Aftermarket car parts refer to the vehicle parts which are used when a replacement is required. These parts are available in the market along with the original company manufactured parts. When a new vehicle is purchased it comes assembled with the original car parts, but whatever auto parts are installed afterwards qualify as aftermarket parts. These can be installed when you want some additional features to be included or when some part requires maintenance or repair.
Garages set out your bill for repairs by stating the cost of the parts, and the cost of the labour to fit them. As we all know, garages make most of their money with the labour, and even car parts costing just a few pounds can end up costing you several hundred pounds once you have added on the labour costs.
Decking up your car to suit your tastes is entirely an individual choice. This is accomplished is by addition of aftermarket car parts to the vehicles or by replacing the already existing parts with aftermarket car parts. Aftermarket parts serve three purposes: some parts are only for boosting performance, some for changing the look and feel of the vehicle, and some for increasing the vehicle's efficiency.
The bottom line is that if you are tying to do your own crash repair and if you have the time, the knowledge and the know how, the car parts you need are at your disposal. Even if your car is older and even if your car is somewhat obscure, the parts can be found, and if you are determined, you'll find them.
When purchasing a new car from an auto dealer, there is something commonly known as "stock" which are the standard options provided by the dealer. These standard stock options include the essential components such as engine, transmission, wheels and also performance part. The stock can also include interior car parts such as lighting. Though many dealer do provide upgrades to a certain extent these are still limited for many car enthusiast, some extras can include alloy wheels, satellite navigation and other extras. Thus many people look elsewhere to truly modify there vehicles.
