Car enthusiasts don’t buy shock absorber kits or crucial suspension parts from someone on Craigslist or eBay just because they’re cheap. Quality is what’s important. Of course, paying top dollar doesn’t always guarantee quality. The market for genuine Euro parts isn’t as straightforward as it should be. We’re trying to change that. Here are a few things to remember before buying European car parts:
Spend time on research:
Several websites offer genuine and aftermarket car parts. Although eBay is the largest online market for new and manufactured auto parts, it isn’t the most trustworthy. Read reviews about different websites before buying. Online car forums are the perfect place to look for references. After you’ve narrowed down your search to a few websites, look for factors like estimated delivery time, ease of shopping, cost, etc.
Look for OEM components:
Sometimes Euro parts suppliers confuse people with vague terminology and wordiness. For example, parts that are not OEM but are likely to meet OE specification may include phrases like, “meets minimum requirements of,” “suitable for use only...” etc. These differences are subtle but distinctly different from parts that are actually OEM compliant.
Look for Brands:
We have worked hard to make World Impex one of the most reliable brand names in selling and supplying European car parts. Our strong reputation comes from a long history of happy customers, testimonials, and positive reviews.
Look for Discounts:
Most car parts suppliers regularly offer discounts which offer at least 15 to 20% off the original cost. Finding these deals can help you find the right parts at the right price.
