Forgive me for whining on about the same subject :)
But, do the rest of you have a delivery date, estimated or not, for your car?
I'm now at the end of the first week since order placed and my dealer still can't (or won't) tell me anything....the silence is deafening.

I have got a delivery date, but it took a while for the dealer to get it from Volvo DK. I ordered in the end of June, and they could not give any delivery date until mid august. Ofcourse, they did not start building the cars before the end of July, but I though they had a rough idea of how many cars they could build pr day and then calculate it.
Anyway, the dealer told me I could pick it up this week, but I'll see it before believing it! :)

Ordering that early (way before production even started) I can understand the delay for giving you a date.
Hope you can contain your excitement for the next few days :D

I placed my order on 1st July and was told then that my V40 would be on a production cycle process which takes 3 months from order. I've since been told that it might be possibly later because of the spec I've ordered (sports chassis, digital tv). I was also told that because the Ghent factory isn't up to full production yet it would be 3 months. So if you ordered a week ago I reckon you'll take delivery between Christmas and new year if my experience is anything to go by.

Did you order any extra spec? I was told mine is showing 'built'' on the system but they have no idea when it's going to rock up at the dealers. It's getting a bit silly now.

It'll be special, but hopefully not too special that its tricky to build :D

I have all that (except park assist) plus digital tv and sports chassis. To be honest I wish I'd picked up a Golf GTI!

Nooooo you don't... You've made a very intelligent decision to even consider something different

Golf is nice but with the V40 you will be driving a very rare car for a while. I really liked my Golf GT Tdi but I was always a bit disappointed with the build quality. Doesn't sound like that's improved with the mk7 every review I've read puts the V40 ahead of the Golf. Even Whatcar who've been critical of the V40 Recognise the fact that the interior of the new golf is way short of the quality of the V40.

Hi
I've checked on mine with the dealer:

Order date 28th Aug
Estimated delivery 22nd Oct
Latest estimate 30th Nov

I've ordered the D2 with extras, but not the panoramic sunroof which some were speculating as the cause for delays.

Patience is a virtue they say!

My V40 that I ordered at the end of July was delivered Thursday (04/10/2012) morning, two weeks earlier than expected and wow does it look fantastic. I will post some pictures as soon as I can. It certainly is worth waiting for. Rolleyes
I replaced an Audi A1 Sportback with the V40
