What's a flare?

(Off topic but is that a lowered XC60? Why not go for V60 instead? Feels like defeating the purpose of having a SUV).

It looks like a photo from the Japan car magazine "af imp." (see the license plate). You might start your search there.

Contact George at ViVA Performance. He has access to their parts. Given that he has to use a supplier outside the US, the price might be uncomfortably high. Then again... it might be worth it if it's what you want.

I like the look of the erst parts quite a lot! Hadn't seen that kit before.

Wonder what the cost to Viva would be to become a US dealer for erst?

yea that would be a problem. It would be great if one of these chinese companies can make some knock off flares. I think i'd pay up to 300-500 for a unpainted set., but not 700-1000 that ERST and Heico want. I see so many accessories from china on ebay right now, but nothing like this. The erst ones make the xc60 look more like the xc90 with the flares.

"Flares" are the piece that sit along the wheel well and stick out slightly.

As for your off-topic comment probably one of the same reason why we chose the XC60 vs V60 (added height in the rear cargo area).

This, but also because women don't seem to like wagons and a happy wife is a happy life lol.

And because we've been buying the XC60 for years and the head-shed in Got just recently saw fit to ship us some V60's here in the USA. :)

Perfect Volvo (IMO) would be a Polestar V60L CC :) Extra clearance for curbs and a bit of slush, extra room in the back for todays mondo-sized car seats and that sweet sweet exhaust note :)
