Of course, there are parts that you can compromise on and get a used part, while there are other's that you can't on. For example, transferring a headlight or tail-light from a used car is not a problem in most cases (though it will wear out sooner than a new one). However, transferring an air filter from a used car may be counter-productive since it may already have dust and dirt in it that will harm your car instead of helping it. The same goes for more sophisticated parts such as transmission. A general rule of the thumb is that more the internal and smaller moving components in an auto part, the riskier it is to acquire a used one for replacement.
Perhaps no other human invention is subject to so many alterations and customization as vehicles. Every car was a customized once. Those were the days of elegant, classic cars. During the first decade of the twentieth century, those who could afford cars had a choice of some of the finest car ever built. These hand-built cars were powerful and luxurious, using the finest woods, leathers and cloths, and many embellishments.
Timely and proper Servicing and maintenance of a Car and Car parts ensures a longer life for the car with problem free driving. Properly servicing and maintaining the car, with timely replacement of parts with Quality spare parts, ensures that the car does not ditch you when you need it the most, especially in an emergency. One of the most crucial parts of a car, besides the brakes and Car Engine, is the Car Gearbox system. A serviced and maintained Car Gearbox ensures a smooth ride. The opposite of this, a poorly maintained and serviced car and gearbox could be a nightmare ride, with loud noises and bumpy rides. An improperly working Car gearbox could sometimes seem like a giant gnashing his teeth in rage. If you ignore the Car Gearbox and not attend to it in time, you may very well have to replace the whole gearbox in order to use 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.
What that means is that you will either need to find parts that are interchangeable or you will need to modify existing performance parts to fit your needs on that particular vehicle. Either option is not for the novice. You will need to know what to look for are you wanted to mix and match car parts for an older vehicle. In order to modify parts, you will really need a good grasp on mechanics and in some cases, advanced engineering.
