I have a First Edition (D4) on order with a promised delivery in mid/late Feb for a March 1st 18 registration. Switched after I was let down on an ePace delivery by JLR and my local dealer.

The pics attached are of the demo vehicle that Volvo showed at their Daventry location in early December. My order is for the same Crystal White with the 20" wheels.

Out of interest what colour carpets did you go for?

Hmmmmm....... we are debating the same colour combination that you saw.

What did you decide to go for in the end?

Configuring a First Edition you have no choice of seat or headline colour (Charcoal only) but can select the Lava carpets or not. If not, the carpets are Charcoal. I thought the orange looked cheap and didn’t add to the overall look. Purely a personal view.

Mrs Jim has changed her mind and the order has been updated with charcoal carpets 👍
