Warranty tuning

Anyone know of a way of tuning a D3 whilst keeping the car in warranty? I've been in a D4 courtesy car for a few weeks and love the extra power (albeit 30bhp more).

If tuning is not polestar you will lose factory warranty....

I feared that to be the case.

How about upgrading the D3 to a D4? Is there any difference between the two engines more than electronics?

I read in this forum that upgrading the T3 to a T4 is possible.

Anybody knows more about this?

T3 is the Same engine as the t4 with different software...
30bhp less...
Zo only upgrade option would be tuning..... But polestar doesn't support that tune..

@Marc - could you expand on that a little? Is this something which could be done by a dealer and in warranty?

I'm not really certain, but I know that the ECU is the only difference.

I believe Heico also does under warranty in Germany, sadly not in South Africa

Polestar only has for the V40 T4 at the moment, taking the 132kw engine to 147kw

Heico takes the T3 engine from 110kw to 147kw

I see there is a Polestar update on the S60 T3, 110kw to 132kw, so I assume towards the end of the year it will be available for the V40. 132kw is still not bad.
