      R design spoiler and mirror hood covers

      I've got a dealer trying to tell me black (they look like carbon fiber but i'm sure they aren't) mirror hood covers and spoiler (attempted to attach pictures below... but don't think it's working) were an "option" on R Designs. Does anyone know if that's true? Seems weird to me as I've never seen them before.

      those r designs had silver mirror covers. the polestar in 2018 had carbon covers. those look like unpainted parts to me but mirror covers come painted. the spoiler im not positive on if they usually come painted or not, but i know that piece is not the polestar one one which is about all ive seen for spoiler on s60.

      edit: 2019+ spa s60 r design have switched to black mirror covers but that obviously is not a part for a 2019

      edit 2: google shows the polestar pre 2018 may have come with black mirror covers. think the carbon was added for last year of the 2018 s and v60 polestar. dont have any on the lot to confirm but i know the 2018 we had were carbon

      Here's an up close pic of the mirror hood... would an unpainted part look like that? This is supposed to be a 2016 S60 R Design... i like that the badging is stripped off but not sure about the spoiler and mirror hood covers.

      Volvo did offer an OEM Carbon Fiber Mirror Cover (there are also aftermarket covers) and it was standard on the 2018 Polestar models. Volvo never made the rear trunk spoiler in CF (only an add on piece from the Polestar models), but Viva sells an aftermarket one. I also noticed that they have the wrong rear diffuser, the one in the picture is from a 2012-2013 R-Design, which looks to have been wrapped in a CF vinyl. It doesn't have stock exhaust tip which leads me to believe why they went with a different rear diffuser.

      The dealer is full of it - all of those things were added on/modified by the previous owner. RD models came with satin silver mirror covers, a paint-matched spoiler, and the rear diffuser had the same satin silver painted section, not all black.

      Anyone know if you can CPO a car with all these modifications? They're trying to tell me they can but i'm skeptical.

      My 2016 R-design in that same power metallic blue is exactly as Veefifty describes. Silver mirrors, silver diffuser and body color spoiler.

      I have no idea if the carbon fiber look pieces were factory options or aftermarket add-ons, just telling you how mine came.

      This.

      Even if I were on the fence, the fact that this thing is debadged tells me all I need to know - anything that doesn't look stock, assume it isn't stock.

      also the polestar carbon parts including mirror covers were not glossed, they were bare. i would definitely suspect aftermarket items. not sure if that would be a problem with cpo, i dont think it is covered in the checklist but can certainly be used to negotiate. bigger concern is the type of person who puts aftermarket carbon fiber mirror covers and spoilers on the car...

      If the dealer says they can CPO it and they officially put it into the system, then it's CPO'd. But, beware that as of right now, there is debate over whether a dealer can actually sell a CPO'd S60 given the door latch recall.

      forget cpo, volvo dealers have been issued stop sale on all s60 2012-2017 with latch recalls, cpo or not. but we did just get latches today for a car that has been sold over a month, so there is a chance they can get a set and sell the car but they are not readily available yet

      Ding ding ding! If I noticed ANY cosmetic modifications to a car and I still wanted to buy the car, I would absolutely use it to negotiate the price down. Non-body colored cosmetic add-ons especially are something a used car dealer hopes you don't notice or complain about. They know it can hurt the sale price.

      Oh, good to know! I thought it was just for CPOs.

      My 2018 S60 R Design came standard with satin silver mirror covers, paint matched spoiler, and black rear diffuser. I ordered this car from the factory through my dealership.

      Most the Volvo dealerships i'm talking to aren't following that rule just so you're aware. Really wish Volvo would crack down on these guys. The variability in standards i'm seeing between dealerships shopping all over the country is really disappointing.

      They must have switched them at some point. There was a period of time where the R-Designs had a silver and black rear diffuser, but the Polestar had an all black rear diffuser. The OP didn't mention what year car he was looking at.

      The CF (or whatever that material is) mirror caps look nice. I wouldn't cross that one off the list just for that, somebody just wanted to personalize their car a little. There's plenty of more important reasons to discount a particular car. Whether they're covered under CPO would be pretty irrelevant - you don't often hear of mirror covers failing.

      I was more concerned about getting sold a car that was covered on CPO and then taking it into a dealership and them saying they wouldn't honor it because so many modifications have been done to it.

      I wouldn't worry about that. I wouldn't consider a plastic mirror cover and plastic trunk lid spoiler to be voiding a lot of warranties but that's just my opinion, lol.
