You should add <A HREF="http://www.partsforvolvos.com" TARGET="_blank">http://www.partsforvolvos.com</A>, better price than the other 3 if you include shipping. I purchased directly from bsr in Sweden, paid about 60 euro to ship it over which took two weeks!!!! If i had to do it again, I would probably go the partsforvolvos.com route.

Re: BSR dealers (darylkaiser30)

The word on the street is that IPD will have a soft loader out very shortly (a couple of weeks). Not to steer you away from BSR/PPC, but there will soon be options as far as the soft-loader tune kits. The best part is you can pick it up in person at their Portland headquarters. I've heard complaints about BSR's customer service.<p>- Tryg

IMO, i would definitely wait to see what iPD has to offer in the short time. they said they are making an announcement in 2 weeks, so it may be worth the wait.<p>personally, i would much rather have the customer service and tuning of iPD vs. BSR. <p>just my .02

Re: (darylkaiser30)

no but if you visit ipdusa.com and check our their specs on the current ECUs, im going to guess that they are very similar. just a thought.

It is actually being shipped from the Nordic Cars distributor in Middlesex, UK. Has anyone had experience with them? Can anyone confirm that I will not be charged the VAT since I am not in the EU? By my calculations, the selling price in Euros is 647.25 after the 25% VAT is deducted. This should equate to about $814 at current exchange rates. Not sure about the shipping charge though. <br>Sometimes I hate ordering things over the web... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0"><BR><BR>

Re: (darylkaiser30)

Alright, here's the situation: I tried ordering a PPC directly from BSR and got fed up with the order process, etc. Since I hadn't paid them anything and didn't plan on it, I went ahead and ordered one from PartsforVolvos instead (which has a very easy and user-friendly order process). However, now the problem is that BSR already went ahead and programmed a PPC with my ECU and it seems that PartsforVolvos is having trouble doing the same. So my question is this: once a PPC unit is programmed with a specific ECU, is there some sort of master BSR database that won't allow another unit to be duplicated with the same ECU #? <br>Please advise! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0">
