Re: 1998 V70 XC Auto plus many extra parts, $1000, Aurora IL

Re: 240 quad headlights on an 850 ?

I'll admit I'm a pretty biased person in design discussions, but there is some background. The only reason the 1980 240 came with 4 round lights is because the silly American regulations prohibited the much much better single lens and reflector european lights, which was what the car was designed w...
