I have several questions I can't seem to find a definite answer for. <p>1. Has the navigation system changed? A dealer told me she thought they switched from having a CD/DVD drive to a harddrive and when you want to switch from US to Europe and vice-versa you have to take the car into a dealer and pay $200 each time you change systems.<p>2. Is keyless drive not available on the 2.4i?<p>3. When will the 2007's be available in the states? If I ordered now, when should I expect it delivered?<p>4. Is the 50th anniversary deal of 50% off packages only for military and only overseas? Anybody heard about this yet?<p><br>Thanks in advance!<p>Cindy

Re: 2007 S40 questions (CindyInItaly)

1) IMO the stock Nav is a tad expensive, need to be really lost a lot for at least 7 yrs even with todays gas prices before this becomes worth it. <p>2) NO CLUE<p>3) 1 aug , I believe<p>4) I wish they had a 49 % last year. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: 2007 S40 questions (V50_T5)

I think it is $2120 on the 2007 S40, but with the 50th anniversary promotion, it's 50% off like all other options and packages <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> (minus metallic paint).<p>Cindy

Re: 2007 S40 questions (CindyInItaly)

I'd skip the metallic paint and get those 50 % packages!!! including NAV! why didn't they have 49 % last year?!? there are 3 non-metallic colors red, black and white. others are like plus $600 which may or may not be worth it depending on how many red, black and white cars you've owned and how much you've loved / hated the colour.

Re: (CindyInItaly)

Oh, and they confirmed with us that the navigation system is a hard drive (not CD/DVD) and the US road maps come standard and you have to visit a dealer to have Europe added to the system (about 200 euro) <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> .

Re: 2007 S40 questions (GrecianVolvo)

Yannis! Just the person to ask lol Do you know if you can still hook up a DVD player? Have you heard that you can view pictures from the mp3 "plug" on the navigation screen?<p>Cindy

Re: 2007 S40 questions (GrecianVolvo)

Hmm...I hope that's not the case. I ordered an FY07 s40 T5 for July OSD with keyless drive.<p>My order confirmation said "Keyless Entry" instead of "Keyless Drive" so I emailed Volvo asking for confirmation. I got this reply:<p>"1. The "Keyless entry" is the same as the "keyless drive" option. The factory<br>has a different name but the same feature. That sometimes may happen, the<br>factory could have different names for the same option. "<p>I guess now I need clarification on what exactly the feature is.

Re: (treacherous)

Hooray. My MY07 would fit those qualities I suppose...I'm picking it up on July 31. (First available OSD date for 07s is July 16)<p>Hopefully "limited initial availability" doesn't translate in to "please beta test this feature." <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">
