well guys i ordered my car 1 month ago and final i have my production date now all i need is my vin number and what ship its on and i will be happy;)
Just very confused sales people the spec say standard 7" display but with propack its 8" display and have just been told all v40 coming to south africa will only have 8" displays from 2014 so why pay for 8" as a option if its std from next year .

I had a look again on the sites, and the multimedia (audio) screen in center of dash is 7 inch, also comes in 5 inch. The active TFT display (speedo cluster), is 8 inch, unless you take the analog one, but that is only on the basic entry level packages.

I would be a bit miffed. Tell them to cancel the order, then go Friday and place new order at 14% less :)

Wish I could do that now. :-(

VoodooBOB wont do that if i reorder the new 2014 price is R37000 higher for the same car.

1: The exchange rate is screwed

2: The car price is going up 12%

3: They also want to increase CO2 tax by 2% in Jan if i read between the lines

4: The 14% less is on cars in stock or on the water i believe is to try and sell 2013 cars before 2014

hey tool and vodoo, another SA here!

Tool, the question about the 8" also confused me a bit when I was looking at the V40.... its as voodoo said, 8" the TFT speedometer, and 7" the screen... the lower packages are with 5"..

I reckon volvo should fit a 10" ehehhe
