Thanks for that. I have been searching the manual diligently without finding this important step. The Volvo manuals are generally very good but some features are either overlooked or only accessible by another path!

I noticed in a reflection from a shop window, that the white ‘Hammer’ running lights turn yellow when indicating.

The rear wheel arches have small ‘winglets’.

The tyres are Pirelli P Zero where I expected then to be Pirelli Scorpions.
what are the winglets for?

Aerodynamics of course. They removed them on Lewis Hamilton’s Mercedes because they gave him too much of an advantage 😜

Just design detail I think. My neighbour's Evoque has similar.

As regards tyres, it's usually what they can get the best deal they can from the tyre manufacture. Sometimes end of line as I've found more than once when trying to get matching replacements.

That if you use the dashboard ticket holder you need to be careful. Placed my car park ticket in the top of dashboard holder (piece of "premium" bendy plastic) the ticket fell out, lost forever between the dash and window.
Next time I'll place the pay and display ticket on the large dashboard.
Used my ticket holder a few times now - no way it will slip out. Suggest you get it checked out as I have not heard of anyone else having problems.
Just happened to me when using it for the first time!! Dealership assured me it won't be a problem.

Apart from having to buy another parking ticket😀.

I understand that the ticket holder is no longer available in the MY2021 version of the car.

Really strange as I just had to empty the bin (before lockdown) as it was full of pay and display tickets ('parking ticket' makes me have bad dreams) and still never had one slip out.
