      I priced out both units and the rotora’s are more expensive... the playground tuning I was quoted at $1900 US and the rotora’s I was quoted at $2500 us on sale but that sale has ended.

      Listed below is the quote I received from Playground Tuning for their 6 pot rear big brake setup. I decided I did not want that "large" of a brake setup in the rear as it is almost the same as the front and might
      upset the brake balance too much. Plus, getting replacement pads for them from Singapore might be a hassle. I went with Rotora and paid the same price as the Playground quote, plus 4 piston rears and I
      think the pad replacement is much easier as Rotora is close and other pads (Carbotech) will fit the Rotora calipers. I realize that the Rotora price has gone up. Also, Rotora only does brakes and a lot of them,
      Playground is more of a tuning shop so I felt better with a full on brake manufacturer.

      Playground Tuning Quote for rears EPB for 19”:
      M6P 365*28mm = USD 2150
      M6P 380*28mm = USD 2260
      Upgrade to Floating rotors +USD 200


      A full set includes:
      - EPB Brake calipers * 2pcs
      - 2-pcs rotors * 2 pcs(optional for floating rotors)
      - Caliper mounting brackets * 2 pcs
      - Brake pads(street) * 1 set(4 pcs)(optional for sport pads)
      - Brake lines * 2 pcs


      Ps. The price above doesn’t include delivery fee and custom tax

      It seems playground tuning makes up prices. I know a few people who have asked for a price and all got different prices for the same setup.

      Playground tuning's kit runs APracing's CP5200 pads that I've already swapped in ferodo's DS2500 compound.
      This is the same pad footprint as Rotora's kit. But you know, 2 more pistons = massive brake torque right. I paid $2600 all-in for my kit with $400 shipping to New York and a $60 import charge.

      Rotora's kit is non starter for me; I don't cut structural components of my suspension.
      Our trailing arm's strength comes from the bends in the stamped steel and cutting the knuckle is asking for a bent suspension.

      Upgraded the rears to what the factory should have done. 355mm slotted rotors with 4 piston calipers with integrated EPB. This is the Rotora BBK. I highly recommend having a quality shop do the conversion.
      The stopping difference is quite impressive. No more front end diving when slamming on the brakes, the car just squats and makes a quick level straight stop. The car is way more balanced when making a sudden
      stop. Really like the symmetry now with the front brakes.

      My good buddy Puredrive07 helped me detail my car this weekend. He applied Adam's Polishes Ceramic Spray Coating, followed by Adam's Polishes Ceramic Boost.

      Noticed the one of the front bushings were pretty done. Swapped out the entire control arm today.
      Rest in peace little guy; I have not been kind to you.

      Here's what the old bushing looks like compared to the new one.

      Welcome to the forum! Happy to see those P* puddle lights are still available.
      I see a warm glow in the footwell and would like to suggest a swap to either these (cheaper but I found them to be a very tight fit)
      or
      Volvo part #1286317 (marked for 3500K bright white color)

      Cheers

      Can you show the roof wrap from a top view? I'm interested in seeing how you tied it in with the rear spoiler. Thanks!

      I installed a Rebel Blue start/stop button to match my exterior paint color! PS - It is also available in red.

      One of my buddies owns a customs shop in Buffalo, NY (The Lab NA) and installed hood vents on someone's black Polestar (I think an S60). Looks pretty good, just can't believe they cut holes in the hood! lol

      I washed mine last weekend and gave then interior a really nice cleaning last night. The Sonnax alcantara cleaner works beautifully on the seats and steering wheel. I highly recommend it for anyone looking to pull out stains or restore the "suede" feel of the material.

      Hopefully polishing it this weekend followed by a ceramic coating. Will post pics once that has been completed.

      Two more questions:

      First, how does the antenna remove? Is it attached with double sided tape or does the headliner need to come down?
      Second, what color is that wrap? I wanted gloss black but was talked into satin black as the gloss shows tons of imperfections and scratches easily. I don't mind the satin. He had an AMG 63 estate with a satin roof for me to see and it looked good.

      Thanks in advance!

      I just had my car expertly detailed by fellow Swedespeed member and Volvo aficionado, puredrive07. He coated my 2017 Rebel Blue S60 Polestar with Adams Polishes ceramic paint coating.

      In addition, I recently installed Maxton Design rocker panel side skirts. They are gloss black and made from ABS plastic. The carbon fiber front splitter is Volvo OEM, as are the rims from the 2018 Polestar models.

      Looks so hot! Link to the side skirts? Do they also make a front lower splitter like the OEM CF? If I was closer, I would have puredrive07 clean my engine bay!
