Hey guys and gals,<p>My girlfriend is going to place an order for a 2010 S40 R-Design sometime this fall, and shooting for a spring 2010 Euro delivery. We went to the local Volvo dealer and she liked the car a lot (as did I). The only thing we are having trouble with is the following. She does NOT want the standard Black T-Tec/white leather inserts that come with the R-Design models. She is looking for Tan (don't know the color/order code) but no one at the dealer could provide a leather sample or picture. From looking at the spec order sheet, it says black leather is the only other option on R-design models <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0"> Is there any way to get tan????? The black is way to dark for her taste she says. <p><B> This is the car she wants<p>(544-67-R0-071) S40 T5 FWD R-Design<br>(612) Passion Red<br>(5D77) Black Leather (can it be tan?)<br>(MMD) Multimedia Pkg<br>(000030) Sunroof<br>(000605) Xenon combo with climate pkg<br>(00762) Nordic Light Oak<br>(00142) Navigation</B> <BR><BR>

Re: 2010 R-Design S40 T5 OSD order question (quailallstar)

Michael,<p>Based on what I see for the 2010 order specs...there is not a tan leather available for the S40R. But, let me make a few call and see if there can be any exceptions.

Michael,<p>Just as a FYI, the top 5 or 10 OSD dealers in the US have pretty much carte blanche when it comes to building cars for their customers.<p>So it will definitely be worthwhile to do your OSD through Bob K (University Volvo, Charlotte NC) or William (Lawrence Volvo, CA) or Yousef (Don Beyer Volvo Falls Church, VA). <p>Best of luck with your order! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: 2010 R-Design S40 T5 OSD order question (Munin)

quailallstar...<p>After asking "the powers to be"...the answer to your question is..."there are no provisons for the tan leather interior in the R design S40/V50 models".<p>Sounds pretty straight-forward to me. When making the variants available for the Rdesign interior leather suppliers, there must have been some valid reason for not adding the tan color.<p>Munin...<p>The silver rails are now std on the V70 models and the black rails are optional on the V50 models. Again...there must have been some valid reason why that is. On this one...maybe our local Greek can give you a more detailed answer. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: 2010 R-Design S40 T5 OSD order question (quailallstar)

1. If she wants Tan leather inserts have a local apholstery shop do it after the car comes in, $500-800.<p>2. If she wants all Tan leather seating surfaces (the sides and all other surfaces are vinyl), many companies can make covers to match, or again have a local shop redo the seats. Have them keep the R-covers in one piece and sell them to offset the cost (many would like to upgrade their older S40's). Remember there will be a great contrast between the Passion red exterior, black trim and tan seats which will make it hard to resell later.<p>Personally I would love to have the R-interior in my '05 V50T5 just as it is. The T-Tec I do have has held up very well in Black. My '08 XC90 with Tan leather hasn't. The Drivers seat Leather has way more cracks in it than I would have expected in a car with 6k mi and less than a year old. The passenger side is still silky smooth.

It's very striking, if you're into a very striking interior.<p>I think what we're expressing is just a desire to have more flexibility, like it was in MY2008 and earlier. I would prefer T-Tec over leather too, if I could have it in the T5 AWD. I've kicked myself countlessly for not doing a MY08 order when I had the chance, but I had no idea what was coming down the pipeline.

<b>What you're looking for is the <I>Dalaro Quartz in Dark Beige interior (5CE1) (standard 2.4, N/A T5)</I>.
