      My New XC60 (OSD)

      I've been meaning to post this thread but got delayed a bit because as soon as I got back from Sweden I had some pre-arranged travel for work, but I'm insanely happy with my new XC60.

      Although some of you may know this (from various other posts), but my partner and I both ordered Volvos through the OSD program and wow, what an experience! For those of you who haven't tried it, its an absolutely first rate program and we were both very pleased. They nailed the little things that make you smile, such as paying for tolls within Sweden and valet parking at the Radisson.

      Ok back to the car: I ordered a 2015 XC60 Premier Plus AWD T6 with BLIS, TECH, SPORTS, Xenons & Heated seats/steering wheel. I chose Twilight Bronze with the two tone Blonde/Black interior, as I fell in love with that exterior color at the dealership. I love efficiency, but more than anything I really wanted the T6 inline 6 cylinder as I've always had a crazy attraction inline 6s. And since we live in Oregon the AWD will come in handy for quick trips to the mountains, etc.

      Ok, on to the pictures:

      Beautiful. How much extra does OSD actually cost?

      We did OSD in 2011 and it was fantastic. I either missed the tolls and valet parking or they are new. Either way another nice touch.

      When we did it the cost of the car was essentially the same as the best price I got here in the states give or take $100. Then you got to pick exactly what options you want without worrying about packages and, of course, a vacation for two to Sweden. We ended up driving 4500 miles around Europe returning to the factory and the car was shipped from there. The trip of a lifetime except that I hope to do it at least once more.

      Congrats on the purchase. LOVE the exterior color. I was looking for one in that Bronze before I got fixated on the RD models

      I love that color as well and really wish it was available for the RD. Congrats on a beautiful ride!

      Cost of OSD

      Its actually less and Volvo provides two roundtrip tickets to G'burg, one night in hotel, 2 weeks of insurance while in Europe and free shipping (no destination fees) back to the USA ( and a few other little extras). What is priceless about this is the experience! We are good with vehicles now but we are anxiously awaiting for the arrival of the next V40/XC40 which will be our next OSD car.

      2018 XC60, OSD T5 AWD Inscription/Denim Blue/Blonde - Adv, Conv, Vision, Heated Wheel & F/R seats.

      Thanks. I can't wait to get it back. My XC just crossed the Panama canal on its way to Port Hueneme in California on the 26th. Then I'm sure waiting for it to travel up to Oregon will be even more difficult
