First of all i am new to volvo i am an Audi enthusiast (future S4 owner). Couple questions.<P>1) what is a V40 compared to S40? (maybe wagon style) just a quick guess<P>2) She is gonna buy the S40 SE. Does this car have any downfalls?<P>3) what is the opinion of people in this forum do you love your S40's how is service? are there any big problems with the car?<P>4) i know she will never do this but the 1.9litre 160hp engine, what mods do you guys do thanks.<P>

My GF just picked up an S40 SE on Saturday! <P>1) The V40 is the wagon.<P>2) Not sure there are any real "downfalls". I think she would have liked full leather but the cloth is definitely better than the standard cloth. The major plus is how loaded the car is w/respect to the sticker.<P>3) Can't answer the service question...had car less than a week.<P>4) Don't know anything about mods....I'm too new to Volvos (now SAABs are a different story)<P>Add.) Price in relation to MSRP depends on what she's doing....if she's buying it outright or doing a traditional loan on the car, she'll want the number closest to invoice (26,6--). If she's leasing, than the lowest payment possible.<P>Cars.com is the only car website I found that lists the SE and has the invoice. <P>I personally love the car....the color is sharp and unique plus the additional "piano black" accents on the spoiler, front airdam, and inside.

I think it's sweet. Quiet, quick, and solid. As far as I know, all the S40s are 1.9 turbos. <P>The SE is a limited run that only comes in "Titanium Grey" which is like a charcoal grey with a light taupe cloth/leather interior. It's fully loaded with a big discount.<P>Have you not looked at them?
