Arrived on the 31st.....first trip out!

Post by K1t » Sat Aug 03, 2019 9:21 pm

Well here she is all crystal-white and glowing! Arrived Wed. 31st Aug. and after a very intensive check-over I stuck in £50 worth of juice and we paid a visit to Snows Hill Lavender Farm in the Cotswolds. Lovely day and a fantastic drive. That T3 engine is a Joy, really! Lovin` it, so far! :D

Very nice. I’m still waiting. It’s good to see the little flag on the wing (I zoomed in). I understood that it was only FE that had these so perhaps they’ve been rolled out into normal production models now.

I'd have to check but I thought I'd read a thread about the first of the FE's having the flag and after a certain number it was dropped?

Surprised that car's got one though as mine is 3 weeks old and a 2020MY and doesn't. Suppose it has to start and stop somewhere though. The other thread said that they were available as aftermarket/an accessory for those that want them.

Yes, you are right, I think it was the first 1,000 (or was it 500?) FEs had the flag.

Sorry, was a little blunt there. There's a thread from last year about the flags and how some had and some didn't. Also the little flags on the seats are on some and not others. Very random.

Hi all, I did wonder if the 'little flag' would be noticed! This is no longer o/e fitted by Volvo, to current models, sadly and as confirmed by a number of posters. However you CAN still buy one from Volvo UK (accessories, I believe) for around a bargain £8.00 ish for diy/owner fitting (instructions included) Takes about 2 minutes (including cleaning) As for the seat-flag, on mine, I only have 'ONE' This is stitched into a vertical seam on the drivers seat back just above the centre arm rest, and no were else, curious! Both are nice touches though. 8-)

No problem kirsty_s2k.
I haven’t yet got my car. People like yourself will be invaluable to me in the first few weeks and months. I’ve downloaded the on call app. The information available is whetting my appetite.
