    Thumbs up Volvo Canada Interactive 2008 XC70 CD

    Any other members receive their disc in the mail yet?



    The CD includes video clips from the launch period, interior shots and current tv ad used to promote the 2008 XC70. Personally, I found the music track on an alternate intro segment of this disc/microsite more appropriate and enjoyable than the uninspiring 'Wheels go around' tv jingle currently being shown which, BTW, can also be seen on the microsite.

    More details here at the Volvo XC70 microsite.

    The disc also offers an online contest for a chance to win $15,000 worth of travel anywhere on the globe OR one of ten $500 iTunes gift cards. Plus the first 1,000 people to register using the PIN number on the mailing label on the back panel of the CD will receive a $10 iTunes gift card.

    The contest runs from Oct 21 to Dec 31, 2007.

    I got my CD last month too, but I was surprised that there was nearly nothing on it. The video they included was seriously compressed and looked like it was intended for the web. If they went through all the expense of mailing out CDs, I thought they should have put some high resolution video files on it.

    I did like the wallpapers, though, which took up most of the room on the CD.

    Unhappy Trying to get this but Volvo has no idea where it came from!

    I've asked 2 Dealers and Volvo Canada ... must be a PR firm initiative.

    Is it worth the hunt?

    I am buying the car anyway - but am interested in the contest.

    Thanks!

    Default You Canadians.....

    Canadians must be suckers for CDs. Seems from the two posts this is exclusive to a Canada distribution. I've not received one.
