I love the Polestar color, nice & rare

Very nice. I went with the same only in Ice White (only available via OSD) and have been waiting until out of warranty which will be soon. I will be sticking with 18" (more rubber preference). Other than the beefier anti-sway bar (which is first on my list), I'm thinking exhaust mod(s). How did you arrive at your decision and how do you like it? I've been eyeing a few including the Ferrita you went with. Any pointers appreciated. BTW, I don't know how you feel, but I've had a number of cars over the years (some a bit faster or more nimble), but I have been so overall impressed by my V60 RD that there isn't much to be done to keep me very happy. Hope you feel the same about yours.....Velocitoro

Hi, sorry, I haven't been minding this site very often... Thanks for the complement! I chose the Ferrita exhaust based on advise from one of Viva Performance's reps; that it is basically the Polestar exhaust without the variable sound. It was also on sale. IMO, it gives a nice relatively mellow sound, perhaps what the car should have come with stock, but had I known better, I would have opted for the KPAX exhaust, now owned by Elevate. This system has a more prominent sound without being too raucous, so very sporty, and from what I've seen on other's cars, very good quality construction.

Yep, I've also had a number of decent performing cars from V8 Audi's and Mercedes to small 4 cylinder Acura's and Toyota's, and this V60 RD is probably the best all around car of the bunch. It doesn't quite match my CLK55 convertible for all out fun factor (with the top down especially), but if you could only have one car to suit most of your needs, the performance versions of the V60 are hard to beat. Enjoy!
