Re: Individual Drive Mode Questions

On the dials in dynamic mode, you lose the READY symbol as it disables start/stop.

Not sure about dynamic braking but dynamic suspension firms up the suspension if you have FourC active suspension otherwise I don’t think it does anything as it’s got nothing to adjust.

Re: Brakes

Hiya,
I’ve got an R Design and find the brakes absolutely fine. There is an option in the drive mode selector to change the sensitivity of them as well.
I’ve had an M3 and a R35 GTR previously so am used to ‘sporty’ cars and the XC40 brakes are absolutely ok compared.

Re: Polestar Upgrade

I’ve had it now for 5 days but not done many miles yet. From the few miles I have done, the mid range torque is definitel y noticeable and feels very ‘punchy’ between say 2k and 4.5k revs. The gear changes are also a lot faster and now sounds and feels more like a Manual or dual clutch box and is re...

Re: Cool or tacky...?

Sorry, but I was more interested that you've had your T5 'Polestarred'. I'm seriously looking at this - what does it add for you? Can you feel a big difference? Hi Andrew, I’ve had it now for 5 days but not done many miles yet. From the few miles I have done, the mid range torque is definitely noti...

Fitted the LED rear indicators and brake lamps today, the indicators are a vast improvement over the filament lamps with a slight improvement to the brake lights well worth the upgrade
Trev,

Can you let us know exactly which bulbs you used please?

Thanks, Ian

Re: Cool or tacky...?

Ladies and Gentlemen... your thoughts please! Where did you find it? It was on eBay. Says it’s for an XC60 but fits fine and no errors. A bit fiddly to fit as the wire is short so I had to unbolt the bottom of the doors and squeeze my hand up inside to fit the wire connector but all good in the end...

Re: Sunglasses holder

It cost me around £35 delivered from www.volvopartshop.com.
I fitted it myself after delivery and it was pretty easy.
I’m finding it very useful now we’ve got a bit of Spring? Sun

Tailgate driver display...?

Mornin 😀

Just wondering why when I start the car in the morning, the tailgate shows white on the driver display.

I can’t really remember if it’s done it since new or not and I’m pretty sure it’s closed properly.

Does this look like yours when you start your car?

Re: Four-C Active Suspension

I’ve got 4C on my R-Design and can definitely tell the difference between comfort and dynamic so it’s doing something! You can ‘feel’ the bumps and ridges in dynamic whilst it’s very smooth in Comfort. Also doesn’t tip as much when pushing on through corners when in dynamic. I like having the choice...
