Cool Touch up paint?

Was it used by Leonardo or Michaelangelo or Picasso or somebody famous?
$15.60 for a two bottle kit???? New to Volvo, so is this just my first taste of
Volvo parts prices? If so, I'm not too happy.

Well, JM, at least this one has the 100K CPO warranty which I hope will spare me big hits for the next 3.5 years, 80K miles. Years ago, I owned a 318i BMW and quickly got tired of $100 oil changes and essentially visual inspections. I hope I'm not back in that deep valley again!

BTW, a Geo Metro? That was the only rental car I ever pulled over in and raised the hood, figuring a spark plug wire had become disconnected. (It was an automatic, too).
Little did I know the thing only had 3 cylinders to begin with. You shoulda seen me scratching my head looking for the 4th plug wire! Pretty car, though, in a metallic grayish green. Tons of room inside considering its small overall size.

Yeah, I love my Metro. I don't need a big vehicle to make up for any shortcomings.

The last time my Volvo broke down, if I had to pay someone to fix it, I could have bought 2 Geo's for that price. The little car gets lots of attention since it's all modified for fuel economy. Wait until I get the rear wheel skirts installed.

Honestly, if you go to the dealer for everything, they YES, get ready!..I don't go to the dealer for ANYTHING. I learned fast that if I did, I was going to be broke all the time. A few of us on here use this site for parts... They offer factory parts at a HUGE discount!
