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!

Dammit

Mines been pushed back now. Having been told June 14th they're now saying August. No idea WHEN in August. They're not too happy, my trade-in will be a few months older by then and they reckon I already cut them to the bone on my deal and that with the drop in trade-in value they'll end up making a loss. Serves 'em right.

Good God, they're now telling me August 21st. It's gone from June 14th (tomorrow, boo hoo) thought August 6th to August 21st. Quite a difference.
