So I went to my local Volvo where they always give me a great deal on parts.... and I went to order a fresh set of winglets for my car... and he informed me the price has nearly doubled. In the past I could get them for $125/each... and now I look to pay $220 each!! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Ouch, anybody else notice this jump in price?

Re: Winglet prices way up??!! (Elak R)

Ever seen the Comcast commercial where the guy says they can't "do anything about the service they provide, but they can do something about the price, we can raise it". <p>

CFW winglets are the next best option.<p>Buy OEM pads in the rear, but go aftermarket for front pads. There are many options, some as low as $60 for the set and the performance is as good, if not better with some of the aftermarket brands.
