  1. That's the car i would pick. I've been seriously considering one as a no-care run around car. For that price, it gets you everything. Carplay, AA, LED headlights, car seat heaters AND coolers. punchy enough engine, a fun DCT. Great tyres for that grade of car. Its a complete package, especially for the price.
  2. Has anyone done anything exciting in the aftermarket to a stinger yet? Any big power gains to be had?
  3. That poor little 4 banger pulling around all that weight.
  4. They were pretty tough already
  5. @blybo The Redline is a totally different beast, especially with the 6 speed. I think GM needs some work on their auto transmissions. The VE SS and SV6 i drove, both had terrible auto's The hesitancy from the traffic light in the Volvo, is due to the transmission starting in 2nd gear from a stop. The Polestar tune wont help that (it still does it in mine). The only thing you can do is drop it into 1st manually which has its own issues as you need to change to 2nd relatively quick. Apparently new BMW and Merc's do the same thing, it helps get the EPA rating. This is something that didn't happen in the older 6 speed Volvo's so people assumed they were faster cars.
  6. This was a Series 2 wagon. The steering was fine and the ride comfort was fine. Lovely car, both inside and out. But the throttle response and power was so far away from what i expected. I could completely bury the throttle and it felt no faster than a corolla, there was no push back in the seat or excitement at all. Manual mode with the paddles made no change to its behaviour. I seriously considered one to purchase instead of the Volvo, but after that ride, I never bothered.
  7. Yes, the engine is rather impressive. I'm at 186kw 450nm from the 2.0L and it has no problem doing anything. A fully loaded car feels no different to an empty car. In comparison, my Clio RS would feel it if i had a big lunch. My Volvo isnt as good with fuel consumption though and sits around 10l/100km The SV6 Commodore is the most disappointing car i have ever driven. I expected so much more from the figures, but it was a big let down. I really like the idea of the new VXR, but wouldn't consider it purely because its the same SV6 engine.
  8. It will work fine until it doesn't.
  9. Thats the Flow, which is different to the Pressure. The unit says it has a maximum input pressure of 500kPa. A normal household tap can have anywhere from 400-1000kPa. As you mentioned, you have pretty good pressure, so i would suggest you are on the high end. I would look at a regulator if i was you. Not just a reducer that works on back flow, but an actual regulator that puts out a consistent pressure reading
  10. Favourite is Thanos. Least favourite is Widow, she was out of her depth in the first Avengers movie and has struggled through since. I hope Thanos swats her away like a fly again.
  11. Not sre if this has been posted before, but it addresses a lot of the concerns the general public should have with EV It seems even in Tesla heavy LA, there are still issues with infrastructure
  12. Tenille Townes - Living Room Worktapes (Spotify) Saw this lovely lady at Introducing Nashville at the Antheum Theater in Melbourne last week. She has a hell of a voice, and ill admit to welling up at Jersey On The Wall which has a terrible story leading into it. A very talented songwriter and singer.
  13. On the newer Drive-E drivetrains , it's also a remap of the TCU, shift speed, blipping down shifts etc. It's a nice way to get a 'tune' while maintaining warranty. Something that I wish I had when I tuned my GTI...
  14. See if you can squeeze an extra $2k into the budget for the Polestar optimisation. https://engineered.polestar.com/au/product/optimisation/xc60-d4-awd-drive-e-automatic-2019 It's a nice torque increase, but the transmission remap is worth it alone.
  15. ooooh what engine are you thinking? T6 or T5
