      Actually last month but received our "Made in Sweden" jet tags, "with love" from Thom who lives in the Netherlands. Added as key tags.

      That's for an S90. I don't see those listed under XC90.

      Have you confirmed that these will actually fit on the XC90? That would be pretty cool if they do.

      P.S. for S90 only, not really missing out on those tailpipes after all

      Looking at side by side pics doesn't look like will fit.

      I find these look even better! But angles might not match

      i dunno, the Dealership claims they think it will. I'm almost tempted to tell them go for it just to see it fail ....but honestly that is such an ugly looking exhaust tip for a non performance vehicle....lol

      Are you referring to the S90 or XC60 tip as "ugly" lol

      i'm referring to the optional "quad look" tips as ugly. The current exhaust on both S90 and XC90 look great and clean.

      I agree but if you want a "more sporty look" most go for the quad tips but there's so many diff. designs, ovals, round, square, etc. I guess I wouldn't mind something "different" from everyone else lol The Heico looks great too but not going to be modifying the bumper for it!

      100% - and it'll sound great too, but good luck on getting the alignment on them (coming from past experience owning Heico exhaust on XC60)


      The heico exhaust really is well made - i'd buy the DP or even the undercarriage replacements if it didn't actually also require cutting into the stock pipe. Totally not PnP

      there's a reason we have more mileage on the XC90 over the GLS550 and we got the GLS first

      Didn't do anything TO it, but spent a good while yesterday editing a whole lot of tags on lots of FLAC files and setting them up on a 32Gb USB for music. I have to say that although the sound quality is not awful via Bluetooth, the biggest difference reading USB FLAC files compared to Bluetooth/USB from the iphone is volume. I was always a little surprised that the volume of the B&W system was so low. Not that it's quiet, but when listening to my favourite pieces (alone) the volume control had to go way up. Like right to the top, which is loud but not ridiculously so. With FLAC files through the USB that same thumping volume is only a little over half-way.

      It's good to get things a bit organised, and particularly to shorten the length of track names (particularly classical) so that they fit on screen.

      Now all I need to do is go buy a bigger USB drive. Thinking 128Gb rather than 64...

      Me too! I'm a wagon person first and if the V90 existed last summer, I would have bought a V90 (non-CC) instead of the XC90. The V90 is gorgeous!

      If the urban styling kit has a skid plate/diffuser, then during install, the foot sensor gets moved toward the driver side wheel instead of the default "central" location under the L of the Volvo letters. Page 230 of the 2016 XC90 manual (pdf version).

      Let me know if your m3u files work! Mine only work halfway (some m3u files have all songs of an album, some have only some of the songs and some m3us don't even show up).

      Added mud guards tonight. Will post some pictures of it in the near future. After driving around for a few weeks, I realized these are a must-have accessory.

      By the time we picked up our OSD XC90 in mid Dec 2017, Sweden had already gone through a few snow storms. Thus, the road sand along with some cold, wet weather took a toll on our XC90 during our week of driving. When we dropped the car off, it was a mess. Then it began a three month journey to Hawaii with numerous stops in various port and shipyards baking under the hot sun awaiting the next vessel. When we finally picked up the XC90 earlier this week, it clearly had all the signs of a tired, well worn traveller that had lost its showroom lustre. The paint was rough to the touch and you could not see the surface of the inside of the wheels due to the caked-on dirt and grime. Nevertheless, it was home and could finally receive the care that it desperately needed. I spend the last two days (full 9 hour days), cleaning and detailing the XC90 to the best of my amateur abilities. I thoroughly washed the car and then "clayed" the entire car, including the wheels (inside and outside), to remove the "grit". Then I applied a sealant as well as cleaned and polished the trim and wheels. During the next few days, I'll tackle the interior. I also may apply Carnuba over the sealant...any advice on that approach??? Bottom line...I feel so good that the XC90 is home (and now clean) and I can give it the attention it deserves, not to mention driving it too! Here's the result so far...

      Dropped it off for a 5 day paint correction, detail and application of 3 layers of 22ple VX pro glass coating. Really excited to see how it looks when I pick it up on Thursday.

      Then had to get some good old dinosaur juice and parked next to an M5; and not the BMW type! I believe it's an M5A1 tank.

      At the same gas station the owner also has one of my dream trucks: a Unimog! (Among a bunch of other bad-a$$ machines)

      Drove ten hours from Northern California to Southern California, on the return leg of our Easter vacation. Great trip! The turtle light came on for five seconds once on a surface street, went off, and never came back again, thank god. Stuck in weekend SF and LA traffic jams (caused by two different accidents and hundreds of looky-loos) for more than an hour, and we survived with smiles, mostly because of the great seats and the fantastic stereo. The car is filthy, so guess what I am doing tomorrow..... that's right, trying to convince my wife to wash the car. (No, not really).

      Can anyone advise whether the R-Design T6 is "with" or "without" the body kit for the mudflaps?

      Well, I acquired one - and then drove it a bunch.

      Initial impressions? Pretty awesome. I'll post more later, but until then perhaps I can stump you guys with this configuration:
