German tuner Heico Sportiv has updated its Volvo XC90 appearance package to fit the aging crossover SUV that was recently updated for the MY 2007. Since its introduction back in 2002 when it was presented in all its shiny glory in Detroit, the vehicle didn’t change much, so the job of making a body kit did not put too much pressure on Heico’s designers.
Those constant redesigns and face-liftings are the real pain in the brain (yeah, I know that the brain does not feel pain, it’s a kind of euphemism, guys) for the tuners.
I mean, you pour a healthy amount of money in the design, machinery and all and then, surprise, another model year starts and nobody is buying your appearance packages except for the unemployed persons and bums. Damn.
Well, guys from Heico Sportiv don’t seem to give up and have presented their new appearance package for the latest Volvo XC90 SUV.
The body-kit is made of the new brake-proof PU-RIM material and consists of the new three-piece front and rear skirts. The front skirt is mounted on the original bumper and can house either fog lamps or the cornering lights.
The rear skirt has a mesh grill inserted into the diffuser and is recommended to be installed with Heico’s twin-pipe exhaust system.
