New R Design Pro - 2 weeks in

Post by Talisker7 » Tue Oct 23, 2018 7:51 pm

Hello all,
Here is my introductory post. I purchased my T4 R Design pro in fusion red from the dealer in Dundee 2 weeks ago. It was their demo car.
So far the car has exceeded my expectations. Enjoying smooth petrol power, the excellent tech and HK stereo.
The only fly in the ointment, OK there are 2. Can anyone spot the issue with the roof rails?
Volvo are also thus far unable to get my On Call working which is a tad inconvenient.
Back to the dealers on Thursday to give them a chance to put those 2 issues right.

I’d keep the roof rails - a unique car! You could start a trend in aftermarket mods!

Hi TrevG, T4 is silky smooth and easy to live with with good torque (last car was a 3L diesel Macan) it has a good spread of power. Not a sports car by any stretch but there is enough power to entertain, up to a point. In eco it will do 37 mpg in dynamic it does 30mpg. Mileage has improved slightly with a few more miles on the clock.

Hi what is the story behind the roof rails did they give you a choice to go black or silver, If they were both silver it would have made the car unique.

Did get a choice and have decided to go standard, so it’s back to black. Unique sounds like fun but might not be to everyone’s taste!
