My dealer just called this morning and gave me an update on the T5. When I talked to him Monday last week he said the vehicle was waiting to get onto a boat but this morning he said that the vehicle is in the UK! It needs to be delivered to the Bury St. Edmunds Volvo dealership about 30mins from here to be inspected/tested then from there they will transfer it to the dealer down the street from the base. I need to get my T5 insurance bumped up to 3 Aug so he can start the DVLA(DMV) paperwork.... so I should be driving this thing by next Saturday (if DVLA doesn't take their sweet ass time w/ paperwork)
We were expecting the T5 to be here around late Aug!

The vehicle should be @ the military dealership show room Wed or Thurs next week.... Thats when the camera comes out!

Re: UPDATE: 2010 T5 OSD (USAF 2010 T5)

I had the same feeling when I got my S40 T5 a few weeks early when I ordered it.

I ordered it in mid-March 2004, and they told me that I would have to wait until at least mid-June for it. So ok... I waited. In mid-May, they called to say that it was in their workshop undergoing a clean-up and pre-delivery inspection...

It came out to me on 28 May 2004. It was pure bliss for me... I was actually trying to avoid going home after driving out...


PS... don't forget to run it in first before you whoop your buddy's A6... *shhhhh*...

Cruise Control comes in handy... I do that all the time. But there's warning signs before the camera in my country so I know when to set it below the limit...

But as for mobile cameras... forget that method. Mind as well drive with cruise control at the limit wherever you go.
