      Red face My V90 - it's here!

      Just collected the V yesterday. Haven't really driven it. But parallel parking's quite a task! Cos I haven't gotten round to reading/experiment with Park Pilot yet.

      Here are some pics:

      Something new... something departing.



      Face/Off.



      One angle...



      And the other!



      So, who won the staring game?

      Congrats on the upgrade, but man that V40 looked amazing. Are you going to be modifying the V90 as well?

      Yeah, will be sad to see her gone. But oh well, gotta cater to the family's needs.

      Probably just springs and spacers, for the upcoming CH-Rs, that's about it.

      [QUOTE=axl886;6010705]Here's her with Eibach spacers and springs, with the new shoes.

      How much lower is the car now or - Can you show profile shot before and after?

      Where did you get the spacers from? I wonder if they fit for v90 CC?

      Btw - really think that blue looks great!

      Wheels look okay, I feel like they need a shot of body color or contrast color to really pull it together.

      How's it drive on those? Aren't they significantly lighter than the Volvo wheels?

      Bit late to the party but V40 ... never heard of, I thought it was the V60. Just different nomenclature in Singapore?

      Volvo never brought the V40 to North America. Europe and Asia only. It was an awesome looking car. I've heard there next gen V40 will make the trip here.......

      20mm drop all-round. From an Ebay vendor from Germany. Not sure but you can check via the configurator on eibach.de

      Thanks man. 😊

      CI-Rs only go up to 19", and locally there were stock for matt black or silver CH-R only. And it bugs me that the rim protector is chrome even for the black rims.

      300+g lighter per rim. Can't feel any difference, truth be told... hah.

      Thanks Chris!

      Oh, happy to report that there weren't any problems with the iTPMS, other than the usual re - calibration procedure, and there wasn't excessive noise with the 20" tyres too.

      I'm curious if dealers there stock V90s, unlike here where they have to be special ordered.

      Most local Volvos are brought in ex-stock, which are already specced by the sole disti here (see: http://i.i-sgcm.com/new_cars/cars/11...0623034029.pdf) but you can custom-order for an additional fee, and longer lead-time of cos.

      After a week of driving it extensively, the conclusion is: I LOVE IT!!

      The ride is plush and miles ahead, compared to my previous rides*... even with the Eibach. I can only imagine how it is even more comfy with the stock setup. Oh well, you can't have your cake and eat it too I guess. Been using ACC and Pilot Assist on the daily drive to work, works like a charm and even though there were a couple of semi-hairy moments for PA when it swerves a bit near to the adjacent traffic, it indeed make the commute more relaxing. Granted it's only like 20km one way.

      Couple of comments: there's an option to customize the dash display when "Individual" mode is chosen. But when I choose Individual, the digital display doesn't change and remains the same? Is this some sorta bug or am I missing something here?

      The T6 is powerful, and I haven't even WOT yet. But overtaking and traffic merges are a breeze even as of now. That said, I wish Volvo had tweaked the engine note to something more interesting. Right now, it sounds dull and dare I say, maybe a little bit agricultural?

      Cheers.

      Best I can tell, Dynamic and Comfort are identical. Maybe there's a difference for T8 people?

      Eco is the only one that seems to change anything.

      Thanks for your reply Matt. It's a small thing I guess...

      Another bunch of questions about ACC/PA2:

      1) Do the brake lights light up when a car moves in front of the Volvo? I'm assuming yes? Haha.

      2) Been playing around in Eco, quite cool to see the "coasting" function when it comes on. But so far, it seems coasting can't be enabled when ACC/PA2 is activated?

      3) For PA2, assuming I'm doing 110kph on the highway, and there's no cars in sight. If an upcoming bend can only be safely taken at 70kph, will the system be smart enough to reduce speed accordingly to negotiate the bend safely?

      Cheers.

      PS: For NA cars, is the selection of downloadable apps vast or limited? We have a pathetic 8 apps here only.. and only TuneIn and Spotify are remotely interesting.
