All V90s have an automatic load cover - which means it slides up out of the way when you open the tailgate. Afaik itís been the same since launch, so what are you hoping it will do that it doesnít already?

Iím gutted that Volvo will not fit front sensors without activating Park Pilot too. My dealer told me itís £1200.

Not a chance. Are there any independents out there who might do just front sensors and be able to add the coding to integrate them without the self park??
My V90 has integrated front and rear sensors, but no ParkPilot, so they were obviously available for 2018 models.
2018 V90CC D4, 2014 V40 D3 auto.

I know itís possible. Itís just Volvo who want to money grab for a simple software upgrade to allow owners to have front sensors. Itís a ****in disgrace.
