      Not true. Polestar started by default on 2012 R-Design models.

      At least for US models, but last I checked, Kansas City is still US:

      Which is interesting considering my brother paid to upgrade his 12 s60. Monday the dealership is getting a call...

      Good to know, either way my 10 definitely doesn't have it.

      Like the emblems black. I plastidipped the chrome window trim black on my Tornado red Passat. I`ve done quite a bit of plastidipping for customers. I`m thinking about doing the silver trim and wheels on my XC60 a dark titanium color with metallizer over it in the spring. Think it would pop on the black sapphire metallic.

      Consider SMOKE dip as well, it will make chrome look like brushed aluminum.

      Passion Red looks great. Seen one in person last week or so. Not many SUV's can pull off red like the XC60R.

      S80 going in for tint today, 20% all around so a bit lighter than the XC. I have always had 20% on every car until the XC, but I was more wanting the tint look to be consistent than worry about percent.

      Pictures soon! Car goes in at 2:30 cst and should be done in about 90 minutes. My guy does amazing work!

      2006 S60R - brother, black on ice blue interior, loaded
      2008 S80 - Dad, sand color with tan interior. Pretty nice car, got me looking into volvos again.
      2009 XC90 - Mom, white on tan interior, loaded. Love this for road trips. Mileage could be better on the 3.2.
      2009 S40 - Sister, "puff blue" with tan interior. Baren, but my sister doesnt care. She loves it!

      And now mine . Now my mom needs a C70, and we will almost have every volvo made! (I dont much prefer the 30's, especially considering my G35 was SO much faster than the T5 C30).
      I love those Passion Red RD's, Congtats! There's a 2013 Passion Red XC60 RD for sale in my area with super low miles at a great price! I'm looking to upgrade my 2010 XC60 with a 2013 T6, I'm watching one right now! I just bought my wife a new C70 this past October (see sig) a beautiful car that's perfect for a woman! Tell your Mom to complete the Volvo cycle! Your RD is looking sweet!!!

      Looks awesome, black stone or black sapphire metallic? How about the interior, with some pics of the interior. Good job!

      It's sapphire black metallic and the interior is the black/off black full leather. Those are the dealer pics so I'll have to wait for delivery before I can get interior shots.

      Looks tough! I just scored a '13 T6 two weeks ago, my trade in was black sapphire metallic, looks better at night. I bet you can't wait to get it out on the road, and chew up some of the competitors! I do it daily regularly without Polestar, and some high octane. This RD of yours will be screaming, have fun...and go get 'em!

      LOL. Honestly, I'm more excited about the gadgets...like the LCD console, ipod connectivity, GPS, active cruise control, sound system and what not... I tried to cram all the options I think I would need into it.

      Yeah, black wasn't in the books and wasn't my first color choice, but it's the only car in the East coast with all the packages I want. The color is growing on me.

      BTW does anyone know the interior color codes for 2014?
      GT60 - Off-Black leather
      GR60 - Off-Black Nubuck/Textile Split leather
      correct?

      Talking Got my 2015 RD!

      Hey All,

      So my RD actually came in a day ahead of schedule. I absolutely love it. Coming from my WRX, obviously I am higher, in a more substantial vehicle, etc, but I get all of the benefits of a car like the RD: larger/space, quieter, interior comfort/luxury, safety with a package that is almost as quick, and once I get fully used to is, pretty much as enjoyable. Sure it is missing a pedal, but that is life.

      For the particulars:
      2015 R-Design, Savile Grey, Platinum, BLIS, Tech Pkg, Climate Pkg...oh and a baby, groceries, dog, etc.

      Thanks all. Here is my last ride (and some of the previous ones).










      And just for fun, I also had this one, albeit, only for a day...but what a day!




      I'll post more of the RD tomorrow!

      Something like that. I was pulling it off with the WRX, and we have a Forrester too, but I just needed more. Plus Subaru doesn't excite me anymore. The torque in my RD does though

      Talked a bit about coming from the Subaru here...

      ~ very nice and congrats!!!

      i really like the bumper and exhaust changes but wish they would have left some depth to the rims by not painting the inside black ... making them one dimensional.
