out to Cali in April.

Well, that's a debate that can go on forever, and has been rolled over many a time. But I do think that you need to look at the current status of both the board, it's posters, and their respective projects, not the archives that, while entertaining, are relatively redundant with regard to this discussion.

I ask questions about the aspects of motor building I don't understand, and made no claim to understand some of that stuff. The majority of arguments I personally have been in of late were regarding things I HAVE done, thanks anyways. And, many times the answer is a matter of math and physics- experience or not. Do people need a disclaimer saying "Also, I did not always know all of this stuff, and i learned it form people with more experience"? WTF? Doesn't that go without saying? Makes no sense to me bro.

If people are hearing more experienced people and are doing a 180, the board is doing it's job. I'm sorry if that makes you bitter or something. People like stealth don't share their info with the hope that nnodody considers changing their perspective, but exactly the opposite.

I agree people end up getting dumped on, and I can be a dumper, so maybe I was the kettle calling the pot black. Is that what you want to hear? Either way he was treating that guy like crap not because he disagreed with his proveable or unproveable engine theory, but simply based on how he styled his car which is pretty weak in my opinion.

Thanks. A friend of mine liked the idea too, but wanted to do it his own way. By combining the frame of the 240 grille with the center of the 740T grille, he created an even better looking grille, I think.

Michael if you don't stop posting pics of cars with those hideous extended lip wheels, I'm gonna kick you in the nuts.

You've gotta be kidding; those are the nicest wheels I've seen on a Volvo, period. JP MK 18, I believe 17 x 8.5. That lip is massive and amazing. Why do you think Polaris are so nice? Because of the lip, that's why. Ever see some of the new BMW's w/ the 19's with huge lips? They are simply ridiculously beautiful. If I had a choice of ANY wheel for my Volvo, looks wise I would definitely go with those JP's. They are super rare, only in the nordic countries (maybe not, but it seems that way from what I've seen on the net), and NOT in America. If you had them, you could literally say you had the only set in the country.

P.S. I have Volvo Comets that I run in the 3 nice seasons and I would gladly trade them to anyone for the JP MK's.

Pssst...if someone posts pictures of a car that has been painted red inside and is far from mint condition on the outside, and he says.."hey you guys..a brick doesn't need plastic to look good"...then he asks for it!
A car that looks "used" and dirty, and where the only mods are red paint and ugly seatcovers doesn't deserve to be "lifted up in the skies" if this is a serious forum.
I could understand it if you were a bunch of pickupdriving rednecks??...are you??

I'm not attacking that guy, and I don't wish to "spit on" him, I'm just telling you my opinion.

I also think that yellow car (gula faran) that started this thread looks like a piece of ****, but that's because I don't like those enormous bodykits on a 240.
I think it looks like someone have tried to rebuild the car, and do it better than Volvos engineers, but without luck. Hideous!
But I cannot do anything but to agree if someone says it's in mint condition...its paint looks good, and all small details are taken care of etc etc. You can see that it has been taken care of, and that someone has put a lot of work down on this car...but I think it's ugly and the styling is far out of control!! Overdone.

how much ground clearance do you have with the plast & son front spoiler? and is your car lowered, how much? i'm thinking about getting the body kit, but i've already lowered my car about 1.5" and i don't want to spend the money only to bash the spoiler off...

thanks!

My spoilerkit are not from Plast o son.
Its from a company called spoilerkit.com but they dont make spoilers for 240is anymore.
I have lovered my car 6cm in front and 5 cm back.

Did you use standard lowering springs, cut springs, or coil-overs? Just curious, the lowest sport springs I've seen are only like a 4.5cm drop.

The springs are original R-sport but in front i have taken one and a half ( dont know the english word ) lap??? of the spring.
