Did you say MANUAL?!?!? That's welcomed news. I was afraid I was going to have to leave the Volvo family when it comes replacing my oh-so-fun manual transmission s40. http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

They'll be exactly 4 available in the US......at least that will be in dealer inventory.

4?!?!? That's crazy! Why bother? Hopefully, it's "4" to start with, and much more later.

4, but my sales guy told me they could be ordered as well...

I'm gonna try and get a hold of one of these.

Can anyone else confirm that there are really only 4 pre-built manual V50 T5s coming to the states?

You take me way too seriously. 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.

It will be up to the customer. Most manuals will be ordered

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.

Buying from existing dealer stock may get you a 'better' deal - but no 'free' trip to Europe of the experience of OSD.

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.

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!

What are 2 position adjustable front headrests?

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.

From the illustration it looks like they go up and down.

Is there any way you can share this illustration or a pic?

I hope this really isn't one of Volvo's main selling points, LOL.

Glad to hear the manual is coming back. I enjoy my geartronic since I do mainly city driving, but in a few years I am thinking I will pick up a used S40/C30/V50 so I'm glad the option of manual will be (hopefully) easier to find.

According to the product info, it is due to some up coming regulation.
