      at dealership... C30/S40 hood scoop!?!

      (i searched "hood scoop" in the C30 forum but found nothing, so...)

      I was at my dealership this morning getting my new steering wheel taken care of, and they had a C30 with all the "look good" add ons with a HOOD SCOOP! It was completely cosmetic... the hood wasn't cut or anything.

      I never heard of this from Volvo... has anyone else seen this? At first I wanted to vomit, but after staring at the care for 5 minutes, it slowly grew on me. Of course, I wouldn't do it, but some of the other S40's here may look good with it.

      It surprised me to see a C30 on the lot with that on it. I didn't have my camera, so I don't have anything to post. Does anyone else know what I'm talking about?

      I know Heico has a hood scoop on their new 08 V50. Not sure who makes it...Perhaps they had the volvo one? Perhaps the car you saw had the Heico one?

      Cool. I'd at least like to see a picture of it. Is it functional? Hmm, on second thought, that's a dumb question.

      Dear god no, adding hood scoops to a non top mounted intercooled car is retarded.

      Oh god. I missed that thread. wowwwww.

      That wasn't the type I had in mind though, it was either heico or evolve, whoever had a blue V50, might have been iPd now that I think about it, but it featured a scoop that looked like the ones on a Buick Regal GN.

      So I was at the dealership today getting my oil changed and I saw this hood scoop for sale on a shelf. It is like 380 bucks. I should have taken a picture of it. As well for the C30 you can order custom colored trim jobs including the center console. They had a blue C30 with blue trim interior. It was pretty neat. Sorry I didn't snag photos.

      Edit: Looks EXACTLY like this C30 Hood Scoop

      I could see it on the roof if it was a rally car, but its to shallow, and not wide enough to be a hood scoop, even if our cars had a top mount.

      Id make it functional and put it right over my BSR intake. But i dont think it would look good.

      I thin I am all but done with performance mods
      until I need a new clutch, so the evolve style nostrils might in order. They are cool and would prob help flow through the engine compartment (read :vent out not in)

      What's worse is that they made matching side panel scoops that fit just behind the C30's side windows.

      It's way out of whack with the car's design. Just plain horrible.

      Current: 2017 V60 Cross Country Platinum with Polestar tune & iPd rear sway bar. Previous: 2008 C30 T5 v2.0 with iPd tune, Heico exhaust and interior accents, K&N intake, Bell Intercooler, Evolve springs, iPd rear sway bar and adjustable camber arms.

      ok guys.... here are some pictures from the dealership. At first glance, it looked terrible, but I guess it's not as bad as I first thought. Of course, the fact that it's 100% cosmetic ruins everything.

      Enjoy... ?

      Yes it is just as bad as you first thought. I'm sorry but IMO that is one of the worst things you could ever put on a C30. I mean they glued on a hood scoop, come on. That being said you are right, it might look a little better if it was functional and if they would have molded the scoop to the hood but even at that I would have a hard time doing it to my car.
