      A week into ownership.....

      VERY nice vehicle. Put on the new rubber on today(DWS06), did an alignment at work, drives much nicer and quieter(Still had orig. scorpions). Still a little more road noise/wind noise than I expected. Will work on the wind noise , I see there are some updated mirror seals, and the one window seal seems to have a bit of noise.Fresh oil and all filters. Adaptive cruise is the bomb,wish I would have ordered that on my 200. Impressed how well it handles, and the power of the T6 is better than expected.Was going to do other mods, but maybe just the do88 intercooler. Polestar software is impressive, quite responsive, better than I expected. Exhaust is too quiet, IPD exhaust is on the way.Got front side windows tinted , and band on windshield, and interior lights switched to LED. . BLIS is a little flaky, dealer is going to see whats up when get remote start added in a few weeks, and fix one outside handle that does unlock. Has a hitch but no wiring, guess will have to add that. Got lots of good comments at work, looks good in white. Glad we bought it, thing is mint for a 2013 . Guess my handle shouldn't be BellevilleV70 anymore

      A week into ownership.....

      Congrats!

      For the towing - I just ordered the factory wiring kit. There's two part numbers - one for the module and one for the wiring that includes the 4/7 pin connector. Once you plug in the module you will need to use VIDA to code the module and make it active or have your dealer do it. The benefit to using the factory module is that it enables the vehicle trailer stability assist when it senses a trailer is connected, and that it provides the 12vdc power necessary to tow a vehicle with trailer brakes.

      Congrats.

      I love the T6. Everything about it makes me smile.

      I still need to get around to tinting my side windows.

      BLIS is pretty much the worst thing on 2013 and older models. They use a camera system so anything that pretends to be another car out the side view is goi g to set it off.

      Snow.

      Rain.

      Neighbors cat.

      Anything.

      I ignore it most of the time. The park assist is a bit flaky too especially in the rain.

      I want to see pics.

      It's not so bad.

      I was just expecting more since I had a 2008 Lincoln before this that worked flawlessly and my wife's 2010 Ford blows both systems out of the water.

      City Safety does work quite well though.

      I LOVE my 2013 T6! I don't want any other cars coming near it because I like this engine and don't want to replace it!

      Perfect! I just noticed you're in Canada. That explains why I didn't see this one in my searches. lol

      Oh my.

      I'm not a white fan but truly like that. Although i have been influenced to open up to white vehicles with Volvo whites.

      They just make some stunning white colors.

      Definitely a nice looking ride.

      Ya I've never had a white vehicle, and never been a fan, but the R design with the silver accents really looks good. Tried for red, but none to be found, so this was second choice.

      +1 on that! My 2013 T6 has 75 K on it, and it still has plenty of punch left in it! The new T6 (?) doesn't sound that impressive to me, a 2.0L 4 banger putting out 316 hp with 295 torque, with a turbo and supercharger? Volvo is going backwards here, the old T6 put out 281 hp with 295 torque with just a turbo, what gives? I'm sure my current '13 T6 would bury the "new and improved (?) 4 cylinder T6 (?) any day of the week!

      I have large concerns of long term durability on it......That's a lot of stress on a small engine. I understand they have to improve on things, but I think its too small and under to much load all the time in something this heavy.
