      S60 R-Design transformation progress

      In my area, there is no R-Design model for choose. So I start to find the way to transform my S60 T5 to the R-Design as much as possible. Thanks for the inspiration of wdimagineer and the help of seaton463, here is my current transformation progress...

      R-Design Steering Wheel


      R-Design Gear Knob


      R-Design Mirrors Cover


      R-Design Strut Brace





      The transformation is not completed yet. Hope that I can keep working on it.

      The R-Design Rear Diffuser looks good on a T5 if you also have the chrome exhaust tips installed. The tailpipe diameter is not quite as large as the R-Design tailpipe, but with the chrome tip accessary available for the T5, it still fills it in nicely.

      The upgrade to the R-Design Diffuser looks great? I have a T5 on order and already have chrome SS tips ready for when I get the car later this year. I am seriously considering the Difusser upgrade after seeing your pictures. How long did it take to put on the R-Design Diffuser? Any special tools needed?

      I have installed the Exterior Styling Package when I got my ride. Although the R-Design rear diffuser does look good, but I have to put it in lower priority. R-Design shocks and springs will be my next target (Heico spring is too low and too expensive to me).

      I just got a call that my 2012 S60 T5 should be in around Thanksgiving! I ordered the R-Design Rear diffuser from VIVA Performance and have the chrome tips that I will install. I have read that the install is fairly easy but that you need Torx screwdriver. What size Torx driver do I need? Anyone?

      If I recall correctly it is a T25 or T30. You might just want to pick up a cheap set of bits and a magnetic bit driver to have around. They always seem to come in handy in my garage.

      If volvo share the same size of screw for the most of the parts, then the screw driver size should be T25 or T25H.
