That is all well and good, but what about the cost of all of this? The competitive nature of online business means that companies have to give you a fair price for parts. This helps them to keep their business growing. Along with this, most cosmetic car parts, such as body panels and trim, can be installed with minimal difficulty. And if you're confident and up for a challenge, you may find it possible to upgrade more complex parts yourself. But if engineering isn’t your cup of tea, most garages will be happy to fit parts that you source, for only the cost of labour. You're likely to pay more for parts sourced by your garage, and they'll often charge a fee to find them for you. The savings you can make doing the leg work yourself can pay off down the line.
At this point, there’s an elephant in the room that must be addressed. Is it worth spending time researching, just to save money? Or the real question; how much work will I have to do to save that money..? Don’t worry, thanks to search engines like Google; you don’t even have to do research. You can access hundreds of different AMG performance parts, Porsche parts, BMW parts and pretty much any part for any car you could imagine.
And if you decide to fit parts yourself, you can find an almost infinite amount of online resources to help you.
