I just bought a 2016 V60 T6 RD Platinum from a dealer that wasn't able to tell me if it had been p* optimized. However, I found a sticker inside the gas door(see picture) and a left over polestar box with some documents (not the certification) in the glove compartment. I have contacted polestar directly to see if they can tell me by looking up the vin (still waiting to hear back). A volvo dealer offered to hook it up to a computer and charge 1.5 hours of labor to see if they can find out (how nice of them). Does the gas door sticker or decal come with the polestar optimization or is that on every Volvo? Are there any other ways to find out if the car has in fact been optimized? --the car does not have the blue p* decal on the rear--

Likely your previous owner didn’t like the little blue badge and removed it , or possibly someone stole it off the trunk.

The box with the Polestar jewelry in it and that sticker (our 2016 doesn’t have one! But our window sticker lists it as an option) makes me fairly convinced you have the P-Star optimized software.

Otherwise it’s hard to tell without side by side driving with a non optimized S60 to recognize the driving dynamics differences.

We did add a VERY costly P-star racing exhaust system that came with its own little sticker placed on the radiator support by the local dealer who installed it.

Drive that car like you stole it! You got a Polestar brother/sister.

If your 2016 V60RD is a 3.0L 6cyl than you definitely have the Polestar tune and just missing the rear badge; my former 2012 S60RD and current 2015 V60RD both had the Polestar fuel door stickers. The 2.0L 4cyl R-Design's in the US did not come standard with Polestar tuning like the 6cyl models.

Thanks gents! I'm fairly convinced it has been optimized especially if you're saying the 2016 V60 RD 3.0T came with it from the factory. It felt like it pulled a little harder than the 2.0L RDs I test drove. That could just be me playing favorites. I'll confirm next time I'm in for service at the dealer.

The proper way is to ask another dealer to check it for you while you're doing the service. It probably only takes the stealer technician 1 minute to find out...
