New Pricing Tool @ FCP Euro!

Post by FCPEURO »

All,

We've been working on a small project behind the scenes to create a useful tool for the community. It's called Part Cart and it allows you too look at pricing on any part from just about every major vendor in one easy to read view:

http://partcart.fcpeuro.com/

It's currently in Beta version and it still needs further development but we were interested in getting some feedback from the community to see what people think about it.

Let us know what you think!

For me it's always cumbersome to find part numbers, so I probably would not use something like this. I depend on catalogs that guide me through based on my year and model car, like FCP Euro's current approach. Once I'd find aomething I need in the catalog, I guess I would also have 'a' part number but it seems like different vendors use different numbering systems so not sure about what number I am dealing with at that point. Also I'd assume that the prices quoted in the FCP Euro catalog would be the best you can offer, so why would I then go to this site to see if I can get the part cheaper elsewhere. My 2 cents, I probably don't get why you are developing this.

I tried it out on a part I ordered Sunday and found a better deal option than the one I had already chosen... I like it and will use it!
It would be even more useful than it is now if it searched the offerings of the dealers such as Tasca and Volvo parts of Lisle.
1997 855 GLT (Light Pressure Turbo) still going strong. Previous: 1986 240 GL rusted out in '06, 1985 Saab 900T rusted out in '95, 1975 Saab 99 rusted out in '95, 1973 Saab 99 rusted out in '94

In the BMW world, there is a website called realoem, where one can look up any PN using year/model and/or VIN.
Is there such a website for Volvo?

Here is the BMW website:
