The new Volvo V40 arrived at the dealer

Yesterday I visited Volvo-dealer Kallen in Geleen (The Netherlands) and when I arrived a brand new Volvo V40 arrived, just from the factory in Gent (Belgium) where the V40 is produced. The new V40 will be available in August 2012 but some dealers have a V40 for testing and as demo-car. These V40s will both be testcars. The design of the new Volvo V40 is awesome! And it has a small detail that reminds of the Volvo P1800: the rear doors have the same small bend as the P1800-series had in the doors. Very cool!

The pictures are taken with my Lumia 800 in a dark workshop of the Volvo-dealer. You can click on the pictures for a larger image.

The front of the new Volvo V40, the car is a lot bigger than the C30 and is actually a small V60. Notice the V40 of Johan in the background and you can see how the new Volvo V40 has grown compared with his precursor

I really like the ice white color on this Volvo V40 and the lowered chassis (available as sportsline series) is a must-have on the V40

    Merry Christmas to you too Rob
    Thanks for the ultra quick reply.
    The oil for the engine you did mention.
    What about the oil for gearbox and overdrive?

      If you have the standard M41 gearbox you can use also 20W50 mineral oil. Don’t use ATF like some people say, because it’s way too thin for your gearbox.
