Hello folks - My name is Allen and we (Ron Tonkin Chevrolet) want to offer the Volt forum members a special discount offer on GM Accessories.

Accessory direct link > https://gmaccessories.dealertrack.com/GMWS/Default.aspx?CS=1&SessionGUID=002225A0-E649-440B-9FBD-8636FE68636C&strPass=&VIN=

Some history about me:
I started working at Tonkin Chevrolet back in 1982 at 19 years old and I am now the parts department manager here. We have a Volt on display and all I can say is wow this car is cool - I hope to own one next year.

So this is what I thought I would offer you fine folks - how about a 23% discount off all GM accessories on our www.Tonkinchevrolet.com accessory web site located here http://www.tonkinchevrolet.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=content.parts



You will need to create a log in to enter the discount code which is volt1. We are not set-up to take payment over our web site so you will end up speaking to me to complete the order (Allen) Monday - Friday. The nice part is that you can check out without any commitment until we talk and get payment from you on your on-line orders. Talk to you soon :cool:

No Sales Tax in Oregon too :cool:

For example you would save $80.50 off a GM accessory car cover. That's like a full years worth of gas - right?:)

Thanks for the cool offer.

I checked it out on a $100($99) item and it will cost me $15 in shipping to IL so after my 15% discount I'm still at $100. I guess that is compared to $108 or so if I bought it locally and paid the sales tax. I know there are other pros and cons that I need to consider (helping my state out, buying local, reciprocating "thanks" from my local dealer when I get service, etc). Interesting offer tho.

Thanks for stopping in.

Good point about the discount - I guess I should go in and tweak it a little more, Give me a few minuets to get the site to a 23% discount.

Allen

I thought I would note that the shipping is usually less than what it shows in the cart and I only charge what the actual shipping cost.

That is a pretty good offer. I like to see this service offered. I, however use google chrome as a browser, and have found no reason to use another browser on my macbook air, which comes with "Safari." However, this website of yours requires Internet Explorer (yuck) or Mozilla Firefox, (not as bad, but completely unnecessary as until today I've yet to find a site that doesn't work on Chrome.)

Allen,

Thanks for the follow up and the point about actually shipping cost. That means something to many buyer who have a pet peeve about the 'S&H' exorbitant charges that some people try to get away with.

P.S. Windows machines: As far as Chrome I just use the Internet Explorer (addon) Extension for sites such as these. No deal breaker for me. Extension: https://chrome.google.com/extensions/detail/hehijbfgiekmjfkfjpbkbammjbdenadd

That would be much better. The shipping calculator on the website seems to just keep adding shipping charges for each item as if all items are being shipped as a separately. For example, the first item is $15 S&H, second item is $10 more, etc. But since you said that actual shipping charges will apply, I placed an order.

One thing I wanted to ask is about availability. Last week I called local Chevrolet dealers and the parts guy said that some of the Volt accessories would take 10 days to get. I didn't see anything during the ordering process that would indicate that the accessories are not available to ship so my assumption is that they are available. If this isn't the case, you should probably mention this on the website.

Thanks for offering the discount to members of this forum.

Thanks for checking it out! The web site is mostly ran and updated by GM, I have the power to fix pricing and such. I can't show availability as that is not part of its function. Most accessories that are not in stock will take 7 days to us and yes 3 more to you = 10 days.

Also the site doesn't know how multiple items will be shipped, thus it still sells them as individual shipments. We correct the shipping before asking for your payment. We only charge shipping without any mark up and NO Handling charges will ever be charged. We are not into the business to make money off the shipping and we don’t make prices so low that we have to make up for it in the shipping as others do. Tonkin has been selling for over 50 years and we know what our customers want - and that is a good deal !!

I appreciate your offer. I am interested in changing the wheels on my volt, but have not been able to
get the specs (offset etc), anywhere at all. Do you have those specs or know a source that sells
compatible wheels.?

Hopefully you're planning to get wheels as light or lighter than the stockers...

I will look into it, but I don't have anything at this time.
Allen,

Any chance you would be able to order body parts for the Opel Ampera when parts become available for that car? I want their rear and front bumper. I understand the Ampera will be made here in the US, so I am thinking those parts would already be in the US. Is that sound thinking?

Given how a lot of articles written about the Volt/Ampera say that the Ampera is much better looking, I am sure there would be a good demand locally for these bumpers. I do know that some like the Volt appearance more, so no need to add that comment here.

No wheel specs in our cataloging - you should however be able to take a wheel off your Volt and measure the back spacing of it. Just run a strait edge across the back of the rim and then measure from the machined surface to the straitedge.
