My C30 had a really neat sungalsses holder that replaced the grab handle above the door. Anyone know if the same one would fit the V40?

It is not shown on the Volvo accessories site but I can pick up one on Ebay

I have it on my V40 and I can't say that I like it, but at least I have a place to store my sunglasses. It is mounted were the handle bar would be on the driver's side. I find it a bit complicated to take out and put back the glasses when I'm driving, but its something to get used to. I do wish there was instead a central storage compartment on the roof, right where the seat belt indicator is, but then there wouldn't be any space since I also have the panoramic glass on the roof.

@jetstar well said...bet you'd all forgotten that clever 'safe' spot! sunglasses holders in the roof are for germans...I say that sweepingly but mine have coped quite well elsewhere for 16 months without the Germanic solution!

Bought this today, so disappointed. Have a standard pair of Ray-Bans and the holder doesn't close properly. A waste of money.

This is what makes me think it's more difficult than it's worth.

My old 56 plate Focus has one but my glasses don't quite fit so I use it for an emergency Mars bar instead.

Some glasses fit into them and others don't
What is more annoying is the pair of Volvo sunglasses I have don't fit the Volvo holder. I can understand that another brand might not fit, but surely they would be compatible with Volvo's own products.
