Hi all, I am Bytekiller and since a week or so owner of an almost new V40 T3 R-design (5000 km). My previous car was also a V40 but then a D2. As I don't drive that much anymore that was quite expensive (taxwise). Although the D2 was a fine ride, the T3 is way more quite and powerfull. So I am happy with my new wheels!

Hi Bytekiller,

Your new car looks gorgeous! We share a similar story - I owned V40 D2 for five years and recently replaced it with T5. So from the slowest directly to the fastest, ha. Although both are different worlds I still remember all those good old times with my D2. I drove T3 two times as a courtesy car and I loved it.

Enjoy your new V40!

I'm sure you would prefer the refinement and power of the T3, until you need to do long journies, the D2 would make your wallet fuller in money saved from fuel :) At least the T3 can do near or just below 50mpg on a run, I'm guessing the D2 would have done 65ish mpg...
