On the 2009 S40, the lower half of the rear bumper has two grey plastic ovals, where I suspect there should be fog lamps or reflectors. Are all US models like this? The grey pieces look a bit strange.<p>Thanks!

AFAIK EU models have red reflectors instead of the grey filler peices. The tail lights themselves are already factory equipped with a fog light right from the get-go regardless of the market.<p><IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/gallery/albums//FWD%20and%20AWD/S40%20Mk%20II/2008%20Facelift/Exterior/017.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/gallery/albums//FWD%20and%20AWD/S40%20Mk%20II/2008%20Facelift/Exterior/015.jpg" BORDER="0">

According to my dealer's parts department, the reflectors aren't available in the US.<BR><BR>

Body paint match the grey covers, don't get the reflectors. I think they ruin the look. Try to blend them in and not have them stick out. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">

Nah, just use that area to mount some stylish James Bond style accessories like flame throwers or a smoke screen <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0">
