    Smile Polestar performance upgrade

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Folks, just found out that there is a Polestar software update available for the XC90 which improves performance, details at:

    https://www.polestar.com/us/product/...omatic-2016-2/

    Dealer list price is $1290 (plus tax if applicable), before any discount that you can negotiate with your dealer. Note that any Volvo dealer has access to the update, not just "Polestar approved" dealers.
    2016 XC90 R-Design, Passion Red, Polestar+. 22" rims, carbon fiber trim, B&W audio + CD, air suspension, convenience, climate + HUD, vision. OSD 4/4/16, picked up from dealer 6/9/16.

    Finally picked up car from dealer today, with Polestar installed. Haven't had a chance to really test it yet but the gear changes do seem crisper than I remember from when we driving it around in Europe. Will test some more on quieter back roads...

    Appreciate you reporting on your Polestar experience with us. Would you please let us know if it seems to improve the rough idling of the T6? Thanks.

    I am not experiencing rough idling and don't remember experiencing it before the upgrade.

    I had Polestar installed on my 2016 XC90 T6 last week, I have noticed gear switching speed is faster even in Comfort mode. Also notice slightly more power increase, and faster acceleration.
