      Nice. I tried to find some snow in the surroundings yesterday and managed to find 0.5 cm nearby. I put together this small film. Or to be honest, Google Photos did it for me, including the annoying music. Should be possible to play without any extra plugins from any browser/phone: https://goo.gl/photos/ZWUdFhbxrDNPRHUJ9

      Should have washed the car first, although at this time a year it does not last long.

      Nice video...

      Think its time to start "tuning" with V O L V O stuff... 18", side scuff, mud flaps, wing design roofrails, rubber mats cabin and cargo, roof spoiler, stealth orange blinkers,... And so on. Car deserves it. Expensive I know. You will love it. Be different, with volvo original stuff it maintains his classic look!

      Sticker wouldnt hurt either... Aaah what the heck... Go for it.

      Hehe - but you are right! I came to a point where I tried to act with a certain rationale and money wise I prioritized the detachable towbar. Cannot believe I am the kind of guy who would actually spend money on such things as side scuffs, mud flaps and wing. But when I now see how much I like the car and I see other cars with that stuff, I realize I would like to have it myself. Let's see how the honey moon continues. Might end up with it one day.

      18" summer tires I already have as well as rubber mats cabin and cargo. Rubber mats are standard for all cars because it gets so dirty during winter. Actually the opposite (carpet mats) is often not standard for many cars. People drive around in their Mercedes and BMW with rubber mats all year round. I remembered to get the cargo mat included in the offer, absolutely needed. Stealth blinkers...hummm...not really sure if that is my style, though? Got any pictures of that?

      Perhaps >14 has it already:

      (Trust me, being from Northern Europe I also hate tuning... Very!!!)
      But looking at what V O L V O has to offer it feels good... No 'boogy down Bronx' stuff with gold and but classic looking with all the things they offer.

      Yeah, true. Those rear blinkers are not orange. Thought you ment front and mirror blinkers.

      But moose stickers are by law only allowed for tourists in my country.

      I don't consider it "tuning" if it comes from the Volvo accessory catalog, but that does have it's limits. Certain pieces are cool (imho), some are functional, others are trivial and unnecessary. Choose wisely!

      Thanks T5 for Life... Always positive...

      Only thing I did 'outside the box' was the moose sticker and the black V O L V O in the grill. Couldnt resist.

      Ooops and tomorrow the 2014 rear skid plate on the 2011...looks a bit tougher although it's feather-light! €120 eBay... Will send pics.

      Only thing missing is the net with the 2-poles and the rubber mat in the cargo. Rest I have, including the cushion. Dont have the 2016 model but maybe in 2 years or maybe go straight for the V90CC. Or maybe go for the V90CC Facelift... Sure they will keep us wanting the latest every year... They always win!

      Is 2015.5 last model year for XC70?

      Hello Tony,

      T5 for life? Thinking about Pstarring the D5. What worries me is the handling and shifting in the low RPM range. I am a very slow driver in general. Dont want it to become a nervous wreck. You know anybody, experiences after the tuning? I dont want it to drive like it does in S-mode in the city.

      Anybody else? Is there a thread with "after tuning experience"?

      Don't know which engine you have but I bought a 2015.5 last July, T6 AWD. Had the Polestar tune put on it last Sept. and wow, really wakes up the car. The difference is like night and day. Pulls like a freight train and shifts are much quicker. You will like it.

      Same here...same like everybody. 1830 Göteborg time...Cant wait...poor S80 owners, overnight in an old S80 (Just kidding)
      I will be next with the V90CC, will make mine look outdated. But you know what, a classic remains a classic.

      Hehe...
      My boss is driving an old XC70 (2002 I think). He is now asking regularly about mine and if I like it. I keep saying I am looking forward to every small ride.

      Think he wants to buy one of the last ones, perhaps when they are 6-12 months old. Probably good value for money.

      (Inscription?? Dont know)

      Anybody can help me on finding/ordering these
      C L A S S I C decal letters. Looks like only Finland has this "bussiness" edition. Yes it fills up with letters but its still standard VOLVO! Anybody? If not I'll start a thread.







      Update:

      Called with Finland; part number

      3 0 6 2 1 8 4 5

      How do you know HENIRC, there are many of these new badges? I think you are right and I said the same but I cant read it to tell the truth.

      Yes its a good time to order a 2015.5 XC70 with the V90CC coming soon... But shall we save our money and go for the V90CC?? Think so yes!

      HELP!! What to do??

      (Still in love with the XC70 CLASSIC, just ordered the badge )

      Here is an example of a close-up. Even if the picture resolution from the white D4 is low, you can clearly see the D in the black AWD part of the emblem.

      You are right!! True...

      Also I have noticed that those 2 badges are not completely aligned, there is a 'height difference'. True? Touched a few -16 XC90's and could feel it... On purpose, it must be??!! Could be an error... Here its not noticeable:

      Yes got it done! Amazing... Like a new car, well, different to say the least. Engine communicates better with the gear box. Nothing but kind words for Polestar. Xmas gift from me to me. And damn its fast (for a black Diesel brick)
      0-100KM/h in 8.8 seconds, good enough for the family they said.

      Fuelburn went down drastically... See my response in offic. P* thread. Had a great opportunity for checking it. 1500km without -and 1500km with P*!

      €750 total cost plus 30min looking at every possible VOLVO in the showroom. Holland being NorthernEurope realy is a VOLVO country. Small example, saw the Carbon V40 edition, only 343 made. Standard with Polestar. Saw more... Nice!

      Glad you like !

      Word to the wise...the Official P* thread is for the Polestar S/V60 only....I got my a$$ reamed for asking if those of us with P* optimizaton could or should be posting in there. Tread lightly.
