Hi All,

I am planning a V60 CC OSD purchase within the next 2 years. I have a couple of questions:

1) The beautiful 20" 7-Spoke Matt Graphite Diamond Cut Alloy Wheel, available in Europe and Canada, is not available as an option either on the US Volvo website or as an OSD option :facepalm:. Grecian you guys kill me sometimes. What is the best way to get these wheels? I assume the FDC won't sell them to me, nor can I buy them from a dealer in Sweden while I'm driving the car. Do I have to drive my car to Canada and buy them there? Please advise!

2) I will NOT be driving with red turn blinkers longer than I have to. I will buy the Euro spec rear lights from the UK website noted on another thread and change them out stateside. Will Volvo dealers do this for you? I am in DC area, would a niche outfit like Scandinavian Import Service Center in Rockville, MD do it? Or will nobody do it since it is not "DOT" approved? :facepalm: Grecian you guys kill me sometimes.

3) Aside from keeping my red OSD license plates on the front and back, I plan to further Europeanize my car by requesting the removal of all backside lettering other than the VOLVO letters in the back. Can I request this as an option from the FDC? Again, would a Swedish dealer do this for me? Does it damage the paint to remove the letters after they have been put on?

Thank you for all of your input!

On 3 remove the letters with heat, dental floss or fishing line, most cars now days are just double sided 3m tape holding on logos and letters

For amber turn signals, just purchase a 2020 XC40 RDesign. ;)
