Since this is a relative new forum, there are a few threads notably absent here, but very popular in the S40 and R forums. This is one of them. You can showcase any personal projects, installs, modifications or anything done to your XC60.


I will start off, with a install of some paint protection film on the hood, mirror covers, bumper, 4 door pulls, side skirts, rear diffuser and headlights. Very happy with the result.

Some photos.

Very nice, I really need to work on the door pulls they are starting to get that scratchy look

Staying to the title of the forum, I washed my wife's XC60 in preparation of sealing and waxing tomorrow.

Nice.. I had similar paint protection done on our XC60, but did full hood and the A pillar and front portion of the roof too.

Some idle chit chat is allowed. I'm not going to enforce the "stay on topic" rule here. :)

I looked at mine last week and said the same thing. Plus it makes the dirt easier to clean off and black doesn't show the brake dust as badly as silver.

Love the color of the VX and the clear bra wrap. I've had it done on two cars and it has really helped!

Is it me, or does it look like the designers ran out of idea when they finalized the area around the DRL under the headlights (see 3rd picture). It looks like they designed the front end and then saw the massive gap around the DRLs and patched together the piece that is there now. Seems to be so much potential...Why now carry over the honey comb grill that centers the lower bumper or throw a real fog light in there...

Swapped out the brake and reverse lights with LEDs from superbrightleds.com. The install was a little tricky due to the extra length on the LED bulbs, but I got them in and I am happy with the result. A little more than I wanted to spend (about $25 per bulb), but gives the rear an upgraded look at night...in reverse....when I will never see it :p

I'm reviving this thread, because it's just a bunch of fun to what someone has recently picked up for, or done to, their ride!

Soooo, not super exciting, but I just got new OEM gas struts for the tailgate;


New rear bumper spoiler;


OEM mud flaps;


New H8 lamps for fogs (giving them a shot, seeing how close they will match the city lights);
