My Volvo isn't set to arrive until September but I'd love to get the Polestar upgrade at a discount. Do these offers come back around?

Buy now at discounted price, have it installed later.

Dan does the premium remain the same with this upgrade or likely to cost a bit extra?

I was with Hastings insurance when i had my polestar put on my V70, when i called them before having it done they outright refused to contonue insurinbg the car, even though I stressed it was a genuine volvo 'part' they said it changed how it came out of the factory.

Switched to Volvo insurance and they added 6 to the premium for it..

I too am considering Polestar on my 2018 V60 D4 whilst its on offer for 650 pounds at my local dealer

One question

Does the upgrade provide a new map to just the Dynamic setting of the car - or does it affect the other settings too (Comfort/Individual/etc) - or does it provide a new Polestar option in addition to the existing options

Many thanks

Chris Knott charged me an extra 57 because of the increase in HP after another adviser told me Id just pay an admin fee because it was an official Volvo upgrade. I should have got the advisers name, lesson learned.

That's a bit harsh. I've been with Admiral the last few years as I had tuned my Focus but limited it to under 25% BHP gain. It saved me going to the 'specialist insurers as they always cost more.
I'm picking up a D4 V60 Momentum Pro and getting Polestar on it. Admiral are charging 33 for changing the car inc 19.50 admin fee. When i mention Polestar as it's less than 10% BHP gain, no additional charge.

The main trick is to let them know its less than 10% gain.
