Nice to see that the flags arrived at their destination.

I have some more in stock so don't hesitate to order: http://www.swedish-connection.nl/nl/zwe ... ber-detail

I must admit, as trivial as this little detail is, I was never told this was limited to the first 5000 or 4000 cars? It is a subjective feature, and as with colours, designs etc, it is purely down to an individuals taste, but for Volvo, I would have thought every car would have it or at least be an option to have it because it is such a quirky design, and for the most part, people love it - ultimately it is great advertising.

Like some, I do worry how long it would last on the car before being stolen but I would at least like that option. Looking under the bonnet (hood if you're American) there is a specific indent where it goes.

I would like to think these can be purchased if lost, for a nominal fee or simply replaced free at service time. Again, it's all in the marketing...

Why this has been poorly communicated is a disappointment.

Got my Sales advisor to collect a flag for me. Seems all new xc40s can get one if request, even those that XC40s that arrived earlier without a flag.

Apologies for being a bit dumb but am I right to assume that the flag actually sticks the under the underside of bonnet and not on the body of the car?
Many thanks in advance.

I like it personally! It's a really neat little touch. However I wouldn't be as fussed as some people appear to be, doesn't really bring much to the car other than a nice subtle detail
