Most of us get all our car repairs done at the local garage, or if you're lucky, you might have a mechanic or car fanatic neighbour who can help you out.
You will find plenty of specialty parts dealers of virtually any make and model. For example, if you are looking for brand new side car panels for a 1991 Eagle Talon, you are probably going to find them. You may have to dig a little, and they may or may not be expensive, but they are out there waiting to be found.
After market car parts is a fast growing business in the USA. Many car enthusiasts love to make their car unique and stand out from the crowd by making modifications to the original. Though due to the limited options given by car manufacturers some look elsewhere. That is where aftermarket car parts come in.
The auto parts bought from these stores have already undergone testing in many cases and the prices are lowered primarily by lowering overhead and reducing the profit margin. This allows such dealers to provide cheap auto parts, often at over 15-20% discount, and sometimes even more. The benefits of getting these parts over seemingly cheap auto parts are obvious. The parts are tested, and can be returned in case of defects. Since these parts are new, they often last far longer than used parts and provide optimum performance. As such, there is no danger of the hidden costs often associated with used car parts. These stores are often found online far more than offline since the overhead of running an online store is far lower than a brick and mortar business. Searching online for "cheap auto parts" and "discount auto parts" may yield some good results. However, be careful since many places online are auctions for old used parts, not discount stores for new parts at lower prices than others.
For many years, new OEM parts were the only options for servicing and repairing cars. Today, there are still many car parts such as Brake Rotors and Brake Pads that wear fast and are cheap to purchase and it only makes sense to purchase the new auto parts. However, for the more expensive ones, you can check out the options. New manufacturer parts are either manufactured at the car manufacturing plant or outsourced to off-shore metal fabrication companies especially in far east countries like China. They are made with a certain level of quality standards.
