Hey everyone, I'm picking up my S40 Monday or Tuesday, and I'm wondering if there are any specific things to look for at delivery with this particular car. (i.e. common problems with brand new S40s that I should watch out for before leaving the dealership). Also, any computer/software settings in the car that I should ask them to change right off the bat? This is the first new car I've ever ordered and picked up like this, and my first Volvo, so I'm new to the whole process.<p>I searched the forums figuring someone else had already posted on this, but it seems I'm the first one!<p>Thanks,<br>Jonathan

Re: S40 Delivery Checklist (JDS40)

Not much you can do prior to driving it for a period of time; check for any cosmetic flaws, check all your options are there (its happened to me on another vehicle before). You could ask if the dealer would not put any dealer stickers on the car, sometimes goes overlooked.<br>On a side note, when I picked up my vehicle few weeks ago, I had to enable the center speaker and the Dolby II via the console menu. I would of thought that Volvo would have all done by default.<p>Enjoy the new ride, I'm only 300miles into mine but its been fun so far.

Well if you ordered it, then it should have all the updates unlesss something came out between now and the time the factory started building the car. And even if you missed it, there's nothing that I can think of recently that has to be fixed immediately.

Re: S40 Delivery Checklist (benjr)

Thanks everyone. I'm looking forward to it... and I already mentioned twice to the salesperson not to put the dealer logo on the car. Hopefully it will actually make it through to the prep guy...<p>I'll post photos once I get the car -- it seems like there aren't many brilliant blue ones around, especially with the black interior.
