I don't know if this will help you but I bought a 2005 S40 T5 AWD for $28.000. The car is equipped with the premium package, 6 disc cd changer (not premium sound), heated seats and metallic paint. I ordered the car for delivery in europe through Volvo OSD but, I work in europe for a U.S. based company. When you check the OSD price list compared with state side MSRP you will save.

Volvo Orange County (CA) was good to us. Our 2004.5 T5 with sport, premium, 6-disc premium sound, about everything except navi or climate was 27,200. Dont know if I could have gotten in for less, but I was happy with the price.
I've purchased and leased before, and this time was the easiest, and as a bonus the sales guy was not creepy. And I dont work there

Just got my new 2005 S40 T5 Monday. Yes, I got it for $25,600. Leather, heated seats and driver side memory seat. First, I ordered the 2.4i with the premium and climate packages but after I test drove the 2.4i and the T5, I changed it to the T5 for little more money. I oreded my car through the Oversea Military Sale and pick up the car in the US with no charge. Happy with the car, the price and the dealer here in the State. Financed through the credit union (3.9%)

OSD can not be combined with any other incentives. The price is heavily discounted already.

There is a lot of OSD related postings here as well. This is truly amazing program.
You can search for my postings on XC90, S40, S60 and S80 boards, and then, track the threads backward.
I am one of the OSD cheerleaders here. I've done it twice and planning for the third one in the near future.

Honestly, in my experience, dealers do not like trade in conjunction with the OSD, period.
They do not make much with OSD, just a fixed fee, so they will offer some ridiculous price for the trade-in.
Remember, you do not buy car from that particular dealer.
But you can ask. In my case they were agreed to buy my old car out at the final hand-over (when my new Volvo will arrive and I will pick it up from them), but the offer was laughable, if not offensive.

Your deal sounds great. Did you get special military pricing?
#43 of 698 2005 invoice pricing
Aug 15, 2004 (9:38 pm)
I am looking at a S40 24i with premium package for $25.5K. Does anyone know where there invoice information available online to compare this price to actual invoice?

Yes, but you don't have to be a member of the arm forces. However, you need to be an DOD employee working oversea. Contractors are OK I think...

I'm not so sure (that you don't have to be a member of the arm [sic] forces to qualify for Military OSD program) of that. At the following URL, the Military OSD program is described: http://www.volvocars.us/FinancialServices/Overseas/Programs/Milit- ary.htm In particular: "To be eligible for Overseas Delivery as part of our military program, you must be a U.S. resident and an active-duty member of the armed forces who will be stationed abroad. You are also eligible if you have been stationed abroad for at least 140 days." Note the mention of active-duty member of the armed forces.... There are different I.D. documents for active duty members of the armed forces than for civilian employees of the U.S. Department of Defense.
