I'm looking at a left over 2002 S60 2.4T. What's a reasonable price for the dealer to install front fog lights...or should I just try to get them to throw them in?<p>What sort of deals are available elsewhere on left over 2002 S60s?
Local dealer wants $330, which is a bit more than the sales rep said he thought it would be. I'm going to see if I can get them to throw them in (in exchange for their $400 junk fee) or at least split the price.
I got them to split the fog light price <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmile.gif" BORDER="0">...so I got them installed for $165.<p>I've heard that the lights (headlights and fogs) are prone to cracking from stone hits since they're glass. I'm looking at getting stongard film or something similar. Anyone done that? <BR><BR>

You bet they are prone to breakage as are the headlights. I drove less than 11,000kms before I cracked my headlight. It costs $425 CAD to change it out so I went through insurance but my deductible is still $300. I bought Stongard for the two headlights and the fog lights. Make sure you order the ones with headlight wipers if you have them.<p>Installation wasn't too hard but I didn't do it perfectly. It really requires two guys for the headlights since the damn thing is so long and it curves around as well as up towards the hood. Other than that its great. You can barely tell its there.<p>BTW, it costs me $71 USD including delivery.<p>Pat<BR><BR>

I just applied stonguard to both my new S60 and the wife's 2000 S40. I did mine first, and am not entirely happy with the job I did...but as long as the stuff works, I guess that's the point. I was surprised the fog light pieces were so small relative to the glass surface of the fog lights. I just tried centering them...but there's a good chunk of exposed glass all the way around.<p>The S40 was easier since the pieces were smaller, and I generally did a better job on that one, but I think I may have applied some of them just a hair too low and they're not quite sticking all the way to the edge of the material. My wife didn't want me peeling them off and starting over, so we'll see. It definitely would have been worth having professionally done if I'd been able to find a local shop that'd heard of the stuff.
NJL, I had the same problem when applying Stongard on my S60. It really takes two people to do the headlights since the length of Stongard is so long. I have some small blemishes but I've gotten over it and its not easy to see unless you get up close.<p>The fog light ones are pretty small compared to the light itself. I centered them figuring that it should take a pretty big rock to bust them.<p>Pat
