Booked into my local dealer for £675 at the weekend. Any savings lost on fuel to Carlisle. Good offer though.

Hi, Thanks for posting, can anyone who has had this optimisation tell me if it is worthwhile? I have a 2008 V70. Does it increase insurance premiums?
Thanks,
Jo

It will probably increase premiums if you tell the company

not necessarily - I'm with Aviva and no change.

If you don't tell, then a potential no insurance scenario if something unfortunate arises.

We find that the majority of insurance companies do not increase with premiums with Polestar as it is a Genuine Volvo upgrade and is tried and tested.

Is it worthwhile?
- Well, I think so - see below (some courtesy of Lloyds)

Premium increase?
- Not necessarily - not with esure (in my experience) and not with Volvo Insurance either.
But you may need to shop around a bit, depending on your idea of an acceptable price.

I have had Polestar upgrades to both a V60 D4 and V40 T5, no change in insurance premiums with Axa. I also stressed it was an official Volvo upgrade.
