I've noticed a good amount of muddy splash up on my rocker panels. My S60 came with two small flaps mounted behind the front tires. I looked into a dealer installed kit. It priced out at over $200.00 installed!

I don't know if the kit has bigger flaps on the front? But the rear flaps look pretty good size and wrap around the body work a bit. Hmmm, I want protection but don't want to look like a truck or SUV.

Anyone out there using them? If so do you like them?

I had them installed on my 2013 S60 T5 when I purchased it. I agree with you I was concerned on the rear size as well. When I went to pick it up, They totally changed the look of the car and NOT in a good way. I had the dealer take them off. Don't waste your time in my opinion. I really wish they would come out with some that are similar to the front, that are not such a HUGE size variance.

I have them and like them. It's mostly a matter of taste. It saves me from having to scrape tar off the white car every so often. I paid around $60 (volvo OEM) for them and installation was a breeze (less than 10 minutes without special tools, didnt even have to lift the car). Hope this helps.

Yes thanks. I wonder why the dealer gets so much for them installed. There must be a high markup on them with high labor.

I added them to my 2012 S60 T5 after I spent 10 minutes on the "test track" at the FDC and saw all the spray up the quarter panels. To me they do not look bad (I've seen bigger/uglier mud flaps on other vehicles) and are totally worth it (again, to me).

I purchased front and rear flaps for my T5 and they look fine to me, nothing too ostentatious.

The rear one in the Volvo site picture looked big enough for the 242 I owned in the 70's ;)
