Okay, we are now decently into our 200,000 mile mark on Project 245 (212000 to be exact). I keep seeing Volvos with the mileage badges of honor and wanted to pick up a 200K one for the 240. Anyone know where I'd go? I'm guessing a dealer, but I figured I'd ask.

Register if you haven't, go under lifstyles and then high mileage club.<BR>

What cracks me up are the people who pay assinine amounts of money for used ones on eBay..... you can get them for <I>free</I> from Volvo dealerships.... <P>Meanwhile, speaking of people unknowingly spending 1000% more than they need to, a Volvo mechanic friend of mine is making a killing with his Volvo-related items on eBay, grossing near $3,000.00 each month from the items he sells. His hottest-selling items? Volvo key blanks. Yep, amazing, isn't it? He gets them for about $1.50 - $2.00 each from Volvo, yet people bid more than $20.00 each for them, and apparently one of them (for a 740) closed at $32.00!!!<P>-he who stacks pork<P>

That's funny, because I used to email people sometimes to tell them they were about to pay $xx.xx for a free emblem. Usually only for really expensive bids. I've contacted sellers too, just to let them know.<P>I recall one guy bid just over $75 for a 100K, 200K, and 300K badge "set". It turned out he was from Europe and couldn't get them easily, so there is a market for that kind of stuff.<P>
