    Default See this? Official Elevate/Autotech Performance Software GROUP BUY

    Have you guys seen this from Swedespeed - Looks like it might be interesting. Sorry If I posted in the wrong spot.

    Here is the link. http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=134157

    Official Elevate/Autotech Performance Software GROUP BUY
    For those of you who have wanted a qaulity tune at an AFFORDABLE price, here is your chance to make it happen! As you may have already known, Elevate has partnered with Autotech (top of the line Volvo tuners in Sweden) to put out a performance software available stateside. The purpose of this thread is not to bring up previous discussions about Evolve's old tunes (Powerchips) or to discuss any positive or lack thereof experiences with any of their products. The fact of the matter is that they are now partnered with Autotech and are reaching out to the Volvo community in the area we all like.....Our wallets!

    Below is the criteria regarding the GB:

    1. Open to all Volvo models 2001 and newer (excluding XC60, S80 current model and V70/XC70 current model).

    2. Price: 1-4 units: $895.00, 5-10 units: $810.00, 11-25 units: $740.00, 26 and more units: $630.00. If you have a second or third Volvo (owned by the original purchaser only), the tune alone for the additional vehicle(s) would be $450.00 each, regardless of how many participate in the group buy.

    3. The group buy is OPEN NOW, and will close April 4. Members can start fulfilling orders immediately at the $895.00 price. As the unit quantities increase, Elevate will issue a refund to customers, depending on how many sales from the group buy we end up with at the end. Example: Buyer #1 pays $895.00, but if twenty six or more end up buying, he/she gets a refund on April 5 credited back to his/her credit card for $265.00. Buyer #11 would only be charged $740.00 as his/her order is processed, but may get another $110.00 refund if the number of buyers goes over twenty six.

    4. When an order is placed (ONLINE ONLY), please put "Swedespeed PSGP" in the order notes. I will be talking to Don frequently and posting the numbers regularily.


    If you have any questions please post them and I will bring them to Don's/Elevate's attention. You guys wanted the opportunity, SPREAD THE WORD & LETS MAKE IT HAPPEN :beer:

    imho even 630$ is too much for extra 39HP for regular XC.

    GB means group buy, not Great Britain, right? Can be misunderstood in an english forum

    Default Tune Installed!

    The results are in and they are fantastic! I could not be happier. What a kick in the pants! My lowly XC was normally hitting around .5 bar regulary - Last night I was was hitting slightly above 1 bar easily. Torque is awesome and the passing ability is phenominal. Whoa what a lot of fun to drive! Good thing I am installing new braked this weekend.

    The thread on SS has been hijacked with some dude bagging Elevate and the quality of this tune. Its pop corn consuming material but disappointing to see. Reminds me of my admin days moderating Honda Civic forums.

    But Justin, you raise an interesting point. Whats wrong with Evolve/Elevate ?
