Is anyone aware of any offers?

I took an XC60 for a test drive today and was offered it at £745, which is too rich. I don't fancy blagging negotiations anymore, having chipped a lot off the price, and got my PX up. So was hoping to point to the price elsewhere to get it down to £500s.

Is it worth spending more to negotiate on ? E.g. You fancy a Polestar upgrade and another years Volvo Selekt warranty, but can't afford both?

Or maybe just spend the going rate on Polestar ? My £695 was in Yorkshire.

Google is your friend.

Most dealers have it on “offer” for around £695 but within a couple of minutes I found 3 dealers online* advertising it for £599.

Mailed over screenshots to my dealer and they agreed to price match plus discount by a further 10% as I am having it installed alongside the PDI before I collect.

(*Waterhouse, Johnsons and Stoneacre)

Hope this helps.

Polestar Optimisation has 50% off next week

But you do have to buy a Volvo Selekt used car

I bought one about 2 months ago. Will I qualify?

Does it really only add 5% power to a D5 XC60? 220bhp to 230bhp?

Yes but its not just about the power. Its how the engine and gearbox reacts after the upgrade that make the most difference. It feels so much better and more compliant when you need it.

It is down to personal taste though. Some have tried it and wondered what the fuss was about. For me it was money well spent.

You have to be very careful regarding claims on gear changes etc as what you are discussing is SPA cars. I own a non SPA cars and accordingly I have no modes etc in mine, it’s simply drive. I spoke/emailed to Polstar and there is a disclaimer that earlier models don’t benifit from this. When I overviewed it with Polstar mine would have increased torque and power (not a great deal I may add) however it would not alter shift patterns etc.

I think polestar on SPA cars seems to be a whole car driving experience. And their are also modes pre SPA such as the D3 that is taken from 150BHP to 180BHP (significant) but on my 200BHP mode the power increased is 10 and the torque is little.

All Polestar optimisations are not equal.

Thanks for the advice but I don’t have to be careful at all. I’m not “claiming” anything. I’m sharing my experience with the upgrade on my car.

If you look at my signature its clear which model I own. My Polestar optimisation is specific to that car. There is also a website (mentioned at length on here) that sets out exactly what the upgrade does to any specific model where it is available.

If there’s anyone on here daft enough to spend £700 of their hard earned money based purely on my post and blind assumption without proper research then they need to have a long hard look at themselves.
