Looking good! Really cool rims on your summer wheels!

Surprisingly few V40s on Finnish roads yet but no complains on that as we’ve still got quite a unique car on our hands.

Congrats! I feel Ice White complements the V40's lines very well.
Thanks!

I'm just thinking about the winter wheels (I don't like original Matres 16") and I have two wheels:

1) Rundo WH16

2) MAK Goethenburg ice titan

Which is better for white V40?

Oooo ! Both sets very nice, I think I prefer the first set, they look a little like the expensive Audi Rs wheels to me. Just one question is that 490€ each or for the set?

It's 490 eur for the set in size 17".

I'll take the winterwheels in size 16" (I have Continental winter tyres in 16" with original Matres-wheels).

The first set look smart. Second set look too normal (in a nice way).

In spring I noticed that in my V40 has the fuel tank lid fit problem. Have you other V40 owners noticed that in your cars? One month ago I told this problem to the officer of Volvo service, but he said it's between normal tolerans. But it doesn´t look good, because the fitment of the doors is perfect. I'll try to get the new fuel tank lid into my car again. The tank lid is plastic material, not metal.

Again: Have you noticed this problem in your V40?

Maybe I can't desribe the problem in english. I've took some photos and I've sent them to the import dealer. Now I'm waiting for the answer...

Now my V40 has new winter alloy wheels, MAK Gothenburg Ice Titan in size 16". Original Matres 16" wheel was so boring.

Thanks! I like these wheels, they look alike the wheels of R-Design-model.
