What is the going rate for adding the Sport Body Kit? I have the 2006 Electric Silver and since it wan't an option I am going to add it on. My dealer told me they would do it at the original cost of around $2000, part of the deal, but they are about three hours away so I am going to check my local dealer where I bought our XC90 from and get a quote. Just wondering what people are paying but I assume the $2000 is a very good price and well worth the drive as they are also going to give me a loaner for the day?

Mike"R",

I assume your actual costs weren't that high as the body kit itself isn't that expensive is it? I thought I recalled someone on another thread stating you could get the kit for around $1400.00 because the price had dropped. I hope my sale person knew what she was talking about when she told me $2000. She was a very experienced sales person and looke it up and told me they would do it at their cost.

Well I havent checked in awhile. But Ive never heard of s60R kit being discounted, I beleiev it isnt even a kit but has to be pieced together.

Now the regular S60 has a body kit part # and it was heavily discounted for 04 models, because in 05 the reg. S60 bumpers changed and so the 04 kit no longer worked. I still think you will pay alot more for a kit after the fact unless the delaer sucks up some of the loss.

I assume you know the exact cost of the parts. I wouldn't think it would actually cost the dealer $4,000.00, assuming your department didn't actually charge the service department based upon a profit, which probably it did for business reasons. What is the exact dealer cost for the parts, anyone know? All I know is what my sales person told me and I will hold them to it. She told me they had installed several body kits and they would do it at "their" cost if I bought the car as I wanted an R with it but liked the Electric Silver. I guess it is well worth the 3 hour drive each way and they said it would be ready and they would give me a loaner for the day to go sight see.

You're spot on.

The regular S60 body kit (that goes on 2.4, 2.5T, and T5) can be had for just around 2 grand, painted and installed.

The R-specific kit, however, isn't a kit. It's pieced together . . . the only reason the parts are available is for replacement purposes. Everything comes unpainted. We've priced it up here, and it runs between 3500 and 4000, painted and installed.

If anyone can get this painted and installed for around 2000, there are two possibilities:

1) the parts guy who gave the quote doesn't know what the heck he's talking about
2) that dealership will go out of business very soon because somebody's not paying attention.

So, are you telling me your actual costs are $3500-$4000 and you are not making any profit at this price? Remember, this was part of the deal, I buy the car and they put on the kit at their cost, which to me means no profit. I would assume they made some money on the car, so when you have 6-7 R's on the lot, makes sense to me to make money on the car to get it off the lot and break even on the body kit. This Volvo dealership was number two in internet sales last year and one of the top overall in the country according to them.

Yeah, we'll see as I don't believe everything I'm told by any dealer, not to say they all lie. I still don't believe it cost the dealer $4000 to put on the body kit though as one of the previous sales guys posted here.
