Re: P155 take service costs

I was very surprised that I could not see the service plans on the price and specification brochure. I bought the 3 year plan.

Use Chips Away - they're pretty good. Spend the money saved on a new watch.
Excellent advice balmoral! Or something used from 'Watchfinder'

Re: Paint scratch help!

Loving our T5 Auto in Fusion Red, sadly didn't need to wait long for the first 'ding', or more accurately a scratch (from the watch I was wearing so totally my fault). I was slightly surprised how easily the bare metal was exposed and now wondering how best to fix it. Has anyone had success with th...

Re: oil level after service

Took the car back to dealer who checked it out and said it was new Volvo policy to only fill diesels to this level to avoid dpf problems. Anyone heard of this or is t...

Re: oil level after service

Perhaps get a 2nd opinion. Also, I don’t think they’re scrimping oil. If an engine fails due to oil starvation, it’s gonna cost them a great deal more than half a litre of oil. And I know what they would say, you should have topped the oil up Sir. My D3 arrived with a full oil reading, and I expect...

Re: Paint Protection. I’ve got it but is it worth it?

Ok, XC40 lovers. I’ve cancelled my GardX application. I will get it Ceramic Coated early doors (arrives on the 27th of September). Thanks for all your comments. I wasn’t truly happy we took it in the first place but all’s well that ends well. I opted for the service package instead. Please, please ...

Re: Waiting for September number plate

I think it may have been true about a higher value years ago when it changed on the 1st August to a new letter, but now changes are twice a year with numbers that the majority of the public do not recognise, I think only the year is relevant.

For anyone like me that hates the mucky prints on the Sensus screen, I can highly recommend the Brotect screen protectors - very easy to fit and stops all the finger prints. Also being a Matt finish they stop glare and reflections.
