155 maybe not, but Volvo do say that their cars are designed to have a survivable impact crash at 112 and why it was set at that speed!!

I had a look back at the pricelist/spec. for my car. There was so much choice then! Which was one of the main reasons I moved over to an XC40 as I could pretty much have what I wanted. Along with the couple of packs etc. the spec. was great and for what I considered a reasonable price. The dropping of the R-Design with its added touches has taken away quite a bit of the appeal for me.

Yes, absolutely brilliant car. The R-Design has lower? firmer suspension? and Paddle Shifters?
One of those rare occasions where they got it right first time.

When did they go? Was it when the 48 volt Mild Hybrid came in and the exhaust pipes got tucked out of sight?

Yes, got them on mine. I know some folks don't use them but I do quite a lot and would really miss them. Even my son's new Mazda 2 has them.

With the new DCT auto boxes do they still have that daft side to side "manual" gear changing?

I had a Passat with DSG, no flappy paddles but I found using the "stick" natural as mainly only ever driven manual cars and the DSG was fore and aft to change gear. I suppose if I did use the side to side in my XC40 more, I did try it once, I'd get used to it but then I don't need to!

Yes, but have you ridden a Lambretta with a hand gear change! Only joking, I imagine you can drive/ride pretty much anything.

I've got motorbikes as well, left and right gear changes and a manual car so think I could get used to the sideways gear change if I applied myself! In the TT I do look for the Start button now and then!
