      S/V60 Polestar Engineered strut tower bar on V90?

      Does anyone know if the strut tower spacing on the S/V60 and S/V90 are the same?

      I'm wondering if the Polestar Engineered strut tower bar that comes on the 2020 Polestar Engineered edition S/V60s would work on our V90.

      I doubt it but I'd love to get some facts on this as well. Been looking for a strut tower bar for the V90 for a while now and there's a couple of aftermarket options out there but the P.E would be a nice touch.

      The XC90/XC60 use the same strut tower bar, so it's likely the V60/V90 use the same bar.

      Are you noticing a lot of chassis flex during spirited driving? Everything seems fine to me.

      I've have a friend who's a mechanic at Volvo, I'll send him a message right away.

      Edit:
      He was not sure but since the *60 is 3cm narrower than the V90 he didn't think it would fit.

      A bit off-topic but still about Polestar Engineered.

      I believe S60 Polestar Engineered Ohlins strut can fit to S/V90 since KW-V3 use the same part number for S/V90 and S/V60.

      there is aftermarket strut brace the is listed to fit both S60/S90. I think Polestar brace should too.

      Anyone got a price tag on the Polestar brace?
