Alot more publicity for the new V40 recently so expect more people to find this forum - like me
The V40 seems to be attracting lots of interest in the UK at the moment but especially over in the Netherlands, where i think you lucky people (Michel) wil be taking deliveries of the first batch very soon.
Patience, it'll get more active around here as people start getting their cars
BTW, I finally managed to get a spot and test-drive an automatic (it's a pity they didn't have manual) D3 V40 two days ago and it was super! The engine is quite powerful, I got easily to 140km/h without really pushing it at all. The car was very stable on the road, with a good feeling on the steering wheel; not too strong, not too soft.
I really loved driving it, I wish I could keep it more than one hour so that I could enjoy it more!
Agreed with Wimbledon. Very few British V40s on the road at the moment. But that should change this next week and the forum will pick up. I'm just hoping they have fixed the door speaker resonance problem by the time I collect my car

If each of those 17 members made only five posts, there would have been 85 new posts within the last 24 hours. The forum will be busier in due time. There will be more to discuss once more individuals have V40s. I thank those that login everyday and contribute their thoughts. The forum cannot spring into bloom without the initial momentum from the first members.
My v40 is still in the make, but last week their was a big premiere in Brugge (belgium) and I went their.
I asked to drive with the v40 D3 geartronic and they said: "here are the keys have fun "
I took it for a ride and I was blown away by the power of the car (I compared it with the audi a4 my father's has with 180BHP)
Very siked to recieve mine in a couple of weeks.
I ordered mine 08/08 and they said it will be delivered 01/10-14/10
Ok guys lets have a little fun with this one whilst also helping fellow members get the full functionality of their prized V40s, Today by accident I found that the centre console arm rest can be adjusted forward for extra comfort, a small but totally random find which will become very usefull on...

Mystery Starting Problem 2013 D3
Had the car for 2 months now and occasionally car doesn't start until 3rd attempt. At first I thought it was me not pushing the clutch down far enough as it was a new car, therefore new experience, but still does it. On first attempt nothing, second attempt all...
Hi, so in about a month or so I am getting my first V40, however I can’t decide which one is best for me! I normally travel a mixture of roads and only do about 8,000 to 10,000 miles per year. But I don’t know if I should go for a diesel or a petrol. I also want something with good acceleration...
Looking for some advice.
My engine was losing coolant, found out it was the cylinder head casket, so replaced it. Just noticed today, 2 weeks after the replacement that my car smokes badly when I floor it.
Any ideas what could be wrong now?
