      Never was a fan of hellaflush.

      Then again I drive a lifted Subaru and a Volvo estate car.... so I suppose it's to be expected.

      I love everything about it except for the rear wheel width / camber. I'm just not a fan of the "broken axle" look.

      same here...

      side view: I like
      45° view: I want to puke

      the camber is just plain retarded, it looks totally out of place. Shame on that build, makes the car look broken.

      I don'T mind very, very low (air or other), I don't mind "stanced" with pulled fenders, bu PLEASE leave the camber normal and don't stretch too much.

      It's on air suspension, you wouldn't drive it at that height other than in and out of a car show at 5 MPH.

      Too much camber. Possibly too low of an ET as well. It's such a pretty car but ...

      Nope... It's got a static suspension. Straight custom spring rate coilovers.

      Seen it online many times before. I respect the time, money, and quality of work put into that car, but I do not like what they did with it. They turned a Volvo into a JDM.

      I agree. For their desired outcome (I am assuming here... ) it's great execution. But it's dumb.

      Careful there.... There actually exist people who know what the acronym means, outside of the Honda Race-boy parlance.

      Oh, I'm not speaking negatively of Japanese Domestic Market, there's some nice stuff from Japan. Heck, I'm part Japanese myself.

      I'm just saying that if I saw this car in the corner of my eye, I would have thought it was an Acura wagon with a lip kit. It has lost it's Euro-ness with those wheels, the camber, and lip on a lip. VWs are the only Euros that can pull off being slammed with extreme negative camber.

      I'm not too sure what to think...

      The bodykit seems OK, I guess. Kinda like the wheels, I'm a sucker for 5-spoke, and a small lip on those...

      But, I don't really like it slammed, and the camber mess things up BAD!

      I hate camber. People buy adjustable camber arms for the rear to gain camber... I'm going to use them AGAINST camber...! Hate seeing an axle look broken... And I only have a few degrees of it! Personal taste though!

      It looks pretty good for a show car. It is on stancenation for a reason. It's a different culture. I mean their motto is form>function.

      the form is quite ugly in the rear.

      form > function is fine when it looks good. This looks seriously bad for the rear camber.

      To each their own.

      Other then the excessive camber and poke, I think this thing is one of the nicest looking Volvos I have seen.

      The car itself is really nice, and I can appreciate just about anything...BUT the rear wheel reminds me of a 98' Honda Civic (there is one in my neighborhood that looks awful) on cut coils and no camber correction kit. Show car or not, the rear is ugly...I never even liked VW'S that looked like that when VW was my thing...guess I'm not an air ride guy lol.

      form as more negative camber is better. that is how stance nation likes their cars. like i said before, it's a different culture. a lot don't like it big deal.

      We are the select few who pulled in the camber with the adjustable arms

      No offense dude, but in most cultures and regions, chrome signifies a lack of education and cheapness. Though, I have been to parts of the world where chrome signifies success and wealth; quite different from my home in Atlanta.

      Chrome can look nice when it's just on the rim of a wheel, grille frames, exhaust tips (sometimes), or logo letters, but it can easily be over done. It's not a fact of it being hard to clean, it's that chrome is a mirrored paint and not a natural metal/alloy color.

      When manufacturers were chroming metal parts, back in the 50s, those cars looked sharp and classy (still do!). But now most chrome parts on cars are spray painted plastic bits....

      Chrome is nice, when the car wearing it is able to wear it in style.

      My old Volvo 960 had loads of chrome. The chrom was something it was designed with. It wasn't chrome on the mirrors or so. Just some minor details like the grill, some chrome stripes in the bumpers, the door guards, the door handles and a very thin stripe inside the cabin along the dash. No more. It was enough to give the car class without making it look overdone.

      P1 Volvos have too much chrome from factory. The grill at the front is too much. A thing narrow beading around the edges of the grill would have been enough. But instead you got those "waterfall" grilles. Don't look right. Inside is no chrome. Instead brushed aluminium. That should have been used outside... Or machines alloy.

      That "Stancenation" V50 has too much chrome. Chrome wheels only look right on certain American made cars, like the Lincoln Town Car, the Chrysler 300C (only when black!). Etc. Chrome only actually goes with black or other dark colours... But that is my opinion. I am entitled to it.

      I personally chrome on a shiny car looks better... My rimd are pure chrome not some cheap plastic spray on ****. Shiny **** draws attention. I just dont see how anyone can think blacked out rims or a grille can look good when the car paint itself gives off a shine. Like mine does. Its different if the car has a flat paint to it, then it looks good. I agree that somepeople way over do it. If you have a NICE car, its different with chrome rather than someone from the ghetto putting 24's on their rusted out impala's. no.... But sadly thats what everything thinks of as cool. I went with chrome because my car shines like a damn diamond so why not keep it that way. BUT, i also wouldnt have minded black inserts. I guess it depends on taste. But i think i speak for all of here when i say we have classy cars and not ghetto rigged **** boxes...
