When looking for used car parts for your car, you need to watch out for stolen car parts. In the automotive industry, this is one of the greatest threats, both for private individuals and workshops, which are increasingly purchasing this type of elements on the Internet at auctions and through popular advertising portals. Online shopping is a great convenience and helps you save a lot of time, but it is worth remembering the risks associated with it.
Thieves target both popular and luxury brands. Regardless of the model and year of production, entire vehicles and their individual components disappear: mirrors, door handles, catalytic converters, tires and rims. Have you wondered what happens to them next?
When viewing items sold at auctions, it is better to avoid car parts of unknown origin. In most cases, the seller offers used car parts from post-accident cars, but more and more often you can come across car parts from the demolition of stolen cars. By purchasing such items, we may get into an unpleasant situation and even be accused of receiving stolen goods.
According to Polish law, purchasing stolen goods is punishable by imprisonment from 3 months to 5 years. A conscious purchase may result in an accusation of intentional stolen goods. If we did not know that a given part was stolen, we may be accused of unintentional receiving stolen goods. However, if the police prove that we showed insufficient diligence in examining the source of the parts, we may face restriction of liberty or imprisonment for up to two years.
Always make sure that the seller offers you used car parts from a legal source. It is best to use the services of a company that has been operating on the market for years and can boast of satisfied customers. At Alpincars, we sell used car parts of legal origin. These are elements obtained from exhibition cars or directly from the manufacturer's factory. BMW i car parts for MINI cars are very popular due to their quality, durability and wide selection. You can easily find, for example, BMW turbochargers, alternators, starters, water pumps, sensors, front and rear lamps, and fuel or brake system components.
Use the matching parts by VIN to match them to the model, year of production and specific equipment of the car. In a convenient way, the vehicle owner can replace what is necessary under the hood, but also ensure that the new steering wheel, gear knobs, mirrors, headliners and other elements match the specific specifications of the vehicle. Thanks to this, the car looks like it came straight from the showroom for a long time, and the driver can enjoy a safe and comfortable drive regardless of the conditions and the length of the route.
