      Did you bother with warranty claim? Like I told them, I don't see how new ones are going to be any different, and they don't cover the install, which is where most of the cost is. Sadly, I bought HD...

      Depends on how fast you drive. 😉 If you're just putting around, you rarely get over 3000 rpm. IIRC, 75 is at least 3000.

      * Eh, maybe 3000 is more like 90 mph.

      No, you claimed "The issue with the 6 cylinder cars was never piston rings." That's just flat, categorically wrong. Words mean things. You can definitely say a certain fault caused some number of the...

      Yeah, it's a nice unit, but with a little work, you can do it for 25% of the cost by mounting an OEM XC60 intercooler.
    5. Power flex black LCA bushings clunking

      I think they started out okay, but now my alignment shop says they are definitely loosened up and letting the LCAs move around. I can definitely feel it as I cross center on the steering wheel, with...

      So now I know why the angst over the message: it's obnoxious on our XC60. It blinks on and off, and pushing the button doesn't turn it off for more than a couple seconds.
    7. What do I need to know about getting a 2021 XC60 or XC90 in the late spring/early summer?

      There was chatter a while ago about the program waning, but seems fine for 2020. Any rumors about next year?

      Hah! I feel you, but $150 doesn't buy squat anyhow. I'm spending $300 to verify a $600 tune. That's less than the LSD, or the clutch kit, and that's just parts. DP and FMIC was less than $500, but I...

      But you have the files, so you can at least go back and compare. Not sure who is getting more power, as I haven't been able to find a lot of results...

      😐 Am I missing something here? Why don't you just flash back to stock and take another run?

      I did a run with Polestar and got about 225/255 at the wheels. My first tune from Rob felt about the...

      So, my alignment shop told me my 6 month old poly bushings in front cause a clunk/pop, so I'm going to try to see if it is really just me sitting in the car and a little vibration after sitting...
    12. Any experiences with muffler/exhaust clunking around?

      I had this weird clunk in the back driving me nuts, so I finally got around to jacking up the rear and looking around and the muffler flops around like a landed fish. I got a hanger kit from FCP and...

      Is this a bigger bother than I think it is? I'd rather lighten the load on my alternator and push one button to clear the message. I'll have to test and see if it goes away on its own anyhow.

      Yeah, not quite a knock, either. Kind of a cross between a knock and a pop. Definitely not a ping, which is what I'd call an exhaust noise. Or did you mean like a burble pop type of noise, which the...

      Okay, 7 seconds in on the recording linked below. Seems you can hear the clunk more than the engine in the cabin. Going to work on using an outside mic.

      I managed to be recording while it made the noise, but you can't hear it. I may have to do some filtering and see if I can isolate it.

      Oh, that it were so easy. There are both brands of 320mm calipers shipped on the cars. To make it more confusing, Akebono also make pads for ATE calipers, which are the ones pictured above.

      That price seems reasonable. No timing belt to worry about. We have 166000 km on ours and no major repairs at our cost.

      The worry is an oil leaker. I'd get some kind of commitment on oil...

      Nobody mentioned ATE versus Akebono? I found out the hard way after being shipped Akebono-style Bosch Quietcast that I have ATE.

      Akebono have wire clips, instead of the leaf style.

      Pre-facelift includes 2010. 😉

      Oh, and get 2008 or newer if you want more power!

      ? As far as I knew P1 C70 in the US were all M66 or AW55-50SN. I don't believe we ever got the 2.4i. No AWD, but some have upgraded their C30, I believe. Not trivial.

      It's criminal they ever shipped the much heavier 2.5T C70 with less power than the 2.3 HPT. Every P1 C70 from at least the facelift should have shipped with Polestar.

      Every car should have a stage...

      8638 deaths by all causes per million. A little over 1% from car accidents... I'd worry more about heart disease and cancer. ...and drive a Volvo. 😉
