      I have played around with this quite a bit - being a gadget guy. At first, I would have said "waste of money". For me, it certainly is. Why? Because I am considered to be a damn good driver and...

      Honestly... how lazy could one be that you can't flip some sort of handle to fold the seats down? Ditto for those "soft closing doors".

      I was thinking about this Fumoto thing... But since the effective drain hole is smaller than that of the drain plug, I would assume that the oil would STILL shoot out like a water gun... Don't you...

      Ceramics are the way to go. While they will not have that "initial bite", they can still get into ABS just as well. You will just need to push harder on the brakes. I've installed ceramics in all...

      That's true.... the clips break. But they should have replaced them. Volvo put it there for a reason. Also, I have a lift...it was TIGHT and well beyond the 25NM spec.

      It improved the "center tracking", but it reduced the ability to steer into moderate turns. I never had an issue with the center tracking. So this was a major downgrade for me.

      Yes, it has gotten worse. I also have a 2017 Momentum. While the tracking within the lane remains the same (or better), it appears that they "dumbed down" the steering such that it no longer...

      You don't see a speed difference since you're going too slow. Then again, the difference isn't that much at higher speeds anyway. Regardless, it's not for me. See pic below.
