You want the best for your car, right? If needed, you’ll put in the 89 or 93 octane fuel. You’re always on top of oil changes, and you regularly perform routine maintenance. When it comes to replacement parts, the same principle applies: given the choice of an average part and an exceptional one, superior quality and performance are preferable.
Everybody is familiar with Ferrari. You know all about Nissan, and Mercedes-Benz is one of the best-known car brands in the world. Many international car brands are just as popular as many domestic U.S. brands, if not more. Overseas car manufacturers enjoy unwavering loyalty with American consumers for a variety of reasons: real and imagined superior quality, a general overall “trust factor” when it comes to reliability and, strange as it may seem, they’re more expensive. Big-ticket purchases like cars and houses are given extra value from the buyer when the price tag is a little higher.
Want to improve your truck’s performance X 10? Well, there are plenty of ways of doing so. Not every way is as effective as the other, and some of the hearsay you might be reading on truck blogs might be more of a genius hack rather than an actual safe way of getting more out of your truck. Fear not, we are auto parts pros and our job is to make your car work the way you want it to. We have some nifty tools in place in the form of parts we sell to help you do this.
In December I went and visited the Arnott factory in Florida and spent some time learning about what Arnott is working on for 2015.
The first thing is to discuss what is air suspension and how does it differ from traditional suspension? Where a traditional shock or strut just has a dampening mechanism set to a certain ride control feel, Air suspension uses an air compressor in combination with air struts and air bags to control the feel. Air suspension has a few advantages over traditional shocks and struts...
The automotive parts industry has been rocked by a Comcast – TWC type merger that will shift the landscape of the largest auto parts makers in the world. ZF Friedrichshafen AG, a German company based in Friedrichsafen, completed the purchase of the American auto part manufacturer TRW Automotive Holding Corporation several weeks ago for $11.7 billion plus debt. TRW, whose biggest customer is Volkwagen AFG, reported annual sales of 17.4 billion in 2013. ZF, who previously held the #9 spot on the largest auto parts makers list, will make the jump to number 2 with this deal. The deal was a highly needed move for ZF as they were feeling the pressure of much more competitive prices from bigger companies such as Denso, Bosch, and Continental.
Two Bosch employees are in the middle of a 25 week trek across the country. They are visiting some of Bosch’s most important distributors. However, this is not a normal business trip and they are not traveling in a normal vehicle.
These Bosch representatives are traveling in the Bosch Xperience Truck. This vehicle’s goal is to bring “Technology for the Future of Automotive” directly to those whom matter the most. In the back of the truck are six chairs, setup with state-of-the-art Oculus Rift virtual reality headsets. By using the device a person can take a journey through the air intake, fuel injection and exhaust systems.
We get it. Your car breaks down, and you want to get it fixed as soon as possible. Oftentimes, your car is your livelihood. Without it, you are unable to go to work or be mobile for work, or something similar to that. So, the thought of purchasing parts online rather than having your mechanic source the part for you may seem a bit tiresome and even a bit of a hassle.
What you don’t realize though is that your mechanic oftentimes will source the parts needed for your vehicle from local AND online vendors, the same places accessible to you. The mechanic will then tack on additional surcharges to create a profit margin for getting the part for you, and you will end up paying much more than if you were to purchase the part yourself...
