Thumbs up polestar upgrade

I just found out about the polestar upgrade and opted to get it in my T5 R-Design. Did anyone else get the polestar? and how is it? is it worth money?

I did for my D4. Polestar upgrade works when you have the car in dynamic mode. I could see a noticeable difference in gear changes and more torque in midrange. I’m not sure how the polestar on T5, but I have read that D4 polestared engines have bigger difference than doing the T5 polestared.

Cool Polestar is great!

I have had Polestar on my XC40 T5 AWD since early June. It’s like driving another car. Mileage stays the same until you find your driving style has gotten to be a lot more fun. It is well worth the price if you like having fun while driving.

Polestar Question

Any idea if the Polestar upgrade includes an exhaust system upgrade?
Or, is the Polestar tuning option just focused on the EMS?
Thanks!
