      It actually looks like a near perfect match for the paint color when hit with sunlight.

      The blue on the polestar logo is a bit darker.

      LED bulb replacement is a pain in the butt on these cars. Brake lights didn't get along with the bulbs I bought, and the front turn signals triggered the hyperflash symptom. The pain with the brake lights is that the wiring is all bound together so I can't install the resistors. Weirdly, the bulbs I bought for the rear turn signals worked flawlessly -- nice and bright, no hyperflash. My LED headlights and high beams work well post-resistor too. MUCH better visibility than my old halogens. My search continues for front turn signals and brake lights that will play nice with my electronics, though.

      Also finally got my K&N filter slotted in. Nothing "wow"-inspiring, but it certainly improved the throttle response on tip-in. I was a bit disappointed that I didn't notice much of a change in the engine note as stated by others. Overall, though, I'm happy with it.

      Right now, I'm waiting on a warm enough day to smoke my head and taillights and to chrome-delete my window trim and grille.

      First snow here in SE Michigan yesterday. Got around 8" ( not pictured, obviously).

      Sold my 17" pegs and blizzaks to clean up the garage a bit (three sets of wheels is a bit much).. put a set of general altimax arctic's on the 18's... she's a ripper, to say the least.

      In all honesty though, the altimax's are my favorite snow tire. Super affordable, great ice/ deep snow traction and studdable!

      Looks good! How are they in terms of road noise and sidewall stability? I hate a loud snowtire that drives like they are made of jello.

      Not any snow here in Stockholm yet, but at least I've got my upgrade from 16" to the 8x17" Sadia with Nokians done.

      Got my snows on. Amazing how jacking up at the front pinch weld lifts the entire side of the car. The rear actually came off the ground first lol. That's one stiff suspension. Also installed a Red Start/Stop Button. I like it.

      They're not any louder than the blizzaks but I think the sidewalls deflect under load.

      Honestly, still not worth the extra $400 to get the blizzaks imo.

      I have done it several times now but it always baffles me how difficult Volvo made it to replace a cabin air filter in a 2012 S60. Could they have made the space any more cramped? Good heavens! Still worth the headache when saving $100.

      It is tight, however it only takes 5 minutes to do. Much rather change this one in the one in my '05 Outback. You actually have to take the dash apart to get to it.

      Yea, last time it took me 10 mins, yesterday about 20. Was struggling with the fit, forgot to feed top part in first which really made it easy. Next time, I will try for 5 mins.

      The weather finally cooperated in the Midwest (no heatwave nor snowstorm) so I decided to mount the FF75 earlier today, I like the result!





      Yes, they’re in the back, I have more use of them as backing-up-light / work-light.

      Wheel spacers? I assume no since we have the same wheels and my stock ride height v60rd rubs in the back with a 20mm spacer.

      No spacers, its just a lot of wheel and tire to try and squeeze into the wheel wells especially with stock camber and a lowered ride height. Its just rubbing on the very very edge of the fender liner when it hits a sharp bump.

      Yep. Have the same issue when I corner hard. That plastic piece is removable, FYI. I don't get any rub after removing it.

      The correct answer is 245/35 19. 😉 I run that size on HR springs and get no rubbing and my wheels are wider than the Polestar ones too! Polestar runs that width and sidewall size on the car from factory but in a 20” wheel.

      New wheels on. I'm thinking I'm liking them better than my old BBS set. Wish they were a bit more aggressive offset wise, but I am happy enough (compared to 50 and 55 offsets)

      Wheel specs: Rays Waltz Forged s5-r wheels. 18x8 with 44 offset.

      Looks really good lowered. I don't think I could realistically get away with lowering or a smaller sidewall here in MI. The ride in my V60RD is already pretty bad.. I can't imagine a higher spring rate and less tire are going to help that.

      I think 0.5" would be good..

      Back of powder coating for my Polestar winter wheels, a GTechniq ceramic treatment to protect them and I install them, I can not wait to see the final result!

      Going from what you have (R-Design) to H&R would be only 0.6" beyond current.

      I still have my H&R's sitting in the basement. I need to get them on stat! My issue is that with my 235/45's, I'm probably going to have to take the 15 mm H&R spacers off.
