Volvo V40 R-Design D3

I know Volvo's don't get much love on here unless they're old/turbo/estate but I thought I'd post it up anyway! It's a MY13 Volvo V40 D3 R-Design Lux Nav in Passion Red with all the gadgets, it's a big improvement in quality over the 125 Ecoboost Fiesta ZS I had before. The 5 cylinder diesel engine sounds great too and I'll try and upload a video. The car completely standard and all I've done is remove the boot badges and add some clean borderless plates. I'm tempted by a remap to take it up to 200bhp but I'm more than happy with it as it is (for now at least).

Yeah this is one of the last 5 cylinder D3's, they changed to 4 in 2014 I think.

It's the 2.0 150bhp Scott, I don't think they do anything above 2.0 in the diesel V40's. Is yours in the S60 the 2.4?
Yes mate, 2.4 D5 auto. Its only the 163 bhp one but its got bags of grunt.

Its the wife's car so she doesn't need anything faster tbh.

I really like these!

My dad has the C70 with D5 engine, goes like f**k for a semi big motor!

Cheers lads, I'll have to get some photos of the interior, the chairs are awesome and the TFT digital dash is really nice to use too.

My sister has just got a V40 R-Design in Rebel Blue, petrol though.

Nice motors.

Nothing to update really, the car has had its 3 year service and two new tyres on the front last month. Here's a quick (crap) video clip of the 5-cylinder diesel exhaust sound.

We had these as area cars at work for a while.

Absolutely cracking cars.

We had autos and when in sport mode they went like s**t off a shovel.

Some of the bigger blokes at work used to moan the Volvo's were a bit small and that they were always banging their heads on the door pillar when getting in and out. I never had any issues because I'm slender and short.

Don't know why I never replied to this.

In that case, it's probably a detuned D4. Which means that a remap will take you to what a D4 maps to i.e. 200+bhp.

Yeah the stage 1 is 174 (to take it to the D4 map) and stage 2 is around 215.

I like modern Volvo's, they have definitely lost the "old man" image of years ago.
Enjoy it.
