Aftermarket Auto Parts – What Are They And Where Are They Headed

What is it? An aftermarket part is any part of an automobile that is not obtained from that car’s manufacturer. For parts that are direct replacements, the vehicle’s warranty will stay intact.salvage auto parts

Many companies nowadays make auto parts designed to operate very similar to the original, and in some cases even better. Most performance parts are manufactured by aftermarket companies because they are specialized experts in that particular field.

Pros & cons? Whereby aftermarket auto parts are considered to be less pricier and widely available, they certainly boast a greater choice of auto parts to choose from with quality that’s equal to the stock parts or OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) parts if not always better! The greatest con of aftermarket parts is the lack of warranty. Also if the car owner is not familiar with a variety of available brands, the selection could be tremendous. The quality of auto parts can also vary with each maker.

What is currently available? Drivers can opt for aftermarket parts which can convert their cars into exclusive machines. Options range from aftermarket engine components to car body styling; car owners do not have to endure the car manufacturers’ installations anymore. Aftermarket auto parts can be employed for three distinct reasons: boosting performance, altering the look and feel of the vehicle, increasing the vehicle’s efficiency.

To cater to any or all of the purposes of the car owner, market offers a variety of aftermarket auto parts for use in brakes and suspension, electronics, engine, exhausts, lubricants, gauges, interior, exterior, wheels and much more.

Some of the most sought-after parts for the above categories include catalytic converters, cat-back and turbo-back exhausts, headers, muffler’s, fuel filters and pumps, torque converters, gaskets and seal sets, spark plugs, throttle bodies, alignment kits, gauges, lights and lamps, chrome accessories, transmission fluids, shock absorbers, seat and steering wheel covers etc.

Future of aftermarket auto parts? Although the aftermarket industry is packed with auto upgrades, entertainment items and vehicle flair, an increased competition from OEM dealerships coupled with the economic climate, increases in gas prices and fewer miles driven is influencing the vehicle owner’s behavior. As more and more vehicle owners are transitioning to do-it-yourself repairs to save costs, OEM dealerships are also becoming aggressive for post-warranty service work.

However, the demand and sales report forecasts that the light vehicle aftermarket is projected to rise 3.2 percent annually to reach $85.5 billion by the next couple of years and the dominant aftermarket auto parts market will outpace the do-it-yourself segment by all means

Escort Passport SR7 – A Review

The Passport SR7:

Price: the price tag is $799.00, making this a relatively expensive radar detector in our point of view.     Sydney escorts

Bands: this product detect all radar and laser signals (X, K, Superwide Ka).

Voice Alerts: voice alerts are sounded when a radar or a laser source is nearby.

False Alerts: The AutoSensitivity Mode reduces false alerts.

Features: Includes EZ-Programming, a feature that allows easy customization of the radar detector device, 3 High-Resolution Meter Modes, several low-noise laser sensors that provide maximum range against targeting laser guns.

Custom installed: the passport SR7 is custom installed, enabling it to remain hidden in the vehicle, not to mention the fact that it is more aesthetic (no need to attach it to a window!). However, this means it cannot be taken to a different vehicle.

GPS Technology: this product does not include GPS capabilities.

Detectable: the passport SR7 has no stealth capabilities.

Database subscription: Not relevant.

In summary: The SR7 is the predecessor of the Passport SRX, and as such, shares most of the same features the SRX has. When we compare both, it appears that other than the price (and some minor aspects), the main difference is the stealth capabilities which the SR7 lacks. However, considering it costs about 2/3 of the SRX, we consider it to give roughly of the same value for its cost. It is our opinion that it may be worthwhile getting one of the cheaper models that have equivalent capabilities (i.e. the passport 9500ix) – the only disadvantage would be that these would not be custom installed and would have to be manually attached to the windshield. Is the convenience of having a custom installed radar detector worth it? This is a matter of personal preference. If this matters to you, then the SR7 is definitely a good radar detector to have (in fact, got 5 out of 5 stars in the Escort Radar website). Our total score for this product is 4.0/5.0 stars.

In our website, Escort Radar Detector Review we aim compare various types of radar detectors with the goal of finding the best radar detector  In order to achieve this goal, each item is thoroughly analyzed using various criteria
