      I am the proud new owner of a 2020 V60 T5

      Hi all I had posted this topic last week after test driving an S60 https://forums.swedespeed.com/showth...some-questions but after I went back to take another look at it I also had a look at a dealer loaner V60 they had on the lot and I ended up buying that today! Since it had a few thousand miles on it already and was being sold as new I got a great deal.

      Its a T5 Momentum in Crystal White with the Advanced Package with the 19" wheels. Since it was a dealer car it also has the navigation but not the upgraded sound system. Its been rainy here but as soon as it dries out I am going to take it on a proper drive to get a better feel for it. I've been dreaming about this car as soon as I watched the new V60 launch a few years ago and I almost can't believe that I actually have one in my driveway.

      Honestly pretty amazing considering I bought it at 24% off its MSRP. If you hate new cars then I think you're in the wrong forum my dude.

      I think you mean %24 under MSRP and if you got it for 24% I’m talking you shopping with me next time LOl.

      Any plans on moding it?

      Hahaha yeah 24% under MSRP, since it had a few thousand miles on it being a dealer loaner + Volvo loyalty bonus + costco member bonus + negotiating left me with a deal I did honestly not expect them to agree to.

      No current plans to mod it other than the Polestar tune and tint the windows. I got all of my tuner stuff out of me with my C30 I think

      Bro, I said I hope you did. Used cars far outnumber new cars here by far Mr. 6 posts. Probably since they don`t sell, 24% off MSRP is normal MSRP. Don`t get me wrong I like these cars a lot, and yours is really nice. Enjoy it for 3 years and sell it to me for 50% off what you paid for it.

      Its the blonde leather

      I was a little weary of the blonde over the charcoal but my C30 had that same color and the seats in that thing had no issues with discoloring or staining and I hope these do the same

      My wife's XC90 has the blonde interior and after 3yrs of now-almost-4-yr-old twins riding around in the back we've had no issues. The drivers seat gets some blue discoloring from jeans, but it easily comes out with some leather wipes.

      We've had this, or at least an older version, in our V70 for 19+ years and it still looks nice. Not new, but patinated and nice. We're getting the same for our new XC60 (I wanted the City Weave but my wife really wanted the 4-way lumbar from the Inscription seats and the blonde is still beautiful.)

      Congrats.

      In the SPA platform, the blonde interior + pano moonroof makes the interior very airy.

      Just don`t get pissed at a GF or wife`s new blue jeans transferring blue, it will. I wouldn`t recommend asking her to clean them or you`ll be driving by yourself. That color looks nice but is definitely finicky. I have it too.

      I have a microfibre cloth in my car to protect the area which picks up the blue when I am wearing jeans. The best cleaner is the bottle of leather cleaner Jaguar gave me with my cars. Gets the blue off well.

      I've had good luck using Mother's leather conditioner on a soft old cloth to remove any denim discoloration in several cars with lighter interiors over the years. It's also kept the seats soft and cut down on the wrinkling.

      Anything not colorfast will transfer to the leather. I bought some cheap Chinese brand running gear in black and it transferred to the leather. Be wary of what you wear.

      Thanks for the kind words everyone, after a week of driving I am absolutely loving it. I think as far as mods go I still think the only thing ill do is Polestar optimization at some point over the next year, tint the windows, and probably the Polestar tower strut bar. The power delivery from the T5 is very smooth and it is surprisingly faster than I was anticipating. I feel like I've driven cars with a good bit more HP that felt slower than my V60.

      I think the only complaint I have is the standard audio system as opposed to the HK set up. I felt like the Bose system in my old C30 sounded as good if not better.

      I agree, the night of picking up mine I got the first opportunity to give it a boot, entering a freeway from a set of lights, two lanes merging to one on a newly wet road. The AWD with the new 235 rubber just gripped and off it went.

      No issues stealing gaps in traffic when necessary.

      I found that a mid-throttle is really nice with the gearbox keeping the waves of torque coming and a continuous pushing in the back. All very civilised that way!

      Proud new owner of 2020 V60 T5

      Enjoy your new car and great seeing pride of ownership. Purchasing new vehicles is largely an emotional decision and not an economic one—everyone knows this and the best part of the forums is sharing your joy and excitement and pride. Others who choose to attempt to diminish that don’t have any idea of your particular set of circumstances or the hard work you might have put in to be able to afford such a “new” car.
      Have fun and if it makes you smile every time you drive it, all the better.

      I have the 2020 V60CC. Absolutely love it! Awesome acceleration and tight steering and responsive cornering. I had the dealer add the Polestar as the final point in negotiating. It makes a difference. My only complaint is the fuel economy isn’t close to that of my previous S90, but I suppose that’s to be expected of an AWD. Congrats.

      Our V60 is red w/ black leather.
      Very sharp in white w the blond.
      We've got 75000 trouble free miles on ours so far.
      Best of luck w the new ride. Very nice & sounds like a reasonable transaction.
