What do you all think of these? I must admit, I love the way they look! I think that they are a really nice compliment to the V70 guages! <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P>They are from <A HREF="http://www.heicosportiv.de/" TARGET=_blank>Heico Sportiv...</A><P> <IMG SRC="http://www.heicosportiv.de/Produkte/Interieur/tachotafel/aluminiumzierring_gross.jpg"> <P>-Drew<P>

Hey Drew -<P>Certainly I can find the picture on their site, but heck if I can find the price or anything else. How did you find it there? My German is just a tad rusty, so navigating isn't as easy as it could be.<P>*** never mind, I found 'em. ***<P>Let me know when anybody finds a discount importer of this stuff <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"><P>Thanks,<P>- Darell<p>[This message has been edited by darell (edited 03-05-2001).]

I don't think that they have a US distributor yet, but I am sure you can get parts directly from Heico Sportiv, just like S.A.M.<P>$93 USD isn't all that bad, but I wonder how much heart-ache you have to go through to put those trim rings on. It seems like you basically have to take the whole dashboard apart and pull out the guage cluster.<P>Those video screens on the backs of the seat headrests are pretty sweet. I bet those cost a pretty penny! <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P>-Drew

You are right actually, Coyote Motorsports does import stuff from S.A.M., but what I meant was that you can get parts directly from S.A.M., without having a US company that imports parts. <P>There is someone in the S60 forums that is getting lowing springs directly from S.A.M., without going through Coyote Motorsports. I wonder if Heico Sportiv will let you do this as well. Coyote Motorsports parts seem really expensive. I wonder if it is just cheaper to get the parts directly from the manufacturer (S.A.M.).<P>-Drew

Hey Rob, did you see how differently the arm-rest storage bin is configured in the shot you linked?<P>- Darell

Yup...<P>I wonder if the extreme angle of the shot is creating an illusion... meaning the armrest bin might be the same, but the the space forward is set-up differently than here in the US... meaning no drink holders(I don't see any)? Maybe it's shaped for those new ergonomic rectangular beer steins <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P>

I'm the guy from the S60 forum that ordered direct from S.A.M. I first spoke with Coyote but soon discovered that they're not a distributor but rather simply acting as a middleman. I inquired about a few S.A.M. parts and all would have been a direct ship from Sweden. So, at least for the parts I was asking about, they obviously were not stalking them. Maybe I'm missing something (enlighten me) but at this point I just don't see the "value-add" that Coyote Motorsports is providing relative to S.A.M. parts.<P>Following the directions on the S.A.M. site I printed out the order form and faxed it in along with my credit-card number. I ordered my springs late on a Wednesday evening and they were on my doorstep (SoCal) four days later. Shipping for the 24lbs. springs was only $12.00.<BR>In closing I should add that S.A.M. was very responsive (1-2days) to my numerous e-mails I sent w/questions. And they were answered in English.<BR>Hope this helps any potential S.A.M. customers.<BR>
