Top 10 most expensive car parts to replace

Car maintenance

New research has revealed the most expensive car parts to replace in 2023, with the engine – the heart of a car – topping the chart.

Electronic car part remanufacturer, Actronics Ltd, conducted the study of the average cost of replacing new car parts for the top five most frequently driven car models in the UK – the Vauxhall Astra, Volkswagen Golf, Vauxhall Corsa, Ford Focus, and Ford Fiesta.

With an average cost of £2,685 an engine replacement took top spot, following closely in second place by the gearbox, averaging around £1,072.

Airbags were in third place, with an average cost of £1,045.99, while the average cost of all the car parts featured in the Top 10 was £787.80.

Next on the list was the Engine Control Unit (ECU) typically costing on average £932.51. The ECU is a specialised electronic component that requires precise engineering and manufacturing. The complexity of its design and the advanced technology involved contribute to its cost.

Moving down the list, next is the sat nav/stereo system, with an average cost of around £639.10 for replacement. Then there is the catalytic converter, which costs an average of £351.67 to replace.

In seventh place is the radiator, with an average cost of around £344.80 for replacement. The fuel pump, shock absorber and ignition coil bottom out the list costing £322.68, £307.40 and £176.80 respectively to replace.

“The cost of car parts is becoming increasingly expensive, putting a strain on many people’s budgets,” said a Actronics spokesperson.

“In some cases, the cost of repairing a car can be more than the value of the car itself.

“We believe that refurbishing car parts is a viable option for many people.

“Remanufactured car parts are often just as good as new parts, and they can save you a significant amount of money.”

The Best Way to Find and Order Original BMW Parts

A BMW is one of the most precious possessions for any car enthusiast, and like any automobile, it requires the occasional replacement of parts. We at LLLParts bring best-in-class BMW OEM parts to our clientele with our comprehensive online catalog. You can find everything under the bonnet here on our website.

OEM – Why Do Genuine Parts Matter?

OEM stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer, meaning the parts and pieces of equipment for your car come directly from the BMW supply chain.

Why should you even care about OEM parts? Aren’t all automobile parts available in the market doing the same job? The answer is no. When you opt for after-market parts, the total valuation of your BMW decreases. This means you won’t get the price you deserve if and when you decide to sell the car.

Furthermore, if your vehicle houses cheap third-party parts, it will become extremely challenging to negotiate the price because the buyer will have the upper hand. This is why you need to be very cautious when selecting parts for your BMW. With our up-to-date online catalog, you can find, view, and buy authentic BMW OEM parts without any hassle.
