Yes, the upgrade may make the gear changes smoother, less delay etc but tbh its not that bad..... the stock D4 has enough oomph....

If only it was a simple (permanent) "within 5% power uograde therefore no change....."
When I was discussing this with Direct Line, their view at that time (12 months ago) was that as Polestar is available as a standard option on a factory order car, then it is not classed as an upgrade, it is simply classed as an option, the same way the 360 camera is, or the HK or B&W system.

I would suggest discussing it in this way with your insurer. Simply a factory option being added after the event.
