Hey everybody.<p> I've been in talks with one of my favorite parts managers and he said if there is enough interest in purchasing the Sport Steering wheel he can do some sort of a 'group sell' as he called it. He already has given me some of the best price quotes I've found for any OEM part I've ever needed, so I am sure with enough interest people could save some money. He said after I have gauged the amount of interest he can give me more details on what he could work out. If it ever gets to the point of a group buy discount you would be in charge of contacting him and paying yourself, so I am hoping this doesn't conflict with forum group buy policy as there isn't any way I could be scamming anyone. <br>Post replies if you are interested so I can get a rough tally on who would be interested (obviously dependent on final price, this is just so he can see how good of a deal he can cut). <br>This is from an actual dealership, not some third party vendor, so you would be dealing directly with a cool parts manager at a dealer, who isn't a stealer. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/eek.gif" BORDER="0">

Any way you could see if he would open this up to ALL Volvo OEM parts?

I'm interested, but have a few Qs:<p>Can you post the before group-buy price so we know what the discount is based off of? (Just to get an idea of price range)<p>I've seen the installation instructions for the wheel before, but has anyone done it? How hard was it, and how long did it take?

Re: (mattdoc)

Well, I'm not sure what his regular price is that he sells them for, but he is usually willing to match the price of any other dealer. From my somewhat extensive research it looks like the lowest price most dealers sell for is $400-450, list is $500 something. I am thinking his price totally depends on the number of guys who is interested, but I see reasonably somewhere from $350-400 each, but don't quote me or hold me to that price as he hasn't talked any sort of numbers with me, he just asked if I could get a feel of how many people would be interested. Most dealers won't even participate in a group buy discount that I know of, so I think this is pretty cool. One thing to mention though, I don't think he is allowed to ship outside the US, so any of our friends from Canada or elsewhere would have to have it ship to a US address and arrange shipping from there...

Re: (carreragt7)

Install is simple if you follow the factory instructions. Since AJ was nice enough to work THROUGH a legit dealer, all of you should have no problem putting it on yourself in less than an hour...<p>I've had if for about 6 months and absolutely love it. Get on board everyone!

Re: (Veefifty T5AWD)

To be honest I have seen all those ads from Tasca, but I think that one is a mistake since they have other sport steering wheels listed for $450. Wouldn't make sense to me, I am thinking that ad is supposed to be for the regular wheel. If not I am sure my guy would match that price if it is legit...

Re: (Munin)

hmmm, I swear a week ago I looked at those and there was no difference in two of the auctions (and it didn't say anything about R-Design). Either way, I say someone buy one and see if it is the right one. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Feeler on how many people would be seriously interested in a Sport Ste ... (BtownVolvo)

Nice, I didn't think Viva would have them so I didn't even look there. I can see if my guy can beat/match that price, depending on the number of people that would want them. I'll ask if he can give me an estimate on how many people would be needed for what price range...

Re: Feeler on how many people would be seriously interested in a Sport Ste ... (volvoNB)

Nice find. Never bought from there before: anyone have good experiences from there? And FYI, I already bought a sport steering wheel <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/cool.gif" BORDER="0">, I just thought I'd try to help everyone out since everyone has been saying they want one but it was too expensive. I don't care where it comes from, glad to find that this thread seems to have jump started a more in depth search for the best deal. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

Yeah, I bought from them twice. Parts are shipped straight from the dealer. Legit OEM parts. Parts.com is just the middle man.
