Sep 11, 2008
With the variety of models and makes in the market, you may have thought that choosing the right car for you was the one big decision you had to make. Well true enough, but now you also have the luxury of being able to choose from a wide variety of aftermarket parts for your car.

What exactly are aftermarket parts for a car?

Most of the time, when you buy a new car from a dealership, it comes with certain standard factory options for various things, like the wheels, transmission, engine and other performance parts. Even the lights and the interiors are available in some standard options. You may request some upgrades from the dealership in terms of a better interior or a better speaker system but the options are very limited. So, to truly personalize your car or to make it faster or run smoother, you will have to go for what are called aftermarket auto parts.

Show Me What Is Out There

Well, you'll be surprised. The categories of the various aftermarket car parts themselves run into dozens not to mention the variety in each one of them.

The first thing a car owner is usually focused on is the look of the car. The more it reflects your style, your personality, the better. One can get a complete body kit containing various accessories for the exterior of a car, which include front fascia, rear fascia, rear wing and many more. Other add-ons include air dams, windshield decals, window visors and novelty license plates not to mention various color combinations.
There are also many options for the interior of a car. Custom seat covers are now available in a variety of designs, textures and colors. Seats themselves may be modified to help with lumbar support or to act as back massagers. A sound system is now part of almost every car.

However, you can always seek to improve on the existing sound system, especially if you travel for long hours. You could also add cargo holders and organizers of your choice to hold your coffee or your sunglasses. You could change the flooring, put in sunshades, even work on the steering wheel.

If you are constantly on the road and visiting many unknown places, a GPS navigational system may the best accessory for you. These are extremely accurate, to within a few feet of your desired destination, extremely useful and are nowadays available at fairly good prices.

You can work on the carburetor or air filters, get powerful exhaust systems, improve on various aspects of the engine and check out various suspension, chassis or steering options.
