Awesome thanks for the infoIf you've done brakes, then you'll have no problem. Rears are only complicated if you don't know what to do about the EPB, but it's simple enough to do without a scan tool if necessary.
Many posts on here. Do a quick search and you'll get all the information you need. If you need videos, there are a few on YouTube as well. Remember that all P3's are pretty equal, so videos for XC70's etc. will be the same.
For some Volvos perhaps, but the pads I pulled off my 2012 S60 were stamped with the Volvo logo and a TRW logo. So TRW is the OEM for the S60 - at least in the US. That said, I'll agree that Textar makes perfectly good pads.Last time, I got Textar branded pads. They are OEM for various manufacturers, including Volvo.
Get cheap brake pads. Cheap pads often have high initial bite to make them feel stronger in normal driving.I get to rent multiple cars per month during training for my work, so I got to try multiple different types of cars and they all kinda had a brake bite even with a gentle touch of the brake pedal, that I don't have on my 2015.5 S60, Any way to make my S60 Soft brake feel into a harder braking power from a gentle touch of the brake pedal?
Oh I see thank you for your feedback, I think I will get Akebono pads next time I get to change the pads. and Yes I want to keep the smooth gradual feeling since you guys mentioned it's better.Get cheap brake pads.

The downside is that high initial bite makes it more difficult to modulate the brakes and can make them feel grabby in panic situations. Most higher end street pads have a more progressive feel but actually hold up better at high temps and will provide more stopping power overall with the added bonus of being easily to modulate for smooth driving with less chance of triggering immediate lockup in panic situations.
