Auto spares

You may not be too worried about the exorbitant price of auto spares, especially if you have a fairly new vehicle that is still being covered by its initial maintenance plan that covers all auto spares. However, it is of interest to know that auto spares are extremely expensive. Because of the demographics of South Africa, there are an extremely large number of used cars on our roads, and this is a fact that is not going to change for many years to come. Even auto spares for some vehicles that are twenty or more years old can be extremely expensive, and there is one German manufacturer that comes to mind. However, cars do break down and parts need to be replaced with new or used "auto spares".

Fortunately there is a large industry in generic auto spares rampant in the country, some of which "auto spares" parts are distinctly ‘grey’ or pirate. There is also a large industry in second hand spares market that originate in breakers auto scrap yards up and down the length and breadth of South Africa, and though this type of replacement part may be frowned upon and even illegal in some other countries, in many third world societies this auto spares industry has become an important part of the economy.

Looking4spares: Used Car Parts

Some people balk at the idea of buying used car parts, but the used car parts industry has experienced resurgence of late, what with the exorbitant prices of new car parts.  Looking4Spares is your used part expert, so let us start looking for the parts you need today.

It may still be worth having your car fitted with genuine new parts bought from the agents as long as your insurance company or motor plan is paying.  However, owners of older vehicles still have to pay the same very high new prices for parts that owners of new cars do, and that kind of financial outlay simply might not be justifiable in view of the drastically reduced market value of an older car.

Certain factors also serve to inflate the prices of new spares. Common accident used car parts like fenders, bumpers, lights and bonnets are not always that expensive when bought new, because a lot of stock is kept on the shelves and the parts move out of warehouses at a predictable rate.  However, mechanical used car parts such as engines, gearboxes or electronic control units may cost a lot of money. Your problem is compounded if you drive a quirky, low-volume imported car and these cars’ parts prices may be truly shocking. Used car parts are your answer.
