Finally remembered to take a couple of photos of the car after washing it...

6 weeks and 3500 miles on from taking delivery of the car its still looks as fresh as when we first saw and drove a V40 on one of Volvo's Freedom test drive days. Unfortunately I don't get to drive it so much as it's the wife's lease car, but it makes the weekends something to look forward to(and I still get to drive our other car - a mk1 Seat Leon Cupra - during the week for work)!

Thoughts so far...
Great drive
Quality interior
So much more interesting, inside and out, than a Golf
Caspian Blue - lovely colour (was going to go for a Rebel Blue one but ordered this instead)
Comfy seats
Small boot (the lease company insisted on the space saver spare and floor cover)
57.5 mpg over 3500 miles (a revelation after a Subaru Forester S-Turbo at 25mpg and a Seat Leon Cupra at 35mpg)

The D2 is the 1.6l diesel (115bhp). Impressed with it. I used to have a 2.0l (140BHP) tdi Passat as a lease car and this seems much quieter, doesn't feel much less powerful in day-to-day driving and will no doubt work out much more economical once the engine is run-in.
