I was wondering if anyone knew of a dealer that had been allocated an 07 C70 that they have not sold already. <p>My local dealer (In Louisville KY) was allocated 1 07 and has already sold it. I contacted several other dealers and they have not recieved any allocation yet. I am on a waiting list with another dealer so that once he recieves his first allocation he can change it to meet the specs of teh one I am wanting.

Re: How does Volvo allocate cars for 07? (Infinite)

07 allocation went out Wed. At least it did in the Western region.<p>All the 07's we have been allocated are spoken for.<p>Chances are, you are going to have to get on someones list.<p>There should be another allocation in a couple of weeks or so.

Re: How does Volvo allocate cars for 07? (GrecianVolvo)

Thank you so much for the replies! I called my dealer as soon as I read both replies and found out that my dealer had recieved his alocation as well and he had already configured the car per my specs. He configured it this eavening before leaving the office and was waiting until tomorrow to call and tell me the good news.<p>One thing he was not able to change was the color. He said that the pearlecent white was not available. He is going to e-mail his rep at Volvo tomorrow to see what the problem is. <p>Does anyone have any idea's why white would not be available?<p>I am so exicted to finally have one marked for me. Now if I can just get it in White I will be even happier! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

Horrible?? I like your comment.<br>Infinite, you'd better not go to Yannis' showroom. He won't sell you the white one you dreamed of... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

Yannis, What color combination do you think looks best on the C70.

Re: How does Volvo allocate cars for 07? (T5_awd)

I have finally confirmed my order for the Pearlecent white with Calcite Cream interior. It is schedulled for a Jan/Feb 07 Delivery date. That is painfully far away, but well worth the wait for the pearl white in my opinion. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">
