insurance for polestar upgraded V90 CC D4
I have just got a polestar upgrade today for my Cross Country after a couple of weeks of ownership, and have notified my insurance (Aviva) who have told me that they can no longer insure the car and for me to cancel forthwith. So can anyone point me to an insurance company who wont get cold feet for such a minor change in spec.

Direct line or Admiral are both ok with it.

With DL you need to call them and they confirmed to me itís no extra cost.

I had no extra cost at Direct Line either.

I had the same scenario with my insurer when I added Polestar, they told me to sling my hook. Got a quote from Volvo Insurance and they beat my previous insurer on price.

No issues with Elephant for me.

Most insurers will accept a remap for a small charge as long as its less than 20% power increase.

I fitted an uprated intercooler to my old S60 D5 and the choice of insurers went down the toilet.

I had it done on my S90 before I took delivery but declared it to insurer. I was with LV at the time and they didn't care, and renewed with AA since and they don't care. No increase in premium either time.

Cheers everyone! I got it sorted through Volvo insurance, aviva wants £56 for cancellation so Iíve put in a complaint to get that back seeing as it was them that wanted the cancellation!

No extra cost with LV for Polestar upgrade.

I know it's been asked before, but how many of you have done the upgrade from a D4? (mine's a Cross Country).

and are you joyous? :)

I'm close to ordering ...

I've no regrets, so I suppose you could say I am joyous. :regular_smile:
