Yes, the spare is in a bag and yes, it takes up a lot of the trunk. That's why the spare is optional. If you don't order the spare, you get an electric pump and goop that will temporarily fix your flat tire but leave you more room for storage. Such are the dilemmas of the convertible driver!
The "armrest" in the back seat is not really intended to be anything but a removable panel to allow you to transport long items such as skis. You can even get an accessory bag to cover the portion that ends up in the interior of the car.

Interesting! On my 99, the "bag" is made into the opening into the trunk. Not an optional item, and the spare is under the floor of the trunk so it doesn't interfere with stuff in the trunk. Seems like Volvo designers went backward instead of forward!
#31 of 31 Trim on steering wheel and gear shift knob

I have a new 08 with every option except BLIS, and I ordered the aluminum trim. I did not want the nordic oak. Is there supposed to be aluminum trim on the steering wheel and the gear shift knob? Some photos have it, some don't. I have the calcite cream interior.
