Re: Eventually I waited for 7 months.

The brown looks gorgeous! Wasn't expecting the brown to look so good in real life based from the mock ups on the website. My pine grey is also different to the website - much more grey than i was expecting, which I'm happy about. I may have to move from the UK to Japan in a couple of years, I hope I...

Re: For those still waiting - what other car would tempt you to cut your losses?

Received my T4 2 weeks ago now - very glad I didn't waver after first making this thread! Drives like a dream, looks super smart - there's nothing like it on the roads (for now!). Only gripe is the MPG - 18.5mpg currently! Have yet to take it for a long drive to be fair - looking forward to the warm...

My 9% discount was using their hire purchase offer of 50% deposit at 0% interest for the remaining balance (3 years).

Re: Volvo XC40 Discounts

Got 9% off after the dealer beat my drivethedeal quote (not my local dealer, who refused to budge). Took a bit of back and forth but happy with getting 3k+ off.

Re: Poll: Lead times ( from order till delivery)

Finally got an update from my dealer after unanswered emails and several unreturned calls: build date 28th Jan with delivery to the dealer 6th Feb. Should be ready to pick up that weekend. Ordered 2nd week of Sept, so on track pending last min delays. Interestingly dealer said if we ordered now the ...

Re: Poll: Lead times ( from order till delivery)

Seems waiting times are shortening for those ordering now (in the UK?)- I ordered my T4 Inscription mid-Sept and just called the dealer to have them confirm 2nd Feb delivery. Final stretch!

Re: Delivery 6 months early!

Fair play to you for originally committing to a 10 month wait time!! Would love to know if this is indicative of a wider trend...

That's a good shout - just dropped them my monthly check in email and will ask the question. Well done on getting yours pushed earlier!
