Default Anyone ordered an S60?

Just ordered a new S60 in Denim Blue with Blond interior, Harmon Kardon, wireless charging and HUD. Been given an estimated delivery date of Jan/Feb 2022.

Hopefully I will get all I have asked for. Finger crossed.

Anyone else ordered the S60?

I've not ordered one but I have 2020 S60 T8, it's actually the same colour as yours and I've not seen many DB's. It's a nice colour particularly with the 19" alloys. I got mine as a ex demo, its got almost every extra, 19" Alloys, B&W sound, 360 cams, Pano roof, Polestar upgrade, Bliss, electric towbar, ete etc. It's a decent car, i actually wanted a BMW M340i but they were almost £10k more in basic spec so thought I'd try the Volvo

Yes, I got the 19" alloys as well. I am coming from a BMW 330i. Will be interesting how it compares to that.

What does the car drive like?

It's ok, very deceptive on the speed side, i would call it very competent rather than fun to drive. I've got the T8 so maybe I was expecting a lot from the 405bhp 4.4 secs to 60, it doesn't feel that most of the time, and even when you slam your foot, sometime it feel very quick and occasionally a bit meh. Did you order B5 or T8?

i think it will feel like a big car compared to the 330i, i got such a good deal on mine so not too bothered, i would have been disappointed had I paid near list for a new car.

If you get the T8 then you get the better battery range which is a big plus as I do about 80% on battery, you'll get 455 bph but somehow they made it 0.2s slower to 60, I'd take the extra battery any day though.

The Denim Blue is nothing like on the configurator, that seems more grey than blue, it is a nice colour though.

They drive lovely, there isn't really much as fast as them on the roads, m2/340i struggles to keep up with the T8, as do the latest Golf Rs, they just can't compete with electric assistance pushing you during gear changes and the supercharger/turbo handover.

Off the line, you need to turn ESC into sport mode to get the full power, even mid range pulls, ESC seems to limit power soni leave it off when using polestar / sport mode.

Itís not a bad car but no way any of the 3 cars you mentioned would struggle to keep up with it....a new M2 struggle, I think youíre getting a bit carried away there!

The OP might have ordered the B5 as donít think you can order blonde interior on the T8, the B5 is meant to be a decent engine though, not driven one but I own a T8, nearly purchased the m340 and driven a 2020 M2, the M2 is mental!!

I hope you get your new car when promised.

I've had a Jaguar F-Pace on order since June and the delivery date keeps getting put back due to the chip shortage.

Very frustrating.

Yes I ordered the B5, and I am going to get the Polestar software upgrade when it arrives. Only frustrating thing is that Volvo do not offer the wireless carplay. It has to be wired or buy the CarLink

Yes I originally ordered a Jaguar XE P250 back in April and it was cancelled by Jaguar in June.

M240i/M340i i should have said, M2 was meant to say m240i or m340i, not carried away at all, it sounds like you need to have your polestar map re-downloaded to me if you feel it is slow, there have been SPA platform cases where dealer updates didn't behave correctly and polestar wasn't active but the sport mode was still renamed to polestar in the dashboard.

Either that or you drove it like an old granny in 2020 and its not bedded in properly and its too tight
