Re: (crazy32184)

lol!! No, he isn't selling one... They were all ragging on him in another thread (S40 forum) I would just go to the stealer and grab some touch up paint...can't hurt to have that stuff anyway!! Plus, this will give you an idea on how it werks, on something that can be swapped out easily!! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"><p><IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"><p>-Steve

I'd ask John at Boston Volvo if this is a part you can order. I was under the impression that the bumpers came pre-painted. If that's the case, then I would have to imagine that the cap would be pre-painted as well, assuming it can be ordered separately.<p>-Eric

They don't come from Volvo prepainted. <p>I lost one, and had to replace it. They come primed. Buying spray cans of Volvo color coat and clear coat, you are looking at $50.

You're talking about the plastic cover on the bumper? If so just go to paintscratch and look for your color. A rattle can will be less than $20 with plenty left over for anything else that might chip.

You can buy paint/clearcoat in a can from the dealer.
