newbie from Finland

Post by SteveW » Sat Mar 20, 2021 9:07 am

Hi,
potential new owner from Finland. just chopped in an RRS P400e for a BMW 530e as the wife's car and then eyeing up an XC40 for my run around and the daughters car, as she passed her test yesterday. Have looked at a used X5 as we miss the SUV driving. a Seat Tarraco, which was good for tech but otherwise quite poor and then test drove an XC40. got a really good deal on a demo car.
T5 TwE Business Inscription, 2021 model, 5000km driven in Glacier White, fully loaded with the addition of Technic and Light package, a 2nd set of wheels and tinted windows.

Have never had a Volvo before, have had a Subaru Impreza WRX, Mazda 3, 2 Alfas, BMW E350 coupe, 3 Range Rover Sports and the BMW530e.

Looking forward to learning and enjoying the car.

I have a T5 Recharge MY21 Business with everything except panoramic roof.

Very happy with the car. For FWD only I didn’t have any problems this winter (Espoo)

I think you would be quite happy with the XC40.

I do my daily school run + trips to office + shop on one charge so I’m happy with that. And on longer runs (Nort of Tampere or to Imatra) I’m getting around 7-8l/100km

Excellent.
Had a brief moment of dismay when I saw from the website that the car was reserved. Oh well, onto the next one. Messaged the salesman at 2100 and he replied 5 minutes later to say he had personally reserved the car, just to be sure so that no one else could sell it.
Happy days.
Once charge is nice. Will have regular trips to Turku but looking forward to picking it up.
