I've just ordered my V40, a D2. I thought I wanted the SE version (this is probably a UK-only thing) but decided that it was actually cheaper (by a long way) to get the lower specced ES model and add on the things I REALLY wanted as optional extras. These things were Cruise Control, Park Assist Camera, Auto-Wipers and the TFT Display & Illuminated Gear Knob. What you lose is all the chrome trim (which I don't like anyway) and power folding door mirrors - which I can live without for the almost £900 saving. I took one for an extended test drive and found it absolutely fabulous. I can't wait to take delivery, the next 6 weeks can't pass quickly enough!
