Hello from Consett

Post by Db55 » Sun Jul 08, 2018 1:20 pm

Whilst I’m saying hello l’m afraid I’m one of the many who is suffering from the dreaded delay in delivery. It was supposed to be end July but now October,fingers crossed!!. Hopefully when it arrives it will be a T5 FE in osmium grey with headlight washers and 20” wheels 🤞🤞as well as everything else of course!.

A warm welcome from a Northumbrian, nice to see someone from the north east on here!

Worth the wait and hopefully in time to enjoy the Consett winter!

Thanks for the welcome xc40fun, I along with many others am suffering from the Volvo long wait syndrome. Hopefully the car will perform well in the Consett winter ❄️ having watched a couple of things on you tube I’m very positive. Once it arrives will have to meet up and compare notes.

Cheers Kirsty, can’t wait. It was always going to be a problem knew from the start. First time buying a car I haven’t test driven, probably like numerous other people on here, must admit I am a tad worried if I’ve done the right thing!. 🤞🤞
