Cheers for all the replies. I am actually very tempted by the ice white now but I think the panaromaic roof is a must. I'm not sure about the blue, was really keen but i still have that niggling doubt - i'm not sure if I would regret it or not. As my last 3 cars have been black maybe I should have a change.

jactac - Can i just ask....what does the rear styling kit include? I can find any information on it on the website. Do you think they are still doing it?

Thanks again!

Oh man you wont regret Ice White with the Panoramic roof, and if you add the styling kit its the icing on the cake.

The kit comprises of :

"Exterior Styling Kit for V40 R-design" contains the following parts:
Deflector, side
Deflector, rear
Spoiler, roof

The roof spoiler replaces the standard one, and the deflectors are added to the sill and the rear wheels aches.

I think its £675 fitted ?
It comes pre-painted to match your car.
Each different colour has a different part number for the kit.
Ice White is 39831938

When researching you might find that you see that Volvo offer two types of rear styling kits, but theres just the one for the R-Design.
It's listed as :
"Exterior Styling Kit for V40 R-design"

The other is "Exterior Styling Kit", main difference is the roof spoiler on the R-Design kit is a different style and replaces the original, I dont think it is replaced on the standard kit ?

When you build your car on the Volvo site you will find the kit on the accessories page at the bottom.

It is definitely still available.

Ah thank u jactac. I just found the styling kit. It does look very nice. Don't think I have the money for it though after the wheel upgrade and pamoramic roof. Thought I had finally come to a conclusion with Ice White and then I come across this colour....FML ��

Any of you guys seen this colour in the flesh. I think it's a premium metallic colour?

If your buying new get the dealer to do a "deal" on the kit, theres always room for a bit of movement on the price.

I've seen a silver V40 but not sure if its this particular silver ?

For me, and this is just my opinion, Silver can sometimes look a bit dated, dont get me wrong it looks nice in those pics.
I also found on the silver cars I've had that after washing,polishing & waxing it doesn't really "stand out", it just looks like a cleaner car, but like I say thats just my opinion.

Just to throw in a curve ball have you considered red with the Panoramic roof.
Again its a colour that contrast's well with the black trim and roof, just like Ice White and Rebel Blue.

I would probably say Ice White, Rebel Blue, and the red would be my final 3 choices, but all with the Panoramic roof.

electric silver I think premium with a price to match, a nice shade if you are into silver not the bright in your face silver wheel colour, try haggling at this time of the year, remember February is a slow month for dealers even with a Motability lease I got £500 towards the advance payment when I had already had one for the v40 that was being returned after just 8 months.

Ice white with panoramic roof was what I had and it was nice, the roof looked good and the chrome surrounds on the windows didn't stand out too bad against the white paint, it's also a no cost paint choice so that offsets the price of the roof a bit. The panoramic roof also makes the interior lighter as black leather and black headlining makes it pretty dark inside, although if you or your passengers are tall I believe the roof reduces the interior headroom slightly. I like the silver but its a fairly expensive paint option, but silver is one of the easiest colours to keep clean and again the chrome blends in with the silver paint well.

I do agree with silver being an easy colour to keep looking clean, it never seems to look as dirty as some colours.
I actually think too that white tends to stay looking cleaner longer than black, I know that may sound odd but black just shows up every bit of dust and dirt almost as soon as you've cleaned it.
