Hi guys. I have an 04 S60R but this question is general enough that I think it belongs here. I just installed a 2-DIN headunit with the only 2-DIN radio surround kit that I could find for 01-04 S60s. It is rubberized, which isn't a problem by itself but the color doesn't match the rest of the black plastic in the car. So, I'm looking for info on putting the 05+ style radio and heater controls in my car. There are more available dash kits for the 2DIN stereos and I would like to do a full console swap to get all that shiny aluminum in my car anyway. My search attempts failed me, so here are my questions:

1. Will the 05+ heater controls play nice in my 04?
2. Will the 05+ kit even fit in my dash correctly? I noticed that the unit has a brace behind it whereas the 04 style has the heater controls separate.
3. Is there a paint code that I could use to match my radio surround to the rest of my trim?

Thanks!

Unfortunately it's no to 1 and 2 as far as I know. I think the CAN bus speed and physical mounting changed between 04 and 05.

For 3 there has to be a matching paint somewhere. Although, IPD has the one you need in stock: http://www.ipdusa.com/products/10476/121857-double-din-radio-trim-panel-s60-v70-xc70-2004

Search for Volvo 8684591 if you want to try and find it cheaper.

You shouldn't have any trouble selling the one you already bought.

Wow do I feel silly. I could get the right part from IPD? Well, I'll just do that. I'll happily go without the 05+ style dash if the color matches. Thanks for the info.

You're welcome, and let us know if something is glitched and it's not the right part after all for some weird reason. But it should be.
