First post on Swedespeed... I just purchased a CPO 2016 S60 T5i. Great car, low miles, perfect for a a family of 4. It's my first ever Volvo and so far I am very impressed. I was hopeful that I could get a Polestar upgrade but when I ran the VIN, it came back as unavailable. I am looking for some HP gains and maybe a rear sway bar upgrade.

My question is this: Are there any upgrades (polestar, etc.) that work for the Inscription? It seems like there should be something out there. I have tried to look through old posts and I have found nothing specific to the Inscription model. I apologize if this is a repost.

Thanks in advance for any help or recommendations.

Since you likely have the same engine as the non-inscription models, I find it strange that nothing comes out of Polestar.
Maybe ask directly to your dealer ?

Thanks for the reply. I will call the dealer directly. When I was looking at the available cars that were eligible for the P* upgrade, only the Drive-E 4's were listed. There was nothing available for the 2.5L I5 that I have in my car.

We're in the same boat. My understanding is that P* upgrades aren't available for the 5-cyl which, in the US (N.America? beyond?), was coupled with the 6-speed AT and AWD. Were your car FWD or a 2017, you'd have the 4-cyl, 8-speed AT and P* upgrade options.

Should be no problem installing the rear anti-sway bar. Ours made a noticeable difference.

Great choice by the way. We'd love to have that extra 3" of back seat room in our V60.

Yea the P3 5cyl T5 motor never got the Polestar tune. You are limited to RICA tune or TDi Box.

Doesn't Hilton tune P3's? People love his tunes on other Volvo platforms.

The extra room in the back is what sold us. I love the look of the V60 CC. If it wasn't for the extra leg room, we would be driving one of those right now.

Yes try Viva. e-mail them as I don't think it's posted on their web site.

I have the Rica myself. Just did stage II a few days ago. Haven't driven car much to see what difference from stage I yet. Stage I was noticeable for sure!
