Some people may purchase aftermarket car parts for safety reasons such as xenon headlight upgrades which provide brighter and whiter light and therefore greater visibility. Other people may just want their cars to look good and have that exclusivity and would purchase styling parts and accessories like body kits and alloy wheels to make their cars stand out from the crowd. For many car enthusiasts purchasing aftermarket parts and modifying their cars is a real pastime and may spend thousands on performance upgrades, interior & exterior styling as well as other cosmetics.
Perhaps that's the beauty of it. Take an older car, dress it up with some performance grade car parts and turn an unlikely and unassuming vehicle into something that will turn heads everywhere you take it.
There are certain criteria which one must be aware of before going out to buy aftermarket car parts. Firstly you need to be aware that installing an aftermarket car part may null your vehicles warranty, if there is any. Therefore, be sure to check your warranty documents before proceeding to install a car part. Secondly ensure you know your car make, model and year as these are the common criteria used to check whether a part is compatible with your car. Finally be sure to check your local laws as installing a certain type of part may be deemed illegal in your area of residence.
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.
Like it or not, but a car is the most visible statement of luxury and the most potent status symbol. However, is a car and people will not notice it until you customize it according to your taste. That flashy body paint, those shining chrome mirrors and radiator grilles, ultra-luxurious interiors, leather seats, and other additions make your car the object of attention.
