    Genuine Volvo, every time. Send a pm to Rufe on this forum, he works at FRF Volvo, Swansea and does mail order parts with a healthy discount.

    Hi,

    The Volvo plugs are good (Bosch) but the NGK are better BKR7EVX or BKR7EIX..........we stock the all (Volvo and NGK).

    Regards,
    Hamish.

    hi davew. I work for a main dealer (FRF Motors Swansea) and supply genuine volvo parts at a discount. I can tell you that the retail price for the T5 plugs is 40.49 inc vat for a set of 5 (don't know how you had 6, was that a typo or were they for a 6 cylinder car, therefore a different plug?), but obviously there are dealers out there (including myself) who will sell them for a lot less than that retail price - though there are also dealers who i know of who incresase the price by a small percentage over retail. From the people I talk to and do business with every day on various forums I know for a fact that not everyone has a local main dealer willing to sell the genuine plugs for less than 30 all in (including postage and packaging), though if you are fortunate to have a tidy local dealer willing to give this sort of discount to you then of course thats a good thing.

    Hi, My plugs were for a T6. There were six in the packet and had turbo written on it.

    ..

    Just found the invoice they were actually 21.60 plus vat. part number 8642661.

    I bet you going to tell me you can get them cheaper now lol.

    I have used you guys before (bought a set of front disks and pads a couple of weeks ago) and can say that you provided excellent service. Goods arrived quickly and very well packed and would not hesitate to reccomend you to anyone one the forum.


    I wish I never started this now. I really dont want to pull business anway from anyone. Think I just wanted to highlight the fact that main dealers are often over looked as they are presumed expensive but its always worth a check first, even if they go back and give an alternate supplier the chance to price match.

    no dave i agree its a good point that you raise, the dealers can be cheaper than factors, i see it from time to time.

    By the way the retail price on your plugs is as you said 21.60 plus vat, which is 24.84 inc vat, i sell those same plugs for less than 20 delivered, so you are right, it does pay to shop around lol

    (mad though why 6 plugs for the T6 are less than the T5 set... thats avolvouk thing though, not the dealers)

    Like the other guys have said.

    Branded Volvo from the dealer. Nowt fits & works like what's supposed to be there.

    No axe to grind. I drive a D5 . . .
