      Here are some pics of my car from the Owners' Day at Volvo Cars of North America today. The sun was nice and bright, so the Ember Black was looking amazing. Two people asked me if it was a custom paint job. I believe I had the only Ember Black Volvo in attendance! I also installed a brand new set of Chrome Venators for the event. My old set was in seemingly good condition, however once I installed the new ones, it really made it clear that the old ones weren't as nice as I thought. The finish on the brand new wheels is simply stunning.

      Hi Jose, mine is the pre-fl so it doesn't have the chrome trim at the side

      The reflection in the pic does make it look as if it has it...

      Mine doesn't either, but I really wish it did. It just adds a little extra to the car that makes it look more classy.

      Snow added to his. I am not too sure but I think the trim comes in a set including the sides and the taillight?

      The chrome trim came standard on the V8s starting in 2008. Mine came stock with it. It is available as a kit from Volvo, though.

      The V8 models (after 2008 apparently) came with the additional chrome. Lower models got it if they had the executive package.

      You can buy the package but it's laughably expensive. You can get it from Tasca for a bit over $700. It's the full kit for the front, sides and rear (below the tail lamps). W/O park assist #31213663, with #31213662

      I like the chrome pieces but not sure if I like them enough to spend that much.

      So after looking at the chrome piece on other white s80s I decided I'm definitely not going to spend $700 for this, doesn't make much of a difference to the detail for the price. Not saying it doesn't make the car look better because it certainly does, just not $700 dollars betterin my opinion.

      You can buy the chrome pieces to the doors (and tail lights if you want) without buying the whole kit called Exterior Chrome Kit.

      Part numbers are below, I can't be 100% sure that these are correct. But it seems that way, I'm searching for these in the swedish junkyards

      Part numbers for door pieces:
      30766945
      30766946
      30766947
      30766948

      And for the tail lights:
      31283495
      31283496

      If I remember correctly the price is roughly 600 SEK per piece here in Sweden if you buy them from your local Volvo dealer. It seems that the US stores online sells them for about $65 a piece. I've bought a couple of them from junkyards here in Sweden and got to pay about $40 a piece. I'm just missing the last piece, then I can install the door trim on my car

      One thing to keep in mind is that when you buy the trim pieces you need to drill holes in the existing trim to fit the chrome parts. If you buy the exterior chrome kit it comes with new door trim as well (but it needs to painted).

      Love how the lights look at night. Now just need to upgrade my taillights to the 2014 style.

      I am really on the fence about these LEDs. In some pics I like them, but in others, I dont. I wish the design of the whole package was just a little bit more stock looking. I don't like that the chrome strips are not the same as stock. However, I love the way they look when they're illuminated. I may just buy a set to try them out. I can always go back.

      Since I had them, everyone thinks they are stock for the car. You personally know they are not and you can see there is a difference because you're so adjusted to seeing the stock chrome. I think you should give them a chance, especially for the price. It really updates the look of the car since all of them are now getting led lights.

      My other concern is that they might be too blue. In the pics they look pretty blue, but I know that sometimes pics can be misleading. Are they actually white or blue? Thanks for your input! I'll probably order a set regardless.

      In this case the pictures are completely misleading. The lights are not blue at all. They are actually really white. The only other color I seen them show was like a purplish color that outlined the white if that makes sense. You would see this up close at a certain angle. It was when I first installed the lights but the purple color has since gone away, just took a couple weeks.

      That's interesting, maybe every car is different. My warning keeps coming ON every time I brake even after dismissing it.

      Really? Mine only does it when I start the car as well. If it happened every time I applied the brake it would probably drive me crazy. Maybe the XC90 checks each time the light is used rather than at start up like the S80 (I'm assuming you're referring to your XC90).

      It's my wife's car, so if that warning didn't go away, she would be quite annoyed!

      The older Volvos do check the brake lights every time they're used. Perhaps 07 S80s are this way, and 08 is the first year for them to change it.

      Can't be this, I have an 07 and the warning stays away after the first time I dismiss it until I turn my car off.

      The car he is referring to is his 2005 XC90 which apparently checks the brake light each time its used. His wife's 2007 S80 does not.

      Even if you did read it, you still wouldn't know. My bad Mike, my fault for not being clear. Anyway, I'm waiting for more S80 pics?!?!
