hi there - i was just looking through a german forum and a few people over there have put that chrome strip on their recent xc90s. <br>here is a picture <p><A HREF="http://www.motor-talk.de/attachment.php/back.jpg?s=&postid=9472919" TARGET="_blank">http://www.motor-talk.de/attac...72919</A><p>that stip seems to be standard on the 07 models, but you can also get it as an accessory for "older" xc90s. <br>i like the looks of it and was wondering if anybody here knows where to get it and for how much.<p>thanks<p>fritz

Re: chrome strip for tailgate (AccuView)

I was thinking the exact same thing when I saw the pictures of the new 07's. I was going to wait until the 07's were on dealer lots before going about finding the proper part number for this. I hope it just clips in like the front chrome insert piece did that some of us ordered off the V8's when they first came out.<p><A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=39241" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=39241</A><p> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: chrome strip for tailgate (k2volvo)

thanks for the answers - too bad the link didn't work, but it is easy now to see a picture of a 07 model from behind. the guys in germany said the strip for the back is just put on with sticky tape, but holds perfectly. hope to get one for our tailgate soon.<br>fritz

Re: chrome strip for tailgate (fritzlovesmary)

I've already sold one for a customer that has an '06 XC90. Our price is $43.11 plus shipping. They're on back-order right now but we'll be getting them in soon. They're chrome plated plastic with double-faced tape already applied on the back side. <p>Please let me know if you have questions.<p>John Sharisky<p>

Re: chrome strip for tailgate (AccuView)

I ordered mine about a month ago and have been a little lazy putting it on. Well I did it tonight and I have to say it adds a little something to the back end.......so much so that my wife commented on it and she didn't know I had ordered it (she usually would never notice something like this)<p>Thanks to John over at Boston Volvo for getting me the part. Double sided tape made it really easy to install.<p><IMG SRC="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v281/k2volvo/Summertime06012.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v281/k2volvo/Summertime06014.jpg" BORDER="0">

Re: chrome strip for tailgate (k2volvo)

Well, all I can say is that it looks cheap. I saw them on the new '07s at the dealer and everyone I saw was coming off at the ends. If I pushed it back in place it would stay for about 5 seconds and then pop back again. Seems to me that Volvo is just adding crap to an already good looking SUV. They should leave well enough alone. If I were to get a new XC90 I would rip that thing off.

Re: chrome strip for tailgate (COMark)

sorry but I don't think that looks very good as is. I really think you need a to buy a new VOLVO emblem and put it higher up like on the '07s.

Re: chrome strip for tailgate (XC90 Black Saphire)

I agree (I was thinking along the same lines) I do like the chrome strip bit it fits just slightly down from the emblem. I may look into what a new emblem will cost and post pics if I change it.......thanks <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: chrome strip for tailgate (AccuView)

Well, I like it a lot. <p>I think not having the plate installed was throwing me off at first. I think It looks great. Good mod <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Tim <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0">
