Crazy rake on there. Love those wheels.

The clean head parts only make the lower parts look more nasty though.

Nice splash pan and air pickup.
You win at details but fail at essentials.

Those are the first things I remove off 240s.

Well, they remove themselves actually.

You don't need half the stuff Volvo put on the car.
But they spent money to put it on there so it must be there for some reason.

Ken's saying that the air pickup that connects to the holes in the bumper lip helps direct air into the radiator and engine bay. Very useful piece of plastic.

I'm still rocking a ratchet strap. It works very well. *shrug*

The splash pan helps encourage natural air flow through the radiator at speed. Otherwise, air comes underneath, hits the crossmember, and helps fuill the engine bay (slight pressure gain) without bothering to go through the radiator first.

It's not a huge deal really.

Most of the plastic stuff under 240s uninstall themselves.

Along with some of the plastic stuff inside (door pockets, center consoles, visor clips).

Sometimes even the plastic stuff in the engine bay.
