Hey C40 rockstars! 💥🔥

I got this slick C40 Tee from Volvo Of America accessories website! Super soft and smooth and it gives a C40 identity to your well being! 🙂. I also got two DNAS Volvo Cup Coasters that really look nice. Swedish stickers and a Bixuan Car Center Console Pad are also forthcoming!

The wheel and tire shine including new car perfume added to my C40 “wheel deal collection” (aka - car polishing routines).

I got a Spigen installed tempered glass screen protector which looks well designed and works well.

Any cool accessories or websites (aside from Volvo and Amazon) I should check out for C40 trinkets? ☝😊

No you cannot link them. These are two separate and distinct cup holders that fit perfectly in the C40 cup holder! I am really liking them especially because beverage bottles come in all sizes and especially the ones that are thin diameter!

By link I’m sure the OP meant provide the website address for the Volvo accessories page where you found these.

There may be some controversy about this, but we love the (overpriced) headrest pillows that Volvo sells (some people don't like the way they velcro over the standard headrest.

We have them in both our cars. They move the headrest position forward to exactly where I feel it should be and make the seat that much more comfortable. They come in a charcoal leather (part 31470565), a charcoal wool (part 31470560), and a blonde leather (part 31470566).

I have to admit that they are stupidly expensive, but if you wait until a holiday, they will almost always be on sale. In my experience Riley Volvo or Faulkner Volvo will be the two dealership pages to look at, because they seem to discount the most. Riley is also active on the Swedespeed forum and will often post a special discount code over there, which you can stack on top of a holiday sale.

We have the black wool ones in one car and the blonde leather ones in the other. Here's what they look like and how they attach.

Footnotes :
*This is different from the Volvo also now sells a cheaper "comfort pillow" accessory that looks like it might be more for the rear headrests, but I have no experience with that one.

** Also different from the Volvo "neck cushion," which are again outrageously priced. We have one of these for long trips and actually don't recommend it — not sure it really adds much to the comfort of the ride, and it's no better than a cheap thing you could get from Amazon.

Let us know it turns out, and who knows, maybe you have "on the road" to a new "start-up business"!
I come from a long, proud tradition of Mickey mousing things.

Started with a Square cut out of heavy duty double layer cardboard from a recent TV purchase. Heat tends to warp the stuff so we’ll see how this handles it. Traced the radius of the corners onto paper then onto the board.

Hobby Lobby sells headliner material. I’d have preferred something more premium like suede but this is an experiment at this point, gotta keep costs down. 3M Super 77 spray adhesive handled bonding duties.

Rectangle Textile Sleeve Wood Beige


Next up time to trim to shape with some craft scissors. These have come in handy so many times.

Here’s where things stand currently. Still searching out a reflective layer for the top. May use an old foil bubble wrap style sunshade I have laying around. Also need to figure out how I’m going to suction cup it to the glass.

Creative and amazing. Wouldn't it be great if you could get some type of a spring that attached to the edges of the shade and put just enough pressure on the headliner to hold it in place?
Im thinking of some swiveling plastic “fingers” that I can slide into place above the headliner to hold it in place. We’ll see!
