I worked with the Overseas Delivery Specialist at Volvo Cars Walnut Creek, and submitted my worksheet on exactly what I wanted and how I wanted to take delivery, etc., on 19 May. Since then I've called a couple of times and keep getting the same answer, that they're waiting for an allocation, and I'm not even the first one in line at their dealership when they get the allocation. I want to take delivery of the vehicle in mid October and this is looking more and more like I'm going to miss the delivery window that I'm shooting for.

I remember seeing a post a while back about an Overseas Delivery Specialist who really knows his stuff and can make things happen, but I can't seem to find the right thread. Can anyone provide me with his contact information?

It seems that no one knows who the Overseas Delivery Specialist is. Too bad because I'm getting impatient waiting for the local Volvo dealer to get an allocation for me.

I wasn't able to find the Overseas Delivery Specialist that I had read about, but I started calling Volvo dealers within a reasonable driving distance from me and found one that had an allocation for an XC40 for local delivery that was not yet committed. He was able to get it reallocated for Overseas Delivery, so my order has been placed. It gets complicated on build dates and such, but my requested acceptance date for the vehicle in Gothenburg is 20 October. I'm getting one of the new colors, Thunder Grey with Blond interior.

One of the options, or accessaries, that I've included on my order is the Exterior Styling Kit, but I can't seem to find exactly what that includes. Can anyone point me towards what is included ?

PS The overseas delivery specialist that I worked with wasn't sure.

The front portion of the bumper, the side skirts and the back portion of the bumper. Here is one that I found, on a Inscription. On the Inscription you can't see the exhaust, but with the Exterior Styling Kit, it is added. Now, I dont know if those are real exhaust tips or fake (like some other manufacturers are doing). Also don't know if the Kit includes matching the color to the body. Like, is the side skirt color matched or are they all silver? (it would look silly on a black car if it is color matched)

take a look:

I went to that web site and didn't see the exterior styling kit. I was told that it included protruding exhaust tips (real not fake), but there must be more to it than that.

Below the front bumper has less black plastic parts. Same with rear bumper including the exhaust tips. There is a silver panel on the lower part of the side molding where it is supposed to be all black (Look at the 3rd picture)

And, I'm afraid that's all there is to it. (Exterior Styling)

Do a side by side comparison with another silver XC40. You will see it.
