      IMHO the Volvo V60 is great as a family hauler, but NOT for rear facing child seats. It's going to be tight. If you want a high performance wagon that can handle multiple rear facing child seats, I...

      Everyone is entitled to their opinion. Fortunately for me I was able to test drive both when I was in the market to replace my E63 AMG wagon and I preferred the Drive E variant by far. The 8 speed...

      Very cool as usual - thanks for sharing! I'm impressed you taking the P* wagon out there with the likes of modded Focus RS/CTRs. You have a good read on the track - do you use driving sims to get...

      Carfax/Autocheck is definitely better than nothing, but it isn't perfect.

      Congrats on the CTR btw! I love how it handles but I just couldn't get over the looks and the fact that it only seats...

      Yeah, that's local to me and they are a McLaren dealership as well. This one has been on sale for a while now.

      Had to drop off something to my wife - decided to take a pic of our cars.

      Sure no problem. Wow, if yours has a gap, I would think it wasn't fitted in properly and I'd do what LukeFlynn suggested vs. bringing it in to the dealership again.

      Is there a specific area of the door panel you want a picture of? If you posted a picture of the area you are questioning, I can try to take a pic on my V60.

      I've had zero issues with my P* for the past 1.5 years since I bought it from the original owner. It's not a daily driver (and even less so the past two months due to COVID19).

      I'm currently at...

      2nd that - sounds like the dealer isn't very competent if they can't find anything. Definitely find an independent shop or another dealer for sure.

      Autonation Volvo San Jose did a good job. I didn't see any visual discrepancies and functionally everything works fine. It's still under warranty so if there is an issue I can just raise it then.

      Recall R89978 done today

      Last Friday the Volvo dealership contacted me to let me know they had the new door latches in stock to address Recall R89978 so I booked an appointment for today.

      Dropped off the P* in the morning...

      When it comes to engine mods I totally agree. The one mod I would like done with my P* is a manual transmission swap, but I don't know if that has ever been done.

      IMHO if you have zero debt, go for it. Given how rare the P* is to begin with, you're not going to get much selection.

      FWIW, I negotiated down to $35k for mine over a year ago and it had 29k...

      Honestly you should test drive both if you can. I do think you would be happy with either one, although if you are serious with doing upgrades later, I would skip the 2017+.

      If you are staying...

      You should try to test drive a 2017/18 P*. They are very different compared to the MY15.5/16. They may look very similar on the outside but they really are different cars.

      Your best bet is to look for a local pick and pull/salvage yard.

      Sigh - I didn't say it was the same car or engine. I explicitly said that is was _based off the Drive-E_. I also said it was much closer to the WTCC race car (vs the inline 6).

      I don't come by...

      I've had no issues with the Drive-E motor. The Polestar S60 TC1 engine is based off the Drive-E. The not-so-secret Sport+ mode is a variant of the anti-lag system in the TC1. If anything, the P*...

      Thanks for your response. From my (limited) use of Sport+, it is way too manic for use on public roads but I suspected it would be great on the track (as P* designed it for that). I applaud your use...

      That is beautiful! I can honestly say that if you want to mod your P*, the MY 15.5 and 16 models are the way to go. Very nice!
