This is my swedespeed project car that some of you may have seen on our various social media channels. I bought this V60 new from my dealer here in Northern VA. This is one of 34 Rebel Blue V60 R-Design wagons in the U.S. 2015.5 was the last year before Rebel Blue became an exclusive Polestar color. The KPAX performance exhaust adds an audible character to go with the Rebel Blue exterior. I use have used Mobil One and Royal Purple synthetic motor oils. I have had it on the dyno to measure the performance parts. It is garaged at home and the office. At 393 miles Volvo replaced the heated front windshield with non-heated glass at my request. I did not like the night-time visibility with the vertical lines within the glass.
