I asked to check out the headlights on another S40 R-Design because I'm excited for the Xenon headlights and he told me that my car wasn't going to have them because they come with standard halogen lights...WTF!? How is Volvo not going to put Xenon's onto every vehicle especially an R-Design. But being this car is custom built I didn’t add the feature, but then again there shouldn’t be a choice. They should all come with them!<p>I was kind of pissed at that moment but he said we can add them on for another $437. So I added them, and now the car will come with Active Bi-Xenon Headlamps (bending lights, started in 2009). But anyways....yeah, what's up with the halogen thing....not cool. <br> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthdown.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>

For while back HID's were supposed to come standard on all cars in the US but i think people protested it... apparently people that dont have them feel blinded by them <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> Lame lol.

Xenon envy... some of my friends have it now that my 6000k fog lights are brighter than their high beams! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Dude, good call on adding that now! It's not simple like us in the 05s to switch to factory Xenons (buy the correct headlight housings and you're off). I was at the dealer looking at the ABLs and there is a 4th position on the headlight switch!! It goes: 0, Parking Lights, Headlights on and then Active Bending Lights On. So awesome! Be sure to post up a ton of pictures and a video of the lights actually turning. My buddy has that feature in his 335 and I absolutely love it!

It's unnecessary. <p>Sharphid.com for the kit.<p>Oh and...400 for bi-xenon? Damn the option for the earlier S40s was like 800.

<u>It is $800 but the Climate pack is free and with it the lights are $437 and w/o the Climate pack it's $800.<p>But I wasn't trippin' about the $437 because the Premium Sound was free.99<br>I really got hooked up on the price for this car being military. I noticed other S40 forums having a topic about how much they paid for their car but I don't want people to think im a rude bastard so I never started one.</u>

Re: (Veefifty T5AWD)

I'll start a topic once I can get the receipt on the computer and online. But ya'll have to be willing to state your price.

Re: (USAF 2010 T5)

I think a lot of us bought ours used, so our price will be like half of retail. These cars depreciate hardcore. My car has all the options including Nav, aftermarket body kit, some Heico stuff, etc and I got it for less than half of the $42k that the original owner paid for it. I don't think I'd ever buy a brand new Volvo, I will always wait until I find a used one because I don't want to eat the depreciation: if I was going to spend $30-40k it would be on an Evo or something else that has more power stock than what most of us can get modded.<br> Military discounts are nice, I am interested in hearing how much you paid. I've got some buddies in the marines and army who have bought some super nice cars (corvettes, g37s, etc) with the discount...
