Unfortunately once the poll is set up it can't be changed (well not by an normal user aka me). Also limited to max 10 poll options - so would have to lose one month.

Understood. I'll opt for 'More than 9 months' for now - for all I know, that's how long I'd have to wait.
Cancelled after waiting 3 months to be told delivery will take 11 months.

Changed to ‘Not Known’ as dealer still waiting info from Volvo. I suspect his original late-June estimate may be put back based on timescales given to others on here.
XC40 T5 FE, Fusion Red, 20inch wheels.
Ordered 15th March. Delivery, originally June, delivered 26th October.

Placed order 14th March for a First Edition, D4, White, Charcoal, 20" Wheels.
Dealer quoted production commencement Week 16, (16th April) with delivery May.
After recently making a progress enquiry to Volvo, informed production commencement has been changed to Week 38, (16th September) with delivery now expected October. A delay of 5 months !!!
The reason given by Volvo for the delay was due to increased demand. I have also heard of an issue with the lack of parts for the R-Design.
Who knows ?
Unfortunately Volvo seem quite complacent about disappointing XC40 customers.

Sympathies Julian, but that seems to be the norm now. They have been overwhelmed with orders, and clearly can't ramp up production capacity to match. It also seems that the extended FE order window has totally messed up their standard R-Design plans, as of course the FE is simply an R-Design with extra bells and whistles. It will be worth waiting for though!
It was an XC40 FE D4 AWD Auto - Bursting Blue/Charcoal/20". On the road since March 9th. Sold on August 20th. It was Polestarred. :)

Just had the phone call from the dealers, Mine is confirmed 1st week in October, but I'm not sure if that is the build date or the date I can pick it up????
It was ordered 3rd week in March, and this is the first conversation with the dealer regarding the delivery date following its order.
The dealer was very apprehensive when I answered the phone; he then thanked me for being so understanding. I think others he has had to phone have been a little less understanding.... :oops: ....

Hi All,

Been looking at the forum for a little while seeing how things were progressing. Just placed my order (thanks to Hitachi being useless) for an Inscription Pro D3 Manual (all my company will allow thanks to pretending to be green) in pine grey. Just been told that the factory's accepted the order due end of October. If it wasn't a Pro version, it would have been September. Suggests seats, windscreen or lights are causing problems in manufacture to me.

Out of interest, does anyone know what the difference is between the MY18 and MY19 is? I can't find it anywhere. I've tried a search on here, but got 18 pages of responses.

Hope those that have them already are happy they're as good it seemed on the test drive!
