Default Polestar and Insurance

Just purchased a used V70 which has the Polestar upgrade. My insurance through Coop don't want to insure it as it is classed as a modification as it is not factory installed.
When I am doing an online quote what category does the Polestar Modification come under?

I usually declare a remap as an engine/performance modification depending upon what options are available.

Try Adrian Flux, Footman James, or indeed the club's own insurers https://www.volvoclub.org.uk/chris_k...nsurance.shtml

They don't understand what it is , you can try and educate them before going elsewhere as an exercise ...

It IS a factory installed software , the software comes direct from the factory live ....over very secure lines and arranged through their approved franchise dealer ... the fact that the factory warranty isn't affected and it is only a modest increase in power to what they are thinking must mean something ..
