Talking volvo XC replica side skirts?

VOLVO XC60 XC 60 SIDE SKIRTS !!! NEW !!! NEW !!! NEW !!! | eBay

What do you think? If you plastic pudding the XC sign away and paint it the construction looks like it could fit?
The price is right atleast
Would fit my matte black/white theme I'm going for if I painted them black too.

Edit: Blah.. the new volvos have (109.3 in) around 20cm longer wheelbase. Might be too long.

Nein, it will not fit for the following reasons

It is made for a Volvo XC60
It is made for a SUV not a hatchback
It is too large
It is too wide
It is too ugly

Funny you say it's ugly when it's pretty much the same design as the official honda one, allthough that one is in fake carbon fiber (which I don't want).
I think it would look great color coded or black in my case, but doesn't matter. It is too big.
The hunt continues...

Doubt it, plus mounting holes wont be in same location. not to mention the design angles on it wont match wheel arch angles.
