This is a simple tool I made which accepts input of a part number or name/search term, then searches for it on several Volvo parts sites, listed below. Open for suggestions for adding/removal of different retailers/functional improvements.

Volvopartswebstore - good price baseline, solid reference for diagrams
Google shopping - good for price comparison
eBay - if you need it secondhand or off-brand
IPD - good mix of aftermarket/performance and OEM stuff
FCP Euro - did I mention lifetime warranty on everything?
ViVA Performance - great for performance/cosmetic stuff and odds + ends (Shout out @George @ ViVA)
Rock Auto - good for aftermarket maintenance parts
Amazon - fast shipping
Tasca - good selection and price reference
Volvo US Parts - select your local Volvo dealer to see pricing
@SteingoldVolvoCars - great customer service + fastest shipping. Sponsor of Swedespeed, use promo code SWEDESPEED for a killer discount!
Volvo Cars Lisle - sometimes lower pricing
Volvo Parts Counter - another comparison point
Culver City Volvo Wholesale OEM Parts - another comparison point for west coast folks
Lehman Volvo York - nice OG east coast dealer
Riley Volvo Stamford - sometimes has good pricing

This script uses Chrome, if you'd prefer a different browser you can edit it in any text editor. Notepad++ is a great one with extra features, but any will work.

If you'd like to add your own line items, simply copy the formatting from one of the existing entries, perform a test search at the site of your choice, then enter the variable in the URL in the place of your test search term.

If you'd like to remove a line item for your personal script, simply remove that line.

If this helps you out, feel free to buy me a beer!

Download:
Windows
Mac/Linux - broken, seems like some more shell scripting know-how is needed. Will attempt to follow up on this later. Help would be appreciated.

Mac - someone test this and let me know if it works!

The file “Volvo part search v0.1 MAC.command” could not be executed because you do not have appropriate access privileges.

Where's your soundcloud? I mean Venmo?

Can you add Volvo Canada? I see a huge range in pricing of the same parts from different dealers across Canada, I've ordered from Newmarket Volvo, they usually have the best pricing even with shipping costs.

I think I'll keep the main one US-only but I can make you one if you want! Or show you how to edit (instructions in main post) if there are a few Canadians specific retailers people want, I can make one of that as well

Macs are more complicated...seems like it might be a multi-step thing for each person to get a shell script working. Also, lol added to main post.

Good idea, man, that's a bit of a time saver - thanks! This should work for any distro packaged with Firefox, but was tested and working on Fedora:

Code:
#! /bin/bash

echo "Please enter a search term or part number"
read part

firefox "https://www.volvopartswebstore.com/productSearch.aspx?searchTerm=$part"
firefox "https://www.google.com/search?safe=off&biw=2560&bih=1297&tbm=shop&ei=fyUdXZPaDrXttQbs-rPQDw&q=$part"
firefox "https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2380057.m570.l1313.TR11.TRC1.A0.H0.X1070+ti+evg.TRS0&_nkw=$part&_sacat=0"
firefox "https://www.ipdusa.com/catalog.asp?numRecordPosition=0&searchwords=$part"
