      2.0 Drive-E Polestar Tune Worth the Cost?

      I have a 2015.5 V60 which I will be dropping off for warranty work, an oil change and an alignment. I am wondering what people's experiences have been with the Polestar tune on the 2.0 Drive-E motor? Is the juice worth the squeeze? From what I have read, the tune is essentially a transmission optimization more than a tune. Additionally, the car is at 60,000 miles, should I have the transmission flushed?

      should run a search for polestar, gets excellent reviews, probably a couple threads a month asking if its worth it filled with great reviews, and probably another 1 or 2 a month about why did i wait to polestar

      As noted above there are several, like this one I commented on a while back. My experience was that the upgrade on the Drive-E provided a noticeable bump in mid-range torque and 'driveability', its not a 'like driving a different car' change but I was happy enough with the upgrade to keep it. I believe there's a money-back guarantee so if you really don't like it you're only out the installation cost which is probably 1 hour of labor.
