Default V60 D2 performance upgrade

Hi all,
Long story short - dealer told me the D2 2.0 was good on performance. Within three days of getting it I realised I bought a tractor.
Volvo have kindly taunted my online Volvo account with offer of Polestar upgrade - well every V60 except mine. Of all the V60's that are manufactured the V60 D2 2.0 is screaming out for a Polestar upgrade but alas Volvo won't / can't do it.

It's is under a PCP so I have to be careful what I do next. Volvo have told me that if I remap it may effect my warrantee.

I have seen on RaceChip web site that their boxes do not effect warrantees

Any advise welcome to turn this Swedish Tractor into something resembling a car that is able to overtake a Ford Fiesta going up hill at 50...!

Your dealer's a bit of a comedian!

I thought the D2 was slow in the V40...

Fortunately, the 2.0 engine means ample room for remaps.
