Some Background...

Bought a 2002 S60 T5 (custom ordered) back while I was stationed overseas. Loved it, drove it for 6+ years and over 100k miles...nothing to complain about except the Volvo burnt out light bulb issues.

Wanted to try something different and bought an Infiniti M35X... great car, although not much to look at... served me well for 3+years.

Yesterday I bought a (used) 2012 S60 T6 AWD R-Design... WOW! Volvo has definetly changed over the years. This one is sooo smooth during acceleration and the AWD is fantastic. She is passion red with most all the options (MULTIMEDIA, TECHNOLOGY, CLIMATE, PCC, BLIS, PARKING SENSORS)... it is an absolute blast to drive. First time out I used the queue assist... awesome! Technology has come a long way in a short period of time. Looknig forward to driving this one 100K+ miles also.

p.s. I want more HP... 325 is nice, but it seems like the engine wants to put out more.

Congrats on a beautiful color choice! I love my S60RD and like yourself, I can't wait to add more HP when I get the chance!

I have a feeling it will just have to be intake and exhaust right? Is that basically the only thing that can be done to them? At least to get any significant increase....

BTW, anybody else have a TPMS (low tire pressure warning) that won't go away. All tires are good on air, but the damn thing won't go off.... putting off going to the dealer for them to do a reset/diagnostic of some sort.

You have a bad sensor, this happened to mine next day after delivery.

As you can tell from my signature it has been a while since I owned one (sold the 855 in 2006) and its nice to be back. Very pleased with my T-5.
Congratulations on your new/preowned RD!

Congrats on your RD. I love mine.

As far as exhausts go, there is a few out there. None of them up the power.

For me the 325 I have is enough to get me into illegal speeds quickly

Not sure what you mean - all RDs have the emblem.

You get that emblem when you register the car with Polestar; the previous owner did this.

I noticed when I bought it that someone had tried to pull the emblem off... The corner is bent up and it is now crooked. Thinking of taking it off and trying to fix it and put it back on... maybe get a new one.. if possible.
