      The insurance company also owes you for diminished value after the repairs. The market value drops significantly and you must be "made whole" by having them cut you a check for the difference between...

      I use Bluetooth tethering with my phone. High bandwidth for Spotify and anything else as long as the signal is strong.

      VOC does use the internal modem whether you pay for a data plan or not. It's...

      Huh. I could have sworn I pushed something in that area and a little thing popped out like an sd-card shaped thing. Interesting.

      Wonder if anyone has bothered with the SD card slot to the right of the volume knob.

      Thanks Volvolic. Got my Valeo Audi wipers today, right in time for some light drizzle after a drought. Fit like OEM, pretty darn close. The only issue is that the driver's side blade is about 2"...

      The pirellis are to be replaced ASAP like most junk OEM tires. Stuffing foam into them to quiet them down is asinine, you're supposed to engineer quietness in the tread pattern and damp the wheel...

      I hate that you have to use factory blades for the S90, never had this problem with any car I've ever owned. Maybe Volvo is exotic, but their little hook is just a slightly different size than...

      Super annoying apple carplay problem

      So, quick disclaimer, I'm not using Apple Carplay, at least, not intentionally. I have an iPod nano tucked in the console and it's been there since 2016 when I got my car.

      A few weeks ago my car...

      That looks amazing, I appreciate cars that aren't one of the top three typical colors. Plus I bet it's easier to find in a parking lot.

      Don't really care for it but that Gulf livery in the background is amazing. I love Gulf Fords and Martini Porsches. Something so clean and balanced with them both.

      You can agree to disagree, but with the right codec options (constant instead of variable bitrate), a 320k mp3 is equal to a CD.

      Agreed, although if you convert CD tracks (wav files basically) to a high bitrate mp3, it'll retain the quality, such that it is in that frequency range. 320K mp3's are large but won't kill the...

      I have a loaded s90 with the B&W system. I just spent a month in an xc90 loaner with the HK system.

      There is no comparison, the Bowers system blows the HK out of the water. It's louder, it's...

      I would not recommend switching to 21's, and even the 20's are dodgy. Only because the sidewall is so short I have pinched 2 tires on the exact same wheel and cut the sidewall thanks to potholes.

      My 2017 S90 Inscription does also. You can run your finger across the top of the window edge and if it feels rough/lumpy in the center, it's laminated. Shockingly quiet too.
