      Overseas Delivery order placed today!

      I'm super excited. Was hoping to match the price with a local dealer on an incoming allocation, but they wouldn't budge on the 2019 prices, so OSD it is! They're estimating September/October right now, I'll try to keep the thread updated with dates as time goes by for anyone interested in how long this process takes.

      Congrats! It's a great way to get the Volvo you want. We've enjoyed it so much we've done it 3 times with Volvo (and a better experience than what Porsche offers, too). It's not just getting a new Volvo, be sure to plan a nice vacation/trip around it to make it that much more worth while! Now the excitement will only build over the next few months (that's the hard part and of course after you drop your Volvo for home shipment, it'll build up more anticipation at the end of your trip).

      You're going to love the OSD! You'll love the planning, the trip and the vessel monitoring waiting for second delivery! Catch you over at the Overseas Delivery Forum!

      Congrats! There is something special about doing OSD. We enjoyed it very much. If we buy another Volvo, we'd want to do OSD again. Hope you are aware of the OSD sub-forum. There is a lot of fun and useful info there.

      The only thing I'm worried about is getting a rock chip before I can have clear bra put on!

      Don’t worry about that! Roads there are cleaner and you’re far less likely to get chips. Plus drivers are more aware and skilled, speeds can be higher, and overall an enjoyable driving experience.
