Has anyone added fog lights? I tried to order the parts today from my dealer and he said there is a problem with taking out the blanks and adding the fog light units, something about a condenser... I don't understand. What is a condenser relative to 12 volt lights?

Check out the website Swedespeed. Some folks there have installed fog lights on their XC60's

Descriptions, part numbers and installation instructions are on Volvo's accessories web site. A software download will be needed also.

Not really related but likely in the way.

A condenser is a fair-sized part from your AC system that cools and converts the warmed refrigerant from a hot gas to a cooler, high-pressure liquid.
The part is likely in the way of part of the installation and the dealer may be trying to avoid the service.
Never the less, it is a procedure specified in their own service instructions and you should insist.
Yes, it has absolutely been done before. Using non-standard as well as OEM parts.
