As the title suggest, post your suggestions, finds or needs here.

I needed a loadliner, not impressed by the cost of the Volvo one I went for one made by Titan Covers as you can specify exactly how you want it. I'll report back on fit and qaulity once it arrives.

MichealR's trick door LED's look cool may invest in those at some point http://m.aliexpress.com/item/188035...&af=73669&tracelog=wwwdetail2mobilesitedetail

Also MichealR's cup and pocket inlays http://m.aliexpress.com/item/2038830583.html

Heico do a range of good qaulity aftermarket parts http://www.heicosportiv.de/mainframe.asp?lang=en&e1=144

What I am looking for is a nice foot rest, Heico make one but is LHD only, anyone have a suggestion for a RHD?

I did a lot of research into boot liners last year and went for a boot buddy, it covers all the carpet in the boot and is self supporting so no need for annoying Velcro which melts in the heat. No need to drill holes in the boot either. Much better than the Volvo boot liners.
I also sourced a dog guard which again needs no fixing...just need to try and remember where from....again much better than the Volvo option.

I was just saying to the missus today that someone should design a nice, adjustable footrest for the auto. We were on a. Two hour journey and it was getting quite uncomfortable.

Pic of footrest is RHD?

Excellent topic BTW cheers ARB

On my land rover it had some desctreet painted door protectors that sat half way up the doors to reduce side swipe dint damage, looked part of the car and would have them if they looked as sexy as rest of car

Luxury R-Design floor mats would be nice :s since Volvo no longer seem to offer them

Heico have floor mats, http://www.heicosportiv.de/mainframe.asp?lang=en&e1=984 they may not have the RDesign logo being Heico though I bet they are nice qaulity.

I've pinged them an email about the foot rest, I'll give an update when I hear back from them.

Ha Ha - Darn I've wasted my money on leather :)

Although with the different ambient lighting colours I can simulate the dayglo effect at night

A quick update, with the foot rest I contacted Walter at Heico and was told they have no RHD foot rest at present, from this model year as the V40 becomes available in more markets they may produce one.

I gave up on Titan covers perhaps hastily it had been almost a month without receiving it so I contacted them to cancel the order only to be told they were about to dispatch it in the next 48hrs but would in this instance refund my money, I am yet to recieve the refund.....

So I ordered a Volvo genuine cover with optional boot flap at nearly twice the price, it came the next day, unfortunately it does not seem to fit, there is far to much fabric on the back of the seats, all other dimension are perfect, the material is good qaulity and feels robust, push button fixings are supplied and should fit nice a secure with handy pockets and a nice storage bag.

I am going back to Volvo Reading this week where there technicians will fit it for me and have ordered another one just in case mine is actually not correct.

Will post pics once fitted.

Well hopefully all enquiries made it will show there is an interest.

It's turns out with my boot liner that I am indeed an idiot, in my typically man like behaviour I chucked the instruction to one side, who needs instructions to fit a **** cover, turns out I do...

All in all I am pleased with the fit and qaulity although the boot flap needs tweaking.
