you mean a front lip, not a valance. and you have to cut and shorten the Volvo lip. then your still stuck with the fact that it looks terrible.

Very Sexy mt2 Vert!

To be perfect: Rear plate filler, euro grills, and euro plate would make use/hide those studs for the front license plate.

I love to see a nice clean care like that. Proves that less is indeed more.

Since those pictures were taken I ordered a new set of headlights for one of my other cars and the lights came with euro grills and a couple of german plates. If I could find a OEM front and rear bumpers with out the lights I would put them on, but since the car is stock everything right now I will leave it.

Sorry for only two pictures. I have had this car over 1 year and I haven't even bothered to take photos of it washed. The 325es is Bronzitbeige even though it's dusty as hell. I got if for FREE!!!
