"A SR" stands for the Geartronic transmission (5-speed for the 2.5T and 4-speed for the T6) and Sunroof.<P>"5" or "7" stand for the amount of available seats. <P>You can order a non-sunroof XC90 but only with the 2.5T engine and only with the 5-passenger configuration.<P>There will be FWD models available but only limited in the NorthEast, mainly for the Southern and SouthWestern regions. <P>Volvo Retailers will get a non-sellable model in early October for people to test-drive while the first models will arrive (for sale/delivery) in early November.<P>Confirmed <I>exterior colors</I>:<P>019 Black<BR>189 White<BR>417 Nautic Blue Metallic<BR>426 Silver Metallic<BR>446 Ash Gold Metallic<BR>447 Cypress Green Metallic<BR>452 Black Sapphire Metallic<BR>454 Ruby Red Metallic<BR>456 Crystal Green Metallic<P><I>Interior colors</I>:<P>C070 Graphite cloth/vinyl<BR>C080 Taupe cloth/vinyl<BR>C970 Graphite Leather<BR>C981 Taupe Leather<P>The available packaged options are:<BR><B>XC90 2.5T AWD Premium Package</B> (consisting of Leather, Power Passenger Seat, Auto Dimming Mirror, HomeLink, Rear View Memory Mirrors, 6-CD Player In Dash).<BR><B>XC90 T6 AWD Premium Package</B> (consisting of Power Retractable Rear View Mirrors, Wood Steering Wheel, Premium Sound System, 18" ATLANTIS Alloy Wheels).<BR><B>XC 90 Security Package</B> (consisting of Laminated Windows, Level Sensor, Mass Movement Sensor, Infrared Windshield).<BR><B>XC 90 Climate Package</B> (consisting of Heated Front Seats, Headlamp Cleaners, Rain Sensor, Air Quality Sensor).<P><BR><I>Individual options</I> are:<P>Center Booster Cushion<BR>Volvo Navigation System<BR>Bi-Xenon Headlamps (T6 only)<BR>Premium Sound System<BR>Rear Parking Assistance<BR>Cargo Protection Net<BR>Subwoofer<BR>17" NEPTUNE Alloys (std.

I saved the best for last! My Swedish source told to get ready for an XC90 R (MY2004). It is all but a done deal, the only question is whether it will have a V8 or the S60R/V70R engine. Volvo (US) executives are pushing for the "R" engine rather than the V8. <P>Yannis<P><BR>

So no Bi-Xenon for the 2.5T in the US too. I can understand wanting to limit the SKU's available but why pick something like Bi-Xenon headlamps when they're offered on virtually every other high end vehicle?<P>Pat<P>

Its most important feature is the "laminated side windows". Tremendous feature. I felt like you back in 2001 when I ordered my car and now I have seriously regretted it. I wish I had appreciated this package more.<P>Yannis<BR><P>

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Originally posted by [email protected]:<BR><B>Thanks for the info Yannis. I wonder how many FWD XC90s they'll sell? <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"></B><HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>I think you might be surprised. I know a lot of people that live in my area who have purchased FWD RX300's, because there is really no need for AWD around these parts. Also, there are quite a few SUV's and GJC's running around that are not 4x4 models, etc. Especially since these vehicles are slower and less fuel efficient. If I bought an SUV, I would get AWD, but for a lot of people, it just doesn't make sense.<P>-Drew

The <B>Security Side</B> glass is fine, and it should be <I>standard</I> as it is on the current 80 series, but the motion and inclination sensors are the useless parts. <P>
