The Volvo dealership in Preston wasn't a bit of use when I asked them for help, stating that the car radio wasn't 'on file'.

Having read about how helpful FRF Motors Swansea are on the same subject I gave them a call only to be told that I would need to bring the car in to them along with the ownership papers etc. I explained that I lived in Lancashire and so that was really out of the question.
This leaves me a bit baffled as to how other people in the forum could acquire a radio code via a phone call but I can't.
Hi Brian Morrison.....You don't need a code
the radio is coded to the vehicle so it doesn't matter if the battery is disconnected - it'll work when it powers back up.

I have just placed another order through FRF, and as usual highly helpful service and a great price.

Many Thanks

Default Ship wheels to Australia?

I realise we're meant to phone. However I'm in Australia, keep odd hours, so the business seems to be shut when I'm awake, and vice-versa. There's also no email address listed on their site - and - Rufe's PM box is full! All of which makes it difficult for me to phone, LOL.

So before I even try to find a way around that, I'd just like to know if FRF would ship wheels to Australia? Because if not, there's not much point me pursuing it further.

Basically, thanks to Brexit, I've noticed some things are now cheaper to get from the UK. It made me wonder if I could the wheels I'm after cheaper too.

(I'd like to price 5x 'Galaxy' wheels - part #: 6820001-3, and 2x wheel nut kits - part #: 6826820010-3, shipped to Australia via the cheapest freight method.)

Anyway, sorry for cluttering up the thread - I assume someone can delete it if need be - thanks for reading.
