Hi all,

So many of you have been extremely helpful on this forum, just wanted to say thanks and thought I'd share some before/after pics of my S60. My previous ride "Eva" was a 2004 S60R in gray/nordkap. Here are the specs and conservative mods on my new baby "Morgan". (before pics on top)

- 2012 S60 T6 in Sapphire Metallic Black on Beechwood (a shame they don't make beechwood for the new R!), Premium/climate pkgs, BLIS, parking sensors, PCC.
- Mods include:
- rear spoiler
- rear R diffuser
- 18" Rial anthracite wheels
- 30% tinted windows
- front skid plate
- portable GPS installed

Sorry for the crappy iPhone pics. What do you guys think? Suggestions on the next project??? Considering Polestar upgrade if it ever goes on sale, lowering coils, R mirror caps, aluminum pedals...

Thanks!

RD mirror caps ans sports pedals will look nice. Also, a shifter knob is a nice mod.
My next project are LED fog lights.

Looks good! I doubt the Polestar tune will be on sale anytime soon, but it's definitely worth every penny. Can I suggest getting chrome exhaust tips off a 2013 model, they are much larger (compared to '11/'12MY) and are only .5" smaller than the R-Design exhaust system; or just upgrade to an aftermarket exhaust.

Agree about the chrome exhaust tips from a 2013 model, they'd help set off the tips much more with that new rear R-design diffuser.

Overall, very tasteful modding--it looks fantastic.

It sure looks sharp. Very tasteful.
The rear diffuser is especially nice. I have the appearance package but if I new better I would have skipped that and done what you did in the front and back

Thanks all! I will look into the 2013 chrome exhaust tips. Anyone know if they just bolt on or do you have to shave any of the existing exhaust?

They clamp right on.

I'd like to know the same, I just removed my spoiler that I've had for a little over 3 months on my 2011 T6. Had to take it off because it was peeling off in places. Did you install one that was a bolt on?
