Then again, I don't know many dealers that are moving $37K V50 R Designs with the Auto at the moment.......so 4 may be optimistic.

Re: 2010 V50 info (VolvoMax)

OSD is probably be the best way to order a V50 T5 AWD w/MT. Some terrific incentives being offered now - trip to Europe...2 nights in GOT (if you already own a Volvo...and pick up and drop off at the FDC), free Climate Package and Metallic Paint. I'm guessing that if there are any 'in-stock' or pre-built V50's (or leftover MY 09 V50's) - even 'better' deals to be made.<p>Buying from existing dealer stock may get you a 'better' deal - but no 'free' trip to Europe of the experience of OSD. <p>When we ordered our '05 V50 T5 AWD - MT was NOT an AWD option - MT only offered on the 2.4i - and only a 5 sp.<p>Not complaining about the GT - but didn't have anything to compare it to until we got our 08 C70 6sp MT. This was a rare 'in stock' OSD vehicle - and suspect that US Dealers would never order a C70 MT. I LOVE the 6sp MT - just wish my C70 had AWD...and a hundred more horses! <p><IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emcocktl.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emlove.gif" BORDER="0">

What are 2 position adjustable front headrests?<p>I'm hoping it means you can adjust them straight back away from your head a little. The headrests in the 2009 I tried were a little too far forward (e.g. pushing my head forward) for my taste.<p>GaryJ
