      Ordered a V60 PE...now we wait

      Finally bit the bullet and put down the deposit for a V60 Polestar Engineered in Osmium Grey. I kept going back and forth on ordering it now, or waiting to see if the regular V60 T8 or V90 T8 would be coming to the US. Truth be told, I'd prefer the regular versions because I don't really need the Ohlins suspension or the B&W sound system or the big Brembos (though I do like the gold seat belts), and I'd actually prefer the bigger V90 to the smaller V60 and Bursting Blue to Osmium Grey. Nonetheless, I'm super excited. Got a good deal on it to boot (5% off MSRP + $2000 dealer allowance + $1000 affiliate incentive for being a PenFed member). Now's the hard part; waiting 4-5 moths for it to arrive...

      Edited: One interesting thing to note; when ordering a car through Volvo, you get to either choose the incentives available at time of order, or the incentives available at time of delivery. In my case, the incentives at time of delivery was actually an additional $6000 more than the incentives at time of order (thanks COVID, I guess). That "good deal" of 5% off MSRP + $3000 in discounts ballooned to an "insane deal" of 5% off MSRP + $9000 in discounts.

      Congrats. I almost pulled the trigger on one, still debating.

      The center console's lack of storage space was my issue with the interior. Volvo should have been able to design a solution instead of making it just deep enough to store your phone.

      Yeah, that is annoying, though since I'm coming from a 500 Abarth with no center console and very little storage space, I probably won't be annoyed as much .

      This was also my concern but I could live with it, what made it a no go for me is the seats. I want my cooled seats and this is not possible.

      Congrats! I have the same car on order aswell. I feel you on the color, I'd rather have blue - settled on Osmium Grey. I think you will be happy with the 60, it is more fun to drive than the larger 90!

      I placed the order on the 19th of December. And they estimated march/april. The dealer called me up this week and confirmed last week of march.

      Yes, it works. Nice to see how it is wrapped for shipping. Looks great in black. Congrats!

      Nice!
      I ordered black as well although I didn’t spec the sun roof.

      Just been told my delivery has slipped to April (I ordered in nov) so living vicariously though other people 🙂

      Hope you enjoy it.

      Thanks! Got more pics. Issue now is since i'm in Canada (45 min north of the NY border) I really need winters and Volvo isn't offering any winter tire/rim packages for the vehicle. Its too new. Trying to negotiate with them to get me another set of polestar rims. Worried that I'll order aftermarket alloys and they won't clear the calipers.

      Yes, my dealer specified the regular winter wheel set for my car. When signing the contract I asked to see what design, they discovered it wont fit - so the dealer will give me another polestar wheel set. They take the extra cost over the regular alloy set (~3k with Nokian r3). Need winter tyres for half the year here in Norway, just like Canada.

      My plan is to put on a set of 15mm wheel spacers to push the wheels out far enough to clear the calipers:
      https://www.evasivemotorsports.com/s...2x15-bore-633/
      https://www.rallysportdirect.com/par...kit-15mm-5x108

      Another option would be to install a set of 5x108 -> 5x114.3 adapters that are also 15mm thick. Benefit would be that there are way more 5x114.3 wheels to choose from.
      https://www.rallysportdirect.com/par...adapters-black

      Fun fact: the Focus ST and RS also have 5x108 bolt patterns, so there's quite a market for spacers/adapters available.

      Yeah...given that it's been over a month and my dealer still doesn't have a confirmation for the order, I suspect that at best I'll be forced to wait until the fall for a 2021 model, and at worse Volvo will decide not to offer a 2021 model in the US and I'll wind up getting something else.

      Good luck. I know I had to constantly follow up with my dealer then I finally got the last V60 headed to Canada.

      Congratulations on the PE order! Have you considered custom wheels instead of spacers and adapters? Most of the good custom wheel makers will be able to drill the center disc for 5x108, with several offset options. I've done this over the years with 2pc or 3pc HRE wheels and Work Wheels. A nice set of HRE's will look amazing on the V60 PE.

      Took delivery of ours in Late December. It has been great. Got our MPG up to 44mpg with daily plug in, but it started out with an 1200 interstate drive home so it has been working its way up from 30mpg. Any questions fire away

      Million dollar question: when did you place the order?

      I know for Canada, when I ordered in the fall I was the last one for the 2020 model year. I'd imagine they'll start the deposits for 2021 anytime now.

      Shhh- I got my eye on one of them! Trying to figure out how to do a pull ahead on my XC90 out of state. Dealers don't seem interested in doing a locate on these models. Ideally I'd like to work with Volvo NA to get them to intervene and let the dealers split the sale.

      Has anyone had experience having a car shipped cross-country from a dealership? If it's not prohibitively expensive maybe I'll just do that for one of the white ones rather than wait for an allocation to pop up.

      You should definitely not get one from the Mid-Atlantic area.

      Just doing this, enclosed trailer was ~$1,900 VA to CA, open trailer was quite a bit cheaper. PM for details.

      Wife said I could buy one, but I’d have to sell two cars. Would be funny if I took her up on it and sold my two college kids’ cars.

      All kidding aside, as nice as it is, I can’t justify the loss on my V90 and 19 Suburban to get the Polestar wagon. And besides, my wagon is a very good car. Extremely comfortable.

      Wouldn’t mind it though - especially in Crystal White.
