You have done a nice job there. You can see why Volvo dropped them as those parts look to be quite expensive. You did well to get those front and rear bumpers etc. for the price you did. Hate to think how much they are new via a dealer.

What model are your exhaust outlets off? My R-Design ones don't have the upright in the middle.

Looks like its been expertly done, but does it look better, that I guess will very much be a divided opinion - I like the clean lines without exhausts showing so for me its a no-likey, also - wonder how a dealer will react to any warranty issues or your insurance against any claims :?:

Warranty and insurance can,t be any problem.
Because all the parts are original volvo,
The xc40 until 2021 had these parts .

Point being the parts are not standard on your model year? If you were rear ended what would you expect the repairer to fit? A MY21 or MY22 rear end?
If the exhaust failed, unlikely I suspect, what do you think a jobs worth dealer might say?

@ Chris John - oh not you again :lol: @mcs - of course its your property and of course its your car do with it as you wish - and should anyone care what you do - NO :roll: , but I guess you still expect your insurance and warranty cover to be unaffected, so just pointing out that in my experience they can both take a dim view of modifications, especially insurance if they are not notified - as for the exposed tail-pipes, and again great neat job, but (and its only an opinion), looked better without the mod ;)

Mcs, of course you can do anything within reason to your own property (you can't fit massive over bright headlights e.g, even in the Netherlands).

Certainly the UK insurance industry demand you declare all modifications and additions to your vehicle, and if it comes down to having to replace parts that are not standard or declared then I'm sure that in the event of possible back end damage if this modification wasn't declared you would be charged for the extra parts, or the vehicle repaired as per factory. That's all oldie was pointing out, in his usual forthright manner :-) .

Quite possibly your insurance may also require such declaration. Not permission, just understanding the insurance risk they are covering.
