      Since the idea of buying used keys and (independently) getting the red key have been mentioned; if you're thinking of buying used red key, I believe you need to make sure that it is not the red key...

      From the US MY2018 owner's manual, it seems like there are settings that can't be changed with the SPA xc90 red key. Speed limit can be adjusted, but these other things may or may not be ok for you:

      For the OE tablet holder, the kit comes with a replacement headrest that has a built-in support for the tablet. It may be easier to see if you can detach that add-on part by following similar steps...

      One caveat, is that since D2H is not an OE specification, I haven't seen any OE HID bulbs in D2H configuration. The quality of aftermarket HID bulbs can vary greatly, which can affect whether or not...

      Thank you


      How flexible was this plastic sheet, and is it 100% opaque or just tinted?

      My go-to source for many of my DIYs (not necessarily automotive related) are local brick-and-mortar stores...

      If you're ok with solid roof, then adding "limo" (i.e. the darkest) tint on the glass panel and keeping the OE shade used should solve that problem, no? I did something like that before:...

      Welcome

      I haven't seen threads that indicate one is less reliable than the other. My choice of T6 was more driven by the options in the year I purchased mine; that time, 3rd row option is not...

      Fair point; the relevant trim removal tool has about the same width (maybe a bit wider) as a popsicle, with a progressively increasing thickness to about 3-4x that of a popsicle. Instead of taping...

      There is a thread showing how to remove the SPA xc90 grille; there's probably a lot in common with other SPA grille construction:...

      Thank you. Different passengers (family & friends) have had differing preferences.

      Most of my passengers agreed that the OE retractable shade is opaque enough, in that one no longer can take in...
    13. Foldable moonroof mesh shade

      Made some modifications to fit a foldable mesh shade between the OE glass roof and the OE retractable shade (more pictures here). Doesn't interfere with glass roof and retractable shade operation,...

      Longer than I thought, but the longest was brainstorming on what can fit between the (OE) glass panel and the OE retractable shade, and still keep them operational. Plus, I wanted whatever the...

      +1
      Although, I can't say that I'm sad that the sealed beam headlights (that was required in the US as the rest of headlight technology advances) are no longer used. And if the gasket on the bulb...
    16. Fitment test & test drive

      I took a test drive, including on the freeway (with 65mph speed limit) with the front glass panel retracted. The shade hasn't flown off, and seem to remain in place.

      Front left corner pushes onto...
    17. Adding magnets to compensate spindle grille effect & make attachment more secure

      The metal frame was sized so that the edges push onto parts of the xc90 between the glass moonroof and the semi-opaque retractable shade. But it helps to add magnets somewhere in the middle to make...
    18. Sewing the fabric trim

      Time to put the fabric trim (i.e. the long fabric material that covers the edge of the sunshade) back. Since it probably helps to have a very secure and tight stitch, I decided to cover most of it...
    19. Securing the metal frame to the fabric mesh

      With the fabric mesh laid on the floor, and then the cardboard template, and then the metal frame (that has been reshaped and cut to fit), we will secure the metal frame to the fabric mesh. It helps...
    20. Trimming the metal frame and rejoining it

      The metal frame looks to be made of some type of steel; ductile enough to be twisted for the mesh storage, but too hard to cut with metal shears. Cut to length (i.e. that ~16 1/3" excess) with a...
    21. Resizing the metal frame

      Using the cardboard template, I re-straightened the metal frame, and then re-bend the metal frame to follow the perimeter like so:...

      Thank you. If someone sold a ready made one, I wouldn't bother. (it'll most likely be much tidier than my DIY)
    23. Pulling everything apart

      The shade needs to be deconstructed so that the mesh and the metal frame around it can be trimmed to size.

      There is a cover for where the frame fabric meets....

    25. panoramic moonroof foldable mesh sunshade (semi DIY)

      I've used a set of aftermarket foldable mesh sunshade for the side and rear windows of the SPA xc90 (link here). So far, I haven't found a vendor that sells one for the panoramic moonroof. I bought...

      Moisture condensation on the inner surface of a headlight housing is not impossible. While it doesn't hurt to ask the dealer, there may or may not be an issue with the particular headlight housing in...

      Indeed. Iirc, even some OE ballasts (maybe the Hella or Mitsubishi) can have a rather large igniter box that sits where the bulb connector is.

      For D2S, it depends. Yes, D1S bulbs have an integrated igniter that cannot be separated from the bulb, while D2S bulbs leave the igniter to the ballast. However, D2S ballasts vary in their design....
