I was hoping someone maby can tell me if the polestar cars uses the same emblem for the grille
as the trunk?

Also if the grille emblem uses an backing plate or if its just adhesive on the backside and is pressed on to the grille?

Hope you can help me out..

Thanks

The trunk grill is larger than the grill badge.

Both badges use an adhesive backing.
The front grill badge has two locating lugs on the back of it.

The front badge is the front grill badge
The one behind is the trunk badge

Great! Thank you very much the info & picture.

Do you perhaps know the part# of the grille emblem?

Also if its possible for you to take a picture of the 2 lugs on the backside.

Why do you need to see a picture of the two lugs?
They are used to mount the badge in the correct orientation onto the grill bracket.
If you already have the bracket then it will fit.

I will customize it so it will fit a grille from 2011 V60 t6. So it would be great if you know the part number for the emblem and a pic of backside. See link:https://www.garaget.org/?car=402032
You do realise the polestar badge bracket cannot be purchased separately??

Why don't you just buy a Polestar grill? it comes with the badge bracket and may also come with the badge

Check out the "What did you do with your car thread over in the S60/V60 forum. There is a thread there #2631 of how another member manufactured a bracket to install a Polestar badge to the front grille of a non-polestar vehicle.

can anybody tell me where i get this polestar grill?????
The grille in the picture you quoted isn't a P* grille, but rather an S/V60 CC grille that looks to have been painted gloss black. For some reason, Volvo used the honeycomb design on the CC grilles even though the lower grille doesn't match. It is, however, a perfect match for the P* lower grille and, therefore, a great little mod!

Thanks for your information, i agree with you that this honeycomb grill fits better to the lower grille and so i am wondering why it isnt used by Polestar. But do you think there are more adaptions to do or just the gloss painting?

I wouldn't paint the CC grille with gloss black as the paint will just fleck off over time. As for where to buy the front badge, you can get them on ebay or wish - There is a vendor out of China. Just go with the biggest front badge as there are two smaller sizes listed that don't look right.

I have a 2020 S60 T6 Inscription with Polestar and I only have the badge on the trunk, not the front grille. The Inscription grill is slightly concave, perhaps that has something to do with it.

Grill badge is only for Polestar Engineered cars. Vehicles that get the Polestar tune only get a rear badge.

So can anybody explain how it works to do the frontgrill modification (Replace the Frontgrill with the CC Grill and Pbadge) with numbers and where you can get the parts?

Hey Gustav,

Are you asking what the PN is for the grille? There isn't a PN associated with the P* grille badge as far as I know. The vendor who sells knockoffs had a couple listed on ebay but it looks like they have disappeared (maybe due to running out of stock or Polestar chasing after them-assume you saw the other thread where they harassed a member here with a legitimate badge kit for sale).

As for mounting the Polestar badge on the CC grille, it looks like members have fabbed a custom bracket for it. The grille attaches with (14) or so tabs that can be carefully pushed in and released with popsicle sticks or a plastic trim removal tool (wedge).
