Missing puddle lights under door handles?!?

Post by XCOsmium » Thu Oct 18, 2018 1:45 am

Hello all.

Took possession of my D3 R Design Pro in Osmium grey today (photos coming soon) and noticed when it got dark that there are no puddle lights under the door handles??

I've looked through the brochure I got back in March when I ordered and they are visible in the pictures but not mentioned in the standard kit or options l packs list ?

Is this something only available on the First Editions or has Volvo removed them to cut costs as the Swedish flag was also missing from my car?

Any ideas folks?

The Swedish flag would be missing you'll have to ask your dealer to get you one or buy one online for £15.
As for the approach lights that's strange... I've not seen anybody else mention they're missing them.

The Swedish flag (on the bonnet, or hood) was only put on a limited number of the first ones produced. Not all First Editions had them.
Ordered 24th February: XC40, FE, T5, Crystal White, Lava Interior (additional black carpets), 19" wheels, mud flaps, Tow Bar, Polestar, was expected June/July, then 1st October.
Finally took delivery on 16th October. 8-)

Thanks for the replys guys. Not too bothered about the flag but the puddle lights would have been nice. I have since noticed that the storage drawer under the driver seat is not there and the lockable glovebox has gone too. Don't know if anyone else with a MY2019 has the same issues

Puddle Lights are listed as standard on R-Design and Inscription in the Price & Spec list dated 21/09/17. MY 18 & MY 19 Ed 1. They vanished after that.

I was going to attach a copy but it seems PDF is not a supported file type.
