Not at all sad, looking after our mental well being is very important. That's what I keep telling my wife each time I pop out to check another feature

That looks stunning in Osmium Grey - and for me to say that is a statement as I was offered one in this colour but at the dealers it didn't strike me as the colour I'd like!
Got a picture of the inside? Interested to see what Amber/Linear Lime looks like.

Stay safe all.

Not allowed, unless it's urgent or for weekly shop I'm afraid.

Of course, not the brightest day outside but do these help?

By the way, is the front edge of the sunshade (the metal strip) normally visible when it's closed? The area at the top highlighted in blue looks a little odd to me.

Yes, that's normal.

I just got my XC60 handover two weeks ago, on the Tuesday before the lockdown kicked in for the dealership. I was their last customer.

I have used the lock-down time to prep and protect both exterior and interior with as much ceramic coating products I could find the best. I managed to get them all via courier. Took quite a few days.

Just bought a Disklok anti-theft device today from Halfords. Still spending time to read the manuals via the center dash screen. Just found out about my glove compartment with its hidden key.

The plus side it that's its still looking clean and shining like a mirror

I think I'v read the manual half a dozen times now... probably more The glove compartment key is nicely hidden but you should also have a second one with the rest of your keys.

I have made a few, short, journeys to the shops or to pick up a take away but I am hankering for a real road trip!

Which model did you get?

Re the manual - download the main manual from the Volvo website and load it onto a tablet (eg iPad) and then read it from the tablet, much easier than reading it on the screen in the car.
