Guy at work has just got nearly 6k off an XC40 inscription pro. You might not believe it and in fact nor did I but I have seen the paperwork so it is true.......

We provided a letter from work explaining that he was opting out of the company car scheme which apparently opened up "trade terms" for him. Only downside is that he couldnt get the service package as that is not available with trade terms......

All the best
Just stumbled on this thread while considering an XC40 after a 3 year hiatus from my previous XC60.

I remember my experience before car wow way back in 2009. I stumbled on this forum for the XC60 and after local dealers left me unimpressed I found a contact recommended here for some one in Reading (I live in East London). Everything negotiated via email, even my PX was done and guaranteed via emails.No problems whatsoever, and I didn't mind the drive across London and beyond to get to the dealer for pickup. The sales was up front, honest enough and negotiations were easy. Went to the dealer for the final order though as the missus wanted to meet face to face the person we were handing a good chunk of money to.

At the dealer offerer further discount for taking out finance so even better.

If a sales person I dealt with was honest and upfront, then unless a local dealer offered significant discount (say over 200+) then I rather pay that little extra.

All with no haggling.
That does sound like a decent discount, though it looks like I'd have to be a member for 6 months before ordering
(I can see why)

The point I was more making, is that if there are dealers out there (us included) who are offering you a good discount "off the bat" without having to negotiate at all with us then why not give us the business? Often we can do all the paperwork by email including finance documents, etc, and deliver the vehicle to your front door. We even have product trained drivers who give a full handover, exactly like you'd get at the dealership, so the experience (other than not going to the showroom) is exactly the same....

Kind Regards

Marc
I had mine delivered from the above yesterday (Im based 100 miles from Northampton). All paperwork done by email, good discount, fair p/ex, delivery driver knew his stuff, no hassle. Very happy.

Can I ask if you got a discount off the car (dealer discount) and the VOC discount with free metallic on top?

Hi Marc


I find this really intersting and I'm mainly with you guys on this thing and would support the dealers who (hopefully) have a sustainable on line business model.

The problem for me would (and is always) the "extended test drive" I need to live with a car for several hours / overnight, tootling around (not necessarily driving the length of the country in it, oh and I dont do weddings in my spare time!) which few are willing to provide.

The best and bravest course of action would be to offer (hopefully via Volvo HQ) a nationwide test drive facility - Vauxhall lent me a car for 4 days a few years ago and didnt even follow it up!

Personally I would pay to hire the car for a week as long as I got the best deal with all commission thrown back in and a fair admin/sale fee paid by me for a transparent deal. Sadly I fear the car industry will be the last to "come clean".

There is no such thing as a T8 on XC40 at this time - There is the T5 Twin Engine (full spec guide attached)

First ones of these will be in the UK around Feb 2020.
