hi,<p>I ordered a 2.5T back in november with Bi-Xenons. I have been reading the boards and it seems like there is have problems with orders coming withput them. My question is, Has anyone actually recieved an XC90 with the Bi-Xenon headlights and when did you order your car? Once again, I ordered it in november and it is scheduled between march and april. Do you think my car will be delivered with them? Thanx

Re: Xenon Headlights/Anyone Have Them? (XC90 Black Saphire)

I put down $100 and was placed on "the list" back in mid-October - I was #19. The 3rd XC90 to arrive at the dealership was a silver T6, Versatility, Climate, Premium - I was actually offered that car and passed because I wanted blue or black. The next car to arrive was a Black Saphire, T6, Versatility, Climate, Premium and it also had Bi-Xenons. Somehow, I was also offered this car (seems people ahead of me were being very picky about colors, options, nav., etc.) and took it at MSRP free rubber mats and accessories at cost).<p>Both the dealer and I were pleasantly suprised to see the Bi-xenons; he was not expecting any until later. He claimed the bi-xenon supplier "crapped-out" on Volvo.<p>Perhaps this is a sign that the bi-xenons are back on-line; but that's only speculation.

I also ordered 2.5T with Bi Xenon lights in mid November. Originally told car would arrive in mid Feb. Dealer called to tell me now looks like mid March. He said reason was Xenon lights causing delay. However, their dealership has gotten in some XC90s with Xenon lights, so something doesn't add up unless the supplier of the Xenons is not keeping up with demand. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emcrook.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Xenon Headlights/Anyone Have Them? (GrecianVolvo)

Can anyone comment on the use of piaa bulbs after market in volvo? I was told by the dealer this was a possible alternative, less expensive than the xenon bulbs being sold as an option?<p>I just saw this on the VV spy website<br><A HREF="http://www.eur.lighting.philips.com/automotive/eur/html/products_visionplus.html" TARGET="_blank">http://www.eur.lighting.philips.com/automotive/eur/html/products_visionplus.html</a><BR><BR>

Re: Xenon Headlights/Anyone Have Them? (webpj)

I love the bi-xenons on my XC90. Its our first experience with them and I can see how people that have had them before cannot easily go back to regular halogen. My questions is, how adjustable are they? That is, mine seem to be aimed a bit low on both low and high beam. Does tweeking them up a bit make it difficult for oncoming traffic?<p>I also like having the halogen DRLs. Referring to the discussion about the DRLs, I alos don't understand why anyone would want to disable them. Am I missing something? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emcocktl.gif" BORDER="0">
