Hi,

I ordered a R design Pro in mid June, to be delivered early September.

I have noticed that they keep removing spec from the car. The latest worries me a little, the Orange Safety key.

Has anyone got one?
Does the key function EXACTLY like the normal key? Particularly interested to hear if it remembers the owners seat position like the standard key. My wife and I had a Volvo S40 and loved the fact that we had our own keys, which when used, moved the seat, altered temperature and even the media to what the driver had set.
Also, has anyone changed the plastic bits as I think it is very cheap looking for such a premium car. if anyone has any pics of the orange key and any of them with different sides fitted I would appreciate it.

Thanks in advance.

FWIW, here in the US, we have two fobs. Both are black or very dark gray. Maybe the color thing is a UK "feature"? Also, unless I've missed something in scouting out the XC40, I've never heard about a Pro. Any idea about the differences between "only" an RDesign and an RDesign Pro?

Think the key issues is worldwide from 2021 models on.

The R design comes in 2 flavours in the UK, Standard and Pro, Pro gets 20"alloys, heated seats, heated windscreen, active headlights etc. It might be that the US ones are all "pro" and you dont have the standard there?

Doh!!!! I totally forgot three of these rascals. The two black keys have full authority (unlocks everything), the small black whatsit is the "sports" key - waterproof and unlocks the car (may allow starting??), and (guessing...) the orange key has limited authority (locked glove box IIRC). There's a fifth key without a fob. IIRC that's the valet key. BTW there are metal keys inside the black fobs. Handy if the battery goes flat.

Save Key #2 for the hottie who'll see you in this hot car and develop a serious case of lust. Woohoo!
