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

      Damn I wish we could get front side windows tinted here in Germany, sadly it is one of the things that the cops won't let you get away with

      Gave mine the first wash 1600kms after getting it coated with 3 layers of 22ple. Incredible how easy it is to clean and the beading is nuts!

      Would post pictures but it just won't work straight to swedespeed... might move some over to Flickr and share a link if I can remember my password

      I think the entire mobile site is broken. I can't navigate to another page without the tab crashing! I just go on the desktop version from my phone and go from there.

      yeah you cut a shape and put it over. Looks great - but i LOVE the fully clear look. When i was in Germany i saw it everywhere. It's so silly that the amber in US is based off of an antiquated rule.

      Just like matrix laser headlights are not allowed....

      I just noticed most of you have flared out wheel arches (the trim part). Mine are flush with the body. I wonder if that is a T6 thing or a Inscription option...

      I know that it is part of the RDesign package, so im guessing trim level is more important than engine choice.

      It's required and comes with vehicles equipped with 275 tires.

      Thanks for the link and info. I did buy 20" rims from the dealer for summer and he never mentioned this. Best I find online is 180$ US, ouch, at least they come painted...

      As to not do detract the thread let me add what I did to my XC90 beside installing Invisihitch. This week I buffed it with a compound and installed CQuarts UK everywhere including my summer rims. I didn't swap my rims yet which is why I didn't take any pics.

      Wait, you found the fender flare painted? Where? I just tried to get it replaced at Volvo Don Beyer and they convinced me they could clean up some blemishes with Clear touch up. Obviously that didn't work.

      I'm just going to what Volvo says in the link. "...the new fender extension is painted the same colour as the car..."

      They have different part number per color for the trim.

      We picked up my wife's 2017 R-Design T6 today. Drove it straight to a detailer to get Opti-coat Pro+, Xpel, and Opti-guard leather put on. I'll post pictures when we get it back on Monday

      Please ELI5 - what is Opti Coat? Is it like a nano or ceramic treatment to the finish?

      That's my understanding, but the more hardcore enthusiasts on here could probably answer with more detail - this is my first "respectable" car. http://opticoat.com/page/opti-coat-pro-plus

      Though to be fair, it does seem to make a difference.

      Took the T8r to Disneyland, got choice/ground floor parking (hate dealing with the elevators), cheap plug-in time ($3 for 10+hrs plugged in) and an edge spot! Luckily, the cord was just long enough! Don't normally spend more than a few hours here at a time. Today was a special day here, my two youngests turned 3, so we stayed for the Main Street Electrical Parade!

      This warrants its own thread if they make an aftermarket solution work. Let us know.

      Installed the map update without any issues, thanks to the sticky in this forum and our fellow SS'rs. Later today will be soccer games. Hopefully it will dry out so I can give the XC90 its first wash later this week.

      I traveled to the Springs because Bob Penkhus (Ben Gallentine) made the price right on a custom-ordered T8 Inscription via the Costco auto program - unfortunately I did the Xpel/Opti back in TX. But you could always give Ben a call to see if he has a local suggestion: 719.505.3965

      Good luck!

      No. Same exterior color but I don't have running boards installed. This is mine on roadtrips to Highway 1 and Marfa:

      Nice muddy pics!

      While my "adventure" is not nearly as exciting, on Saturday, I brought home 10 pieces of pressure treated 2x4s (8' long). They fit perfectly down the center of the car. FYI - In a T6, you can fit two pieces of 2x4 side by side on top of the center console and 8' lengths fit perfectly fore/aft. There is just enough room to use the gear shifter. You just have to be careful your lumber load does not shift forward and accidentally knock your shifter (did not happen to me, but I saw it as a risk).

      Then on Sunday, we went to Ikea and fit a 40" vanity cabinet, countertop, sink and some other stuff in the back without having to impinge into second row space.

      In previous runs, we found you can fit 4'x32" pieces of plywood in the back as well (one 4'x8' piece of plywood cut into three equal pieces) without needing to drop the second row and those fit perfectly fore/aft.

      Thumbs up for cargo usability!
      2016 XC90 T6 Momentum+ | Vision Package | Polestar | Crystal White Metallic/Charcoal interior (light beige headliner) - first Volvo and loving it!
      3M Driver/Passenger tint, clear paint protection film (full hood + front), Weather Tech mats (all 3 rows), OEM: 3 piece cargo tray, tow hitch, rear bumper strip, mud flaps, low profile roof rack

      I had some CQuartz UK left so I decided to test it inside the car. I did the wood trim on the doors/dash so my kids don't scratch it. Metal trim door/dash for fun. The best was the black piano trim around the Sensus screen, steering buttons and around start switch.

      Around the Sensus screen was the best improvement. It removed the small spiderwebs I could see in the plastic since new when the sun hits it. All gone now. I also did the screen itself. This is the only one to be careful for as I had to rub allot more than usual with the microfiber to make it smooth again.

      Dropped it off at the dealership for its first oil change service, the new Sensus update and PA2 upgrade, along with a couple recalls. They still have it and I get to try out a new V60 loaner. I have a soft spot for wagons! My VOC app now shows the remote start option but still no battery level. Hopefully it gets sorted when I pick it up tomorrow!

      What did you do TO or IN your SPA 2016+ XC90 today?

      This week, I picked up my car from service with new Sensus update, remote start for T8 (US), 22" 6-spoke summer wheels and tires, and 3M Crystalline tint (50%) all around (except windshield and sunroof). A couple of TJ's, including front suspension, were done.

      Life is good; car is a charm - almost 16 months and 14000 miles. My total (premium/93 oct.) fuel bill was $1055 (394 gal.) and total electric bill was $300. All of this includes towing a uHaul trailer for 8 hours.
