IPD has Genuine Volvo Sunglasses holder, has anyone bought one yet???

Post by June » Wed Sep 18, 2019 6:17 pm

It's a Genuine Volvo Accessory I never noticed before. It looks like it is mounted where the handle in the headliner is and can be installed on either one or both sides. It looks convenient for storage, but being above the door opening does it get in the way? Anyone who has one do you like it? Thanks, June

Car came equipped with it. About as useful as having an ice scraper permanently mounted to the inside of your rear window.

Devil only wears Parada!
Does he eat at Parada?

Note - Prada Eyeglasses....Parada connotes "Interruption or termination of a movement, action or activity."

A caveat-- if you have a dedicated pair of driving glasses you use for no other purpose and wanted to be able to leave them in the car to avoid misplacing them, it could be useful.

If, like most eyeglasses wearers, you use one pair for a lot of purposes, not so useful.

Yes I have a pair of prescription sunglasses that stays in the car for driving only. I have always kept my driving Sunglasses in a case in the console armrest. That holder looks more convenient than fussing with a case in the armrest, plus free up space in the console. I was also worried it might stick out in the way since it is above your head. June
