Added the Volvo spoiler to my C70 and took the BSR plunge

I added the volvo C70 spoiler from the accessoires list to my C70... Looks nice, at least I think so <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://photos-f.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs028.snc1/3163_1135425782097_1120890191_30403221_6802759_n.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://photos-h.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs028.snc1/3163_1135425862099_1120890191_30403223_3778872_n.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://photos-b.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs028.snc1/3163_1135425942101_1120890191_30403225_7441126_n.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://photos-e.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs028.snc1/3163_1135426062104_1120890191_30403228_7649630_n.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://photos-a.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs028.snc1/3163_1135425902100_1120890191_30403224_3973637_n.jpg" BORDER="0"> <BR><BR>

Re: Added the Volvo spoiler to my C70 (T5_awd)

The US Volvo web site doesn't show this lip spoiler as an accessory (although I see it on the "global" web site), so I had a couple of questions on it:<p>- Was it something that you had to have sprayed to match? Or was it orderable in all of the paint colors?<p>- How is it attached to the trunk lid? Is it screwed/bolted on? Or is it just held on with adhesive?<p>- How much did it cost?<p>It looks pretty nice!<p>2007 C70 T5 - black with calcite cream<br>

Re: Added the Volvo spoiler to my C70 (BlackC70)

- you order it at the dealer with your color code already painted<p> - it's held by adhesive <p> - I paid +- 400 euro installation included ( you could do it yourself, but my dealer states that you need special primer ... )<p>I love it...<p><br>Up next probably front grille without logo and maybe BSR PPC if I gzt thz guts to order it <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Added the Volvo spoiler to my C70 (koen_dr)

Koen_dr - do you happen to have the dealer SKU for your trunk lip spoiler?<p>My Silver 08 OSD C70 was a 'pre-built'...without the unsightly (IMHO) GPS/Nav shark's fin on the trunk/boot lid - so I'm thinking the Euro looking trunk lip spoiler would look less 'ricey' than the US whale tail.<p>Anyone know how/if the C70 Euro Trunk Lip spoiler is available through special order? Group Buy? Aftermarket?<p>Enquiring minds want to know! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emcocktl.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">

Tomkat:<br>I have pasted in the spoiler info from the Volvo Accessories catalog that our Retailers have online access to.

Re: Added the Volvo spoiler to my C70 (cdauerer)

Thanks Chris! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>My C70 is Silver Metallic. I'll check with S/S retailers about price and ordering. I don't think I'll need to worry about the 100 N of down force @ 125mph. No Autobahns here in Washington State.<p>Your FDC license plate frames looks pretty good on Tomkat III - doncha think? Not sure if I ever thanked you enough (or posted credit) for sending 'em. Pardon the tree pollen - it's that time of year here. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/cool.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emcocktl.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0"> <p><IMG SRC="http://i488.photobucket.com/albums/rr241/tomkat73/C70OSDPlateFrameSticker.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i488.photobucket.com/albums/rr241/tomkat73/V50PlateFrameHitch.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>

They do look good! I'll be in Gothenburg again in a few weeks, hopefully I can pick up some more. They certainly are popular.
