Job done !
Nice V40 D3 purchased today, car was as described, few paint blisters couple of stonechip marks, sound engine and drove very nicely so all's well that ends well. New owner loves the car, maybe a new Volvo convert.

Thanks for your input guys

The D3 is the pick of the bunch I think.... nice noise, nice and torquey engine, easy to drive, but will still do 55 + mpg if driven gently on the motorway, and low tax bracket.

I know the D2 (4 pot) is more economical but if you enjoy driving - the D3 is substantially better ergonomically.

Oh yeah - and ultra reliable.

The D2 is sometimes criticised but it is one of the most commonly used engines across a number of manufacturers and usually bought by people for economy reasons so the most likely model not to be maintained well.
