      Went to Cars & Coffee today; the Dave Barton Prancing Moose emblem and assorted window stickers garnered some attention:

      Our '15.5 V60 CC got an IPD rear sway bar with heavy duty IPD end links this morning. After a short test-drive and several on/off ramps, stability in corners is very stable...a noticeable improvement and a very easy install...for someone whose "primary workshop tool" is usually a ..... phone. The YouTube IPD installation video was perfect and easy to follow as were the provided color paper instructions. Highly recommended.

      Today I Traded in my 2015.5 V60 T6 RD in when I placed a V90 T6 R on order. During 30,000 miles it was a great car and will be missed.

      Got my V60CC rear ended at the Verrazano Bridge today
      Freaking people...

      https://youtu.be/DOGQg-hr3m4?t=1m10s






      This is the car that hit me (it was pushed into me by the X5 behind it). I'm still puzzled at the angle that Altima hit me...

      Thanks.
      I'm pretty sure they will. Going to take it to the same shop (Volvo operated) I took my 2013 S60 to 3 years ago. They did a very nice job on it, couldn't tell.
      This doesn't look like a big repair in terms of body work. Just bumper and liftgate are screwed. Rear quarter panels are fine, I think.

      Broke down for the second time in four Weeks... first the turbo piping tore apart and today the alternator belt ripped. Spent 4 hours waiting for a tow truck and then a cab home from the shop (today, well actually yesterday, was a public holiday)

      What are you doing that you're having those kinds of problems?

      The piping should last the life of the car, easy.

      Did you not replace the belt at recommended intervals?

      Belt should have lasted atleast 50k kms longer than it did. My guess is that the full year the car was barely used sped up the ageing of the rubber in the belt.

      Turbo pipe probably blew because I am running more boost that standard

      Got my car back with fob...now with pictures

      Got my car back from the dealer so thought I'd post a picture so Almaz doesn't think I'm ignoring the question.

      Oh, got a new badge too.

      I like the car better now. I still have to register with Polestar (don't think the dealership does it for you) and then I'll try getting the new badge.

      Indeed, you need to fill out a form on their website. Pretty straight forward tho.

      Nasty cell pic, but I added the 19" Ixion II rims and black mirror covers. Now if only we could get some nice weather, I'm dying to detail the car and add my Polestar front splitters!



      And if anyone is looking for R-Design matte silver mirror covers, mine are for sale!

      If you see another V60 in a parking lot, do you purposely park next to it even if there are other or closer spots? I do.

      Thanks! It really made a huge difference for me, visually. The car screams for a black/blue theme and these look awesome. I ordered the OEM set, Volvo part #31399362

      Sounds perfect for your car!

      See, since I got the anthracite KPAX x BBS 19s going on next week, I'm thinking I'll go for anthracite window trim. It's unique without being too loud and will play nicely off the summer wheels, or the OEM Ixions I'll be running in the winter. I wonder how the black mirrors will work vs the silver In those configurations?

      Black mirrors + anthracite would be better than the silver, IMO

      I'm a couple of days late, but for better or worse I parted ways with the S60 on Wednesday. Life threw me a curve ball late last year that has forced me into something bigger. It's too bad because I liked everything about it except for the sporadic pinging/boost dumping thing. (I really hope they figure that out for the rest of the Drive-E crowd.) On the bright side I ended up in yet another Volvo, the CPO XC70 in my sig. I considered a wide range of options but in the end Volvo wagons just work for me. Nothing else at my price point did the job but still felt like something I would be happy walking up to and driving every single day. So it's bittersweet but I'm happy with the result.

      Changed the oil and filter today at 58,230 miles. I used Mobil 1 which I had bought a while ago. I'll look for the recommended Castrol next time.
      This is the second time I do it myself (5K intervals). This time I added the Fumoto oil drain valve. Next oil change should not be the big mess it has been.
      Here's a couple of pics:

      Had our second set of Pirelli P7 Cinturato Plus tires installed. Last set started to slide in the rain more that I like at 4/32 front and 3/32 rear. They had 50,000 miles, not bad IMO.
