vlvworld.com aces with me

I just finished installing some new brake calipers and rotors on my
240. I had ordered some new rotors from VolvoWorld (vlvworld.com about
a month and a half ago and they arrived promptly.

Unfortunately, when I got around to doing the brake job, I didscovered
that the calipers were in pretty bad shape and needed replacing as well
and since VolvoWorld didn't have any listed at their website, I tried
to get them locally.

I ordered a pair of calipers about a month ago but the big box chain
store somehow ended up getting me two of the same instead of a right
and a left. Four re-orders and a month later they still couldn't get it

I gave up on that retailer and went to another supplier yesterday
(further away from my home than the first store) and had they one
caliper in stock, fortunately the one I needed.

So I didn't get around to installing the rotors and calipers until late
this afternoon.

When I opened the box from VolvoWorld I discovered a bag of M&Ms
stashed between the two rotors. This, in addition to Volvoworld
charging me only $20 for shipping, even though the postage sticker on
the box showed that they paid $43.80 to ship the package to me.

Not only that, on the Customs declaration sticker, VolvoWorld declared
the value of the rotors to be $12 each, which saved me a fair amount on
cross-border duty charges and federal and provincial sales tax (15%) .

The bag of M&Ms was the straw that broke the camels back and compelled
me to post this message. Three thumbs up for VolvoWorld.
