What are you talking about? How is me being excited to see a progression of a car on the same platform as my car done by mniwt insulting myself or taking satisfaction away from other people?

I think he's referring to MNIWT in his video...

I'll say this, all modifications (cosmetic and performance) will of my wife's choosing. But she has pretty good taste. ;)

Looks like you got one of the rare Unicorns dynamic package and all I got one too but my case was an accident I had no idea what I was buying.

Indeed! Our cars were twins from the factory.
Being AWD, my wife has requested I find a cross country decal for the hatch, do you mind sharing where you got yours? Do they come in different sizes?

There is a fella on eBay he is located in Canada and I bought these numerous times from him for the other XC90s. He used to sell them in pairs of 2 for 19.99$ shipped to the US... but now his pricing has changed but the style is also much improved too..

Here is a link to his store.

Here is episode 3, along with some pictures of the car from when we first got her home (again, sorry if the images are not displaying. They work on my computer and phone, but aren't visible for everyone for some reason. The image links below each picture should work).

Here's a sneak peak at what we accomplished in the first 24 hours of ownership.

So looking at the list of stuff you have on yours mine is quite a bit basic in comparison, maybe that makes it a bit more rare since most of them were loaded like yours.

Puddle Lights - DONT have those.
Sunroof - DONT have
Leather Interior - DONT have
Brushed Aluminum Interior Trim - YES
Power/Memory Driver Seat - YES
Power Passenger Seat - YES
Cargo Cover - YES
Auto/Dual Climate - YES
Roof Rails - NO
Dynamic Trim - YES
Cargo Net - NO
320mm Brakes - NO 300... upgraded to 320... not sure why my 06 didnt have them yours did. I thought they didnt become standard until later.
Roof Spoiler - YES and its glorious.
OEM Strut Bar - YEP
Homelink Visor NO :(
Auto-dimming Mirror with Compass NO :( I wish.
TSW Nurburgring 18" x 8" ET+40 ... looks amazing.
Roof Basket NO
Custom Fire Extinguisher Mount NO

Still fun to see two alike. Until now i thought i owned the only one with Dynamic pack in silver V50.
