Just ordered up a painted rear spoiler for the V50 (OEM) and the cross bars from Bob and Stamford Volvo. Gave me a great deal, got both shipped for $400! Pretty psyched to get the spoiler on there, should add a nice touch. <p>FYI: Stamford Volvo is an authorized Heico dealer. Their ebay store (transatlanticvolvo) is also great and pricing is unbeatable! Highly recommended to deal with. <p>Hurry up UPS man! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

While I agree they are a great store, I disagree on their ebay name: it is 'transatlanticmotors' <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"><br>I've bought a few things from them in the past.

Heico dealer huh, they mark up the parts even higher than Heico's store has them for?

To be honest, I don't think their prices on Heico products are any less than direct from Heico. I called and got a quote for some Volutions and it was the same (or more) than Heico quoted me. Every now and then they have some used parts they put up (OEM and aftermarket) from cars they have received in trades or whatever, and they give reasonable prices on the used stuff. They are great for OEM stuff.

Just been keeping my eyes peeled for a Heico front lip. If i have to buy it new so be it just will have to hold out until i get the lip kit and spoiler as well.

nah, just buy one of my lip kits...it will be pretty sweet looking when finished, and less expensive than Heico. And there will be a CF splitter option. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">

Remember you might have the same lip as members on here, but the chance of someone who owns an S40 off of swedespeed having the same lip is basically zero. And there will be 3 different configurations and you can customize it via color, etc. so you can still have it unique. There are quite a few members with the Heico one, they just don't post as often. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">

I bought sport pedals from their ebay store, the pedals were drop shipped to me from NJ and sent via UPS overnight ( shipping was $8).

LOL. I don't know about the ABS, as that would require some super expensive machinery that I am not sure I have access to, whereas the CF and fiberglass I can do in my makeshift shop. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> It could be an option in the future though...

Fiberglass with carbon splitter would be cool. I prefer polyurethane since it doesnt crack as ive had my fair share of cf lips and im super careful yet they all have been cracked <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> lol

I guess I was in a hurry to leave. For OEM parts, their prices seem great! I'm also posting since I had a bad experience with a competitor in ebay- Red Bank Volvo.
