Readiness for Delivery

This message is aimed at those who have already taken delivery and/or those that are well versed in such matters and prepared for the big day! Is there any information required from the dealer in order to set up all functions on for example Volvo on Call. I was thinking in terms of vehicle identific...

I ordered in March and keep being told to expect it mid October. It would be nice to get a surprise call to hear it's coming earlier though. I was feeling like I was going to be last... :roll:
I also ordered in March and latest estimate is Factory Complete 16 October. The race is on😜

Re: Tyres

Mines is coming with 20" wheels; If I decide not to do a swap with somebody for 19", I will run Michelin Cross Climate (+) 255/45/20's, they are expensive; I would run them all year round. I don't think standard UK oem's on an XC40 will be all-season If I do swap to 19", I will probably run Nokian ...

Tyres

Can somebody please tell me whether the standard tyres on an FE are all season or not.
Thanks in advance .

I am still deliberating over whether to go for winter tyres or not. This knowledge will help greatly.

Re: Polestar

I have now taken the plunge and have secured Polestar at today’s price. The dealer feels that it is very worthwhile especially for me, coming from a very quick Audi SQ5. Given all the feedback from Forum members, I did not need a lot of convincing. I have decided to take delivery without Polestar an...

Re: Polestar

You probably read it here........ https://www.topgear.com/car-news/suvs/polestar-will-make-your-regular-volvo-more-drifty Polestar makes a difference in all modes as far as I know. Maybe they mean the extra power to the rear wheels only takes effect when stability control is off or in dynamic mode....

Re: Polestar

I have read somewhere that in order to access the benefit of Polestar you have to either be in dynamic mode or switch off stability control. Firstly, is this the case? Secondly, if this is the case, would I see any benefit in Eco mode or Comfort mode? As I rarely use Dynamic mode, I am concerned as ...

Re: MPG - Again :-)

Just wondering if there's any air con factor in some of the lower than anticipated mpg some are mentioning. We've had a lot of unusually warm weather lately so I'd imagine the air con has been working pretty hard. Have read a few things about possible reduction of up to 25% (not XC40 specific) part...

Off Road Mode

Like the majority of us, I am still awaiting delivery of mine and am thinking ahead to winter. From what I have read, the Off Road Mode is the one for slippery roads. In the Highlands of Scotland we experience these frequently. Again, from reading, it would appear that this mode should on,y be engag...
