      Hello, kinda new but have been following your mods with great interest as my mom has a 08 s80... That being said, I am looking to do the '13 shifter retrofit for my '12 s60 but can't seem to find the part #'s for the s60 or are they the same for both models? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

      Yes. They are, indeed, the same part numbers for the S60.

      Volvo offers the polestar tune for the s80 if you live outside of North America. Unfortunately, it's not offered here since the t6s got the smaller brake rotors in North America.

      2015 S80 T6 polestar upgrade

      I recently picked up this car at the end of May and note on Volvo's website that this upgrade is now available for this model. Does anyone know whether this is strictly for the new drive e engine or have they finally made it available for the 3.0 liter T6? My S80 is a 2015 model v. 2015.5.

      I'm going to speculate that it's for the drive-e model. The main reason for them not offering it on the T6 S80s in the north american market is that the T6s didn't get the larger front brakes that the V8s did. In europe, the T6s got the large V8 brakes, so because of the extra braking ability, the polestar software can be installed. I don't believe that they moved to the larger brakes in the T6s in 2015, so I believe that only the T5 Drive-e would fall within the braking capabilities of a north american s80.

      This is speculation, though. It would be best to write to vcna customer service. Don't trust a dealer's answer to this question as they are generally quite misinformed.

      I think that reason is baloney frankly. The 2011+ XC70 T6 AWD can be had with Polestar in the USA but it has the same 316mm front brakes as the S80 T6 AWD. And the XC70 is heavier.

      Hey Itwontstopsnowin,

      What about this as a retrofit? Is it doable?

      07+ S80 V8 Spark plugs

      OEM Part No: 30731383.

      They come back as NGK 5368 IFR6B11 Laser Iridium Spark Plug

      Cheapest I found was through IPD for the OEM 8 pack.

      This is on my list to check. It looks like the V40 mirror will be a better fit. Technically they say the 2015.5 mirror doesnt fit, however the windshield mount looks to be the same. It appears as though the only difference is the bezel around the city safety laser/camera/rain sensor/etc. I'll be testing to see if it can be made to work with modification of the bezel on older models.

      I didn't see this post until now (whoops!). I was just repeating what a VCNA rep told me. Sorry if it bugged you. I think it's a stupid reason too. Volvos still have much better braking than many other cars on the road -- even with the smaller brakes on the T6 and 3.2 models.
