Hi guys,

Any of you around the globe with a Drive-E T5 engine with engine code B4204T11, have done the Polestar Optimization to 253 hp / 400 Nm ?

Not looking at the figures which looks insignificant on the horses, any feedback on the driving dynamics/response? Have heard from the Dealer that they tried the *Test Car* and the Mid-High Range has improved tremendously as there is more Pull. Will be anyone be able to verify this?

Am from Singapore, and dealer are still working out Documents to clear through with the authority before it can be officially launched.

Lancert, seems you're not in the US - where are you located? I wasn't aware the gasoline powered T5 Drive-E had a Polestar tune available yet.

It is not, yet, available in the U.S.

They have a glitch in their site. DON'T click on the pictures. You have to select "or choose your model". Select your vehicle, it then takes you to a list of all the supported engine configurations for that model.

For example, my T5 Drive-E XC60 can get polestar. Below is the list I see when I select the XC60 from the drop down. I can select each of them and it brings me to the specifics of that vehicle.

Then what the heck was the list below that I found on the polestar website just a few days ago?

Below is a post I made in a different thread. Note, using my own instructions below, this list no longer appears. Was this a technical glitch on the part of Polestar's website?



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

They have a glitch in their site. DON'T click on the pictures. You have to select "or choose your model". Select your vehicle, it then takes you to a list of all the supported engine configurations for that model.

For example, my T5 Drive-E XC60 can get polestar. Below is the list I see when I select the XC60 from the drop down. I can select each of them and it brings me to the specifics of that vehicle.
This info must be from the global site, not for the U.S.

I am from Singapore, and in the polestar website, theres a option for you to key in your VIN number to check specifically which optimization for solely for your beloved ride!

Here in Australia the Polestar optimisations have been available for the Drive-E T5 (and D4 diesel) for 2-3 months now. Not aware from the various forums about anyone getting for the S60 or V60 T5s. However there a number who have had the Polestar tune done to their V40 T5 and V40CC T5 AWD. The overall net impact is not that impressive - for the V40 T5s the 0-100km/h (0-62mph) is reduced by only 0.1 sec. However they reported back that as per the PR blurb about these tunes the real benefit is in the mid-range particularly for overtaking. Here in Australia they are expensive (~AU$1,250) but a few have managed to negotiate on this price as part of the car purchase.

I appreciate many may say its unrelated to the Drive-E T5, but one guy did some before and after timing tests on a V40 Drive-E D4. I wont bore you with the details but the two main results of the test were :-
1. pretty much confirmed the net improvement in the 0-62 mph sprint was about 0.1 sec.
2. there was a 10%-15% improvement in the 40mph to 70mph rolling acceleration time - very useful for overtaking.

As I say might not be directly applicable to the Drive-E T5 but it does give a feel for what the Polestar tunes will do for the Drive-E engines.

thank you for your input bro,

to be frank and objective, actually its not about the century sprint timing mainly as we dont do it all the time, but its more on the power in the mid range when overtaking plays a huge part of driving.

Do we know for sure whether or not the transmission has to be in Sport for the tune to have an effect?

nope, confirmed with the dealer who tested the car, even in normal mode the effect can be felt for the tune, that was my initial worry too, if only sports mode can feel the tune, I will give this tune a miss

Do we know for sure whether or not the transmission has to be in Sport for the tune to have an effect?
