If you are willing to order it, some discount dealers give you well over 20% discount. Borton (firstname.lastname@example.org) and TVK (Toyota Volvo of Keene, but I don't have their coordinates) come to mind. Borton gave me over 50% discount on some parts (but they used to give these discounts only to internet customers, I'm not sure if that has changed or not).
The best price on Nivomats that I have been able to find ( I've searched high and low) is from RD Enterprises in CA. Last time I checked (Late December) they quoted me $199.00. They come with a lifetime warranty. 1-800-663-2890 or www.shox.com

[From Wydon] Try Tony at Verrigni Auto and Marine.I just took a chance on a friends recommendation and ordered some stuff.When it arrived it was all genuine Volvo and he absolutely Killed dealer prices.800-888-6586 [Response: Mike Sestina] Tony has great prices plus Tony can get hard to find European only parts like the H4/H1 Swedish headlights for my 940. George Vacarri a Toyota/Volvo dealer parts mgr in NH [Editor: Toyota/Volvo of Keene] also has good discount prices, 1.800.445.6171 or email email@example.com But Tony Verreni can often beat George's prices

[Response 2:] About 18 months ago, I replaced
the AMM on my '89 240DL with a re-built unit from the following company:
Injection Labs, 1436 Industrial Way, UnitC, Gardnerville, Nevada, 89410,
Tel: 702-782-8544 Fax: 702-782-3481.
My unit failed after 15 months and my supplier told me that it had a only a one year warranty. I called Injection Labs directly and spoke to Kevin. He was very helpful and he sent me a replacement right away (no charge). I returned the defective unit. My wife's '90 240 now needs a new AMM. I called Injection Labs and asked if they sell direct, which they will. Kevin quoted me $150.00 U.S., exchange.
First option is to go through Volvo. Local dealers want $950 + core. Borton wants $750 + core. The local authorized Bosch dealer (recommended by Alex Rosser SB list member) has it listed in his catalog, but says it is not available at any Bosch warehouse in the US. He thinks it is manufactured for Volvo and sold through Volvo only exclusively. He *can* get it, but at an admitted "not good price" of $791. The other option is the independent rebuilders. In searching my SB files, Python Injection kept coming up as the source to use. I called them and found out that they carry the part, but currently have none in. So they could rebuild mine only if I R&R'd to them through an approve retailer. Not too bad of an option, except that I would be without the car for about a week -- Can't do that! The price from Fuel Injection Warehouse (a retailer that they use and recommended by an SB listmember) is $499. So are there any other options or avenues I should try?
For turn signal lenses and the like, try Matt's lenses, he has cheap used parts and will ship. See Electrical: Lighting.

and subtract from the next closest number
divisable by 10 and the remainder is your check digit (5). Hope this helps
- I worked at a Volvo dealer for 18-years and found that the Volvo check
digit always kept you from accidentally ordering the wrong part (did not
keep Volvo from sending the wrong part). Knowing the formula allowed me
to order parts that I read about in non-U.S. bulletins.
