      When I experienced the B & W, it blew me away which is why I went with it for an OSD order that was cancelled due to Covid. The Harman Kardon was also good. Interestingly, its basic specs are...

      Thank you. After you adjusted the HK in your Volvo, did you find that it exceeded the Burmester or was the Burmester still a little better?

      You're right, but the R-Design costs as much as the Inscription. Even when you add the Advanced and Premium Packages (which I would have wanted on the Momentum) the cost is still a couple thousand...

      My budget is about 50k: I can build a GLC and V60 CC with the options I want right under that budget, when taking into account the European/OSD delivery discounts. I can't with the XC60 which...

      Thank you. Everyone has their own priorities. The regular Volvo seats are great. In comparing the HK to BW, I found that there wasn't a huge difference in electronic music (techno, pop) but a...
    6. Bowers and Wilkins vs. Harman Kardon vs. Burmester

      I recently had to cancel an OSD order due to Covid-19.

      While most likely I will reorder the same car I did for this summer (a V60 CC, though I will look again at the XC60) I notice that the...

      What else do you know about changes for 2021, for the XC40 and V60 CC? I just cancelled my 2020 OSD and will definitely be doing one in 2021, for one of these two vehicles.

      Well, I managed to cancel my order and get my deposit back, despite the fact that my car has already been built. So I'll be getting a 2021 for next summer. Thank you Barbara!

      I will really miss...

      We also have a Plan B for a Sweden-only trip (Stockholm, Gothenburg, Wilderness Road, Visby, back to Gothenburg). But a beach trip in the USA is looking likely.

      If the cancellations extend to August 15th I may try, and will let you know.

      Someone was able to do this, but their car wasn't built yet (they decided to OSD next summer).

      Mine has been built,...

      Audi also ended their program. This leaves Volvo and Mercedes as the only ones?

      I hope our trip in August works out, this seems to be the best way to buy a car. I wouldn't want our first OSD to...
    14. Does the Costco Volvo incentive apply to OSD?

      Costco offers a $2,000 rebate on new Volvos (I'm not sure if I can link it here but one can easily google it). The ad states:

      Volvo

      I would probably do the same if I were in your shoes. I've rescheduled my trip from June to August; everything has gone smoothly with that (tickets, hotel and delivery have been changed). Hopefully...

      Ours is set for June 19th pickup. The car has already been built. We already have our tickets, but I very much doubt we'll go. We got 3 tickets on the SAS flight because we switched to economy...

      I'm worried not only about the Swedes but also about my wife, who has a chronic lung condition. The plane ride would be risky; we're leaving form New York which is ground zero for this. My hope is...

      CR's road test is useless but the reliability data are good. With that in mind, however, it's important to pay attention to the details. CR doesn't have enough data for the V60 to rate its...

      My V60 is set for pickup June 19th and it was built March 19th. So there is a high chance that your cars have been built. If you aren't holding out hope to make the trip in June and don't want to...

      I didn't ask for the VIN number but I was told it does exist. I'm worried about my wife's health - she is below the risky age and otherwise healthy, but has a chronic lung condition. If the virus...

      So I was able to reach Barbara right away; she is very nice and helpful. My car, with the scheduled pickup for June 18th, was built March 19th. There is still a sliver of hope things will be okay...

      Good for you! Hopefully you can try again when this all clears. I signed all my documents because I did this earlier.

      I'm having mixed feelings about the whole thing. I love the car and will be...

      Ah, I read the original statement that came out a couple of days before the factory closure was announced on the 20th.
