It is true that you can pick it up at certain European destinations, but the only one where there will be no additional charge is at the factory in Gothenburg. The others still have the $400 - $700 charge.<P>It is a great program.<P>

Wait a minute... save 8-10% (so about $4k), plus get an airline voucher, etc? Why isn't everyone doing it? I've not yet seen Europe, and this would be *the* way to do it. Is this a normal thing with OSD? I guess you have to wait weeks to get the car shipped stateside, but who cares about that part, right?<P>*Writes not to self: convince wife we need another Volvo...*<P><BR>

1 month to get it here in Jersey. Anybody's guess re AK!!! <P>But, yes, it is a winner to do, especially on the more expensive models. Savings decline, I think, on the cheaper ones.

Yes it is a great program but only under CERTAIN conditions which are:<P>If the car, here in the States, sells at MSRP or close to that, then it is a great deal.<P>If you are planning to go on vacation to Europe, then it is a great deal because it covers one airplane ticket and you do not have to rent a car!<P>But if you are just going to get a car that you can negotiate a pretty aggressive price here in the States and you are just going there only to save "a couple of thousand dollars", think again! Once in Europe, you will have to pay insurance for a minimum 15 days, which adds to your already monthly insurance payment, here. Think about the hotel costs, food, etc. Then, you will be without a car for at least 3 weeks or up to 5 weeks until your car gets back here. And if you are financing this baby, your monthly payments will start right before you are about to leave for Europe, which means that you will start payment up to one month ahead without having a car. If you add all these expenses, then your $2000 or whatever you saved, evaporate real quick!<P><BR>Yannis<P><BR>
