      Puredrive07's Build Thread: 2019 XC60 T6 AWD Inscription

      So last night we returned our 2016 XC60 T6(3.0) AWD Premier from it's lease for a 2019 XC60 T6 AWD Inscription. This is a massive upgrade when comparing the two XC60's to each feature content wise. We got excellent pricing and another wonderful experience at the dealer. I'm starting a build thread like I do with all my vehicles to keep track of what I've done to any issues I may have had for the community to reference.

      Last Vehicle
      2016 XC60 T6 AWD Premier
      -Osmium Grey/Charcoal
      -Sport Seats w/Charcoal Headliner
      -Front Heated Seats
      -19" Wheels
      -Black Piano Inlays
      -Protection Package

      Current Vehicle
      2019 XC60 T6 AWD Inscription
      -Crystal White Pearl/Charcoal
      -Advanced Pkg
      -Nappa Leather w/Massage and Cooled front seats
      -Sport Steering Wheel w/Charcoal Headliner
      -Heated Wheel and Rear seats
      -20" Wheels
      -Protection Package

      So far I have Ceramic Coated the entire exterior of the vehicle and looking to add the mudflaps soon.

      Driving impressions to come when I actually spend more time behind the wheel, but so far so good and I love the new Harmon Kardon Sound System.

      It's beautiful - Good luck with it! How do like the larger and improved display/driver interface and all the new technology compared to your previous XC60?

      Thanks! This XC60 is a huge upgrade over the last generation in almost every aspect; I guess some could argue the engine's not being 5 or 6 cylinders, but I'm quite happy with the new 2.0L T6 engine. The Tech is obviously a large step forward from the P3 XC60 (which not terrible, it worked and was stable, but lacked newer stuff like Touchscreen, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, larger screen, etc). Being that this is a 2019, I noticed the boot up time and screen response is much quicker than in previous SPA models I've driven from 2016-2018MY. This is due to the newer, faster processor.

      Have to agree that while the 2.0 ST is adequate in power the harmonics of the 5 cylinder is far more entertaining and enthusiastic. I'll miss this mill.

      Yea the 5cyl definitely had a unique sound and it was especially nice sounding in my 2007 S60R with modifications and our 2013 S60 T5 AWD was always a pleasure to drive when we had it. Though my 3.0L T6 with an exhaust is wonderful to listen to.

      Did you apply the ceramic coating yourself or have it done professionally? If you had it done professionally, how much did it cost?

      I do detailing as a side business and applied it myself. There are many different types of Ceramic Coatings so the pricing could range. The one I applied is from Hydrosilex and it's a spray on Ceramic Coating which if you can apply detail spray you can apply it yourself. I do suggest you correct your paint from paint swirls/defects.

      I picked up MY19 T6 yesterday as well. Congrats! I have a few plans myself.

      Agenda: Thinkware dashcam, rain deflectors, and OEM hitch install.

      Nice. When I get my next XC60, I’ll hit you up for the same treatment. Congratulations

      Congrats on the new purchase! I love that color combo, and really had hoped they have a Crystal White/Maroon Brown combo when we first started looking, but my wife really wanted Charcoal. I wish I could have convinced her to want the Polestar tune, but it's really not necessary for her driving habits, but it would have been nice to have; we looked at 2 T6 R-Design models that both had it and I was pushing my wife towards the RD trim, but she didn't like/trust herself with the Nubuck seats.

      Sounds good! As soon as you purchase it hit me up, better to get it on the vehicle as soon as possible.

      I really do not understand that suede or whatever that fabric thats on the seats.....I would think it would stain very easy. 1 can always get the polestar added on later....or just do not tell her,lol

      Thanks! I don't think you would regret the tune. I had it put on the XC90 and didn't tell my wife I was going to have it done while she was away on business.

      She noticed right away and never changes from Comfort if that tells you anything. It feels a little different in the XC60 but the throttle response and mid range is something to experience. I'm looking for a place to have ceramic done locally and looking forward to what your plans are.

      I just corrected a horrible job the dealer did put on some kind of protective coating on a SS members (Rumyn) 2018 XC60 T5 Inscription. Now he's got a beautifully ceramic Coated vehicle. You should look into getting CarPro's C.Quartz Ceramic Coating on your vehicle; it lasts a couple of years on the vehicle. I applied it to a 2018 BMW M3 a month ago and it's amazing stuff.

      It's a "Sport Thing" adding the Suede to the seats, and if it were me I'd live with it because I want the R-Design trim line. The stuff Volvo uses is Synthetic material so it holds up very well and doesn't really stain, but I know a few people that have newer RD's with the Nubuck and their only complaint is lint/dust tends to stick to it and becomes noticeable if you don't regularly vacuum the seat. I won't be sneaking the Polestar tune passed her, kind of hard to hide a $1400 charge Like I said, she doesn't need it, nor cares about it for her driving habits; I just throw it in Dynamic when I drive it to have a little bit of fun, lol!

      You're welcome! Glad I could fix their mistake, I really have no idea what they thought they were putting on the paint or if they even knew how to properly apply it.
