V60 - Solberg51 "Made in Sweden / Customized in France"

Hi,

Presentation of my V60 D5 Awd Polestar that I bought over a year ago, I have made several modifications over the months to give it a Polestar look...

I bought all my parts by searching on websites in Poland, Sweden, the Netherlands, UK and US ... Because in France, Volvo is a minority manufacturer with French manufacturers (Peugeot / Renault / Citroen), and many buy BMW, Audi and Mercedes in premium cars! therefore very difficult to find used parts or otherwise very very expensive in Volvo garage

Here's a list of the changes I made (I will publish pictures of each modification in the days that follow)

POLESTAR EQUIPMENT

- POLESTAR 20" MY18 OEM RIMS
- POLESTAR OEM REAR DIFFUSER
- POLESTAR PERFORMANCE OEM EXHAUST
- POLESTAR OEM CRANKSET
- OEM POLESTAR ROOF SPOILER
- OEM POLESTAR FRONT SPLITTER
- POLESTAR OEM LIGHT KNOB
- MONOGRAM TRUNK POLESTAR OEM
- CHASSIS KIT OHLINS
- BIG BRAKES BREMBO/POLESTAR

INTERIOR EQUIPMENT

- SPEED SELECTOR RETROFIT
- RETROFIT TFT DIM (VDASH)
- BLACK LEATHER / ALCANTARA SPORTS INTERIOR
- R-DESIGN STEERING WHEEL + CUSTOMIZATION
- MIRROR FRAMELESS
- WRAPPING CARBON 3M 2080 CENTRAL CONSOLE

EXTERIOR EQUIPMENT

- R-DESIGN FRONT BUMPER
- GLOSSY BLACK PAINT: GRILLE / TRIM WINDOWS / SIDE SKIRTS / MIRROR
- WRAPPING BLACK 3M 2080 ROOF BAR
- WHITE PAINTED BRAKE CALIPER
- GLOSSY BLACK V60 MONOGRAM
- MIRROR LED

ENGINE EQUIPMENT

- HOSES DO88 EXCHANGER / TURBO
- POLESTAR PERFORMANCE PARTS AIR FILTER
- DPF STAINLESS STEEL TUBE
- R-DESIGN STABILIZER BAR

More changes are planned in the coming months, I love this Volvo :D

my 1st modification, the purchase of second-hand Polestar rims in 20 "
I had them machined because I love the combination of silver and shiny black
the modification that cost me the most money, around $ 2,800 with the purchase of the rims + machining + Bridgestone Potenza tires

I bought last summer in Switzerland in a Volvo garage I got a Polestar Performance Parts kit (stainless steel exhaust + rear diffuser + air filter)
It was the sales! I bought the kit $800 instead of $1500

I had a problem with my left rear lights, my LED was no longer working properly so I changed the lights myself for around $140

I was lucky enough to find in Poland, the real Australian polestar splitters (S60 Polestar 2013) for $ 250, I couldn't believe it because it is so rare!

I found in Sweden in a dismantling center, the Polestar roof spoiler for V60, it is very difficult to find used, it is sold new $1500, I got it for $450 delivered in France ... so a good deal

Retrofit TFT made with Mountainbikert (whom I thank), Can't wait for performance mode to be available in blue on Vdash!

I recommend these Osram Xenon bulbs, I found that my bulbs were at the end of their life and so I decided to change them and I do not regret it

changing light bulbs on a Volvo is really child's play

I went crazy I didn't like the beige / caramel seats and beige carpet on my V60
So I decided to find in a dismantling center, everything I would like for a reasonable price! I found my happiness in the Netherlands at AutoRima which only sells used parts for Volvo, it was paradise!
I left with the V60 full of parts!!!

Love it all! Jealous of the rear spoiler, that thing is harder to find than I ever thought it would be.
Also love the refinish on the wheels, I’m not a fan of the original color but yours are pure fire.
Keep it up!

Yes it's very difficult, I was very lucky that day!
at the beginning I had bought the accessories of Polestar Performance parts but I did not really like the rendering
