    2011 Volve S60 front grill

    Dear All, Need to replace my damaged 2011 S60 front grill but was quoted S$650 by the agent. Checked around but no one carry any spare stock and need to wait for 2 weeks to indent and the cost is around the same (S$645). Hence checked online and found one US website supply OEM S60 grill at around S$380 (includes international shipping - around 10days). Like to check whether anyone buy Volve spare parts from voluparts.com before I pay the money thru google wallet. Thank you for the advise.

    My car insurance for NCV 50% + 5% is around $1400. Quite reasonable. Overall operating cost for S60 should be low as I have 3 yr maintenance package from them and with low road tax (1.6L), reasonable insurance and fuel consumption. I think it's quite a good deal.

    21 DEC 2011 COE bidding

    taxi operators will go in at the last mins and then we will see the real figure. Still too early. All depends on the taxi operators as there are not many ADs bidding except those conti car ADs. Based on what i see at the show rooms, only conti cars were crowded with people as they wanted to push up their sales for the 2011 ranking and gave out good discount. Conti ADs are also very agressive to bid the CEO and hence the CEO price should be more or less the same. taxi operators might take this opportunity to secure more COE for the next few months before surge in the CEO price. Hence the reduce in the car sale does not translate to lower CEO. i feel that LTA will make the neccessary adjustment to ensure CEO price increase gradually as there are limited road space. in addition, taxi operators also have their expansion plan and will secure more CEO in the next few months. COE price will only drop if LTA remove taxi bid from Cat A which is not likely. I am also waiting for the CEO bidding for my new car but as my is confirmed 1 bid, I hope that it will go sky rocket... no offence to others. this is just my wild guess and open for discussion.

    Finally decided to buy the volvo car mat and gps (garmin) at quite a good rate as the gps is demo set and come with volvo 1 yr warranty. Today is the COE bidding and hope that it will go sky rocket as my is 1 confirmed bid. Getting my car this weekend and will put up a review after that. Thank you all the bros for the good advise and enjoy the long weekend ahead. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year. Huat ah....

    Yes will join the Volvo sg forum shortly once i get the car. Agreed with u and might go for the mat but not the gps as it is to x. Can't wait to get my car next Sun and the sale girl told me the q is quite long as she tried to expedite it. Seem like volvo is doing quite well with S60 & V60.

    No free things as I was given a direct $1K off. volvo accessories is quite x... so get a direct discount is better. the rest could install outside if needed.

    Thank you for all the +ve input for S60. I am collecting my S60T4 next Sunday (1 bid COE) and still pending whether to go for the floor mat and GSP which cost additional $200 and $1000 (est can't remember the exact amount as my sale recommended me to purchase them) from Volvo. Any review on the floor mat and GPS?

    The price quoted is based on 1.88% interest. Not sure whether you need to take any min loan? You might wat to check with Volvo. If u wat I can forward you the sale person contact. She is quite accommodating.

    The rim is 17", i think 18'" is for the T5. Today in the showroom saw quite a few people looking at the S60T4. Have to Qup for the test drive and black colour (with interior black) was sold out (my prefer colour) and have to go for the ice white (last pcs also). So immediate paid the deposite and secure the car.

    not sure of the S60T5 but should be around $156+20K = $176 +- due to Cat B CEO. I think the norm is that nowaday people go for lower cc car to save petrol & road tax. Hence resale might not be so good for S60T5 so prefer to go for T4 which is cheaper also.

    Thank you bros for all the good input. Already paid the deposite today for S60 and waiting to get the car before New Year (likely on Christmas). Key reasons I go for S60 - Reasonable price (best value with the highest OMV of 35K as compare to the rest) - Sexy outlook (i go for the white colour with body kit) - love the interior trimming - Safety features - its a volvo - Better legroom as compare to C180 & BMW 318i - Cat A car and with 180hp Down side - resale might not be so good as compare to the rest but its changing with volvo resale branch setting up - brand image as compare to BMD & MB

    The subject is to buy car or to wait. So pls stick to the subject and give constructive advise. Don't take it too seriously unless you are FTs ... by the way i can afford the car just that i want to get the best value, same as all buyer. Anyway, typical Singaporean like to complaint. FYI, I just bought the S60 at $156K with free maint and some other items thrown in.
