wow! kinda jealous of your pricing! here on the Gulf Coast dealer competition is minimal and getting a good deal is difficult. There are only 3 other dealerships within a 2.5 hour drive. However, if I wanted to get free loaner volvos when I come in for service, I had to have bought from the local New Orleans dealer.
They got me by the "you know whats" there!
I would have liked to have gotten the Climate Pkg, but since it gets below 35 degrees here maybe 20 nights a year, it wasnt really cost effective. I really wanted to have the premium audio system within the multimedia pkg.
I have the premium surround in my 2006 S40 and it is just damn hard to beat in this price range!

How long ago did you order it? I have my fingers crossed my delivery will be closer to 6 or 7 weeks instead of 10
#265 of 484 2011 X3 vs. 2011.5 XC60???

Any opinions would be appreciated. I spent 45 minutes fooling with the Sensus system and I was having trouble figuring it out. The salesmen didn't know how to use it. Maybe if I got the hang of it, I would like it.
I want to order a car and I'm stuck on which one.

I looked at the X3's and you get so much more for your money with the XC60.
I found the Sensus system to be WAY easier to figure out than the iDrive system. There are actually some really good videos posted online about how to use the sensus system, plus there are built-in tutorials within the sensus software that explain how to use different features.
do a google search for "Success with Sensus" from need2knowcommunity.com
Each video is about 11-12 minutes and tells you how to use each feature.

Agreed...the X3 is fun to drive but the XC60 is a better deal overall. Now the X5 is a different story, but way more expensive..this comes from a 10 year BMW owner of 5 BMWs.

We have a deposit down on the last 2010 XC 60 on the lot:
T6 AWD with moonroof with climate control package and booster seats in the back.
MSRP: over $40K
Our Price: ~$34K
Is this a good price? Also, what is everyone's thoughts on the longevity of the Volvo brand with their somewhat recent acquisition by Geely?
#269 of 484 2011 XC60 OSD price?
Jan 13, 2011 (1:37 pm)
I am going to buy a 2011 XC60 and want to pick it up in Sweden. The Salesman told me that on OSD you start with the msrp and then take the discount from that, as opposed to agreeing on a price then subtracting the OSD discount from that price. I thought that was strange since I bought a 2005 bmw X3 and did OSD. In that case I negotiated the price to $800.00 over invoice then subtracted the discount from that. Has any one done OSD, if so how did you negotiate the price?
The quote I got for a 2011 XC60 T6 with the following:
climate, xenon, convenience pkg., wood trim, metalic paint, and multimedia
Does this sound about right?
I know I might be able to get it cheaper by not doing a fixed OSD price, but the trip to Sweden is very appealing to me. thanks for any info. tom

So it looks like the price for OSD is fixed. Thanks for the info. Has anyone negotiated the OSD price? tom
