However, if you can find your way through all that, it's likely that you will have a one of a kind car whose likeness will never be seen again. After all, who could possibly imagine a lowered chromed out 2000 Dodge Caravan with a cool racing strip and a growl of some serious horsepower coming from underneath the hood.
The era of custom-built cars ended with the introduction of mass production starting with Ford Model T. Instead of luxury, usefulness dictates the automobile industry of today. These days, except for a few very high-end cars, manufacturers do not entertain requests for customization. However, not everything is lost. One can still revamp his or her car with hundreds of aftermarket car parts. Let us understand what aftermarket parts are.
Quality Car parts, timely servicing and maintenance, and or replacing parts with good quality spare parts is not only essential, but crucial to the smooth running and long life of a car. If you can think of a car as a living, breathing object, then you can understand that just like any other animate object in this world, a car also requires food (oil and gas), servicing and maintenance (washing, oil changes, etc), or some tuning and adjustments of parts (heart surgeries, liver, lung, and stomach ailments) and sometimes replacement of parts (liver transplants, heart transplants). This just shows that if you take care of a car like a family member, it will provide trouble free service for years and be with you like a friend for life.
The internet makes things much easier nowadays with instant quotes and the ability to buy anything including car parts online 365 days a year 24 hours a day. With many products it is quiet easy as there may be just ion version of what you are buying, but when it comes to car parts it can be a totally different story. There is this assumption that by buying a particular make and model of car, it will have the same set of parts that that entire model would have. The truth is this is juts not true. First of all the time when your car is registered, that normally dictates the year of the car, may not be the time it was manufactured. It is very possible that your car has been standing for 6 months on an airfield somewhere, before it was eventually sold and registered at new. There can be the same car, registered at the same time but was built 4 months later. This ultimately means that there could be a difference in the parts that make up the car.
What your options are from that point on is one of two things. You can try and salvage the part you have, which you can try this yourself if you have the aptitude for such things. However, in other cases, you might want to enlist the help of a professional.
