    What’s stopping you from taking that meandering tour of the Highlands, or that odyssey along the Cornwall coast you’ve always talked about? There are many elements of modern life that can get in the way of your dream summer adventure, but your car shouldn’t be one of them.

    If your battery’s giving you second thoughts, your headlights struggle on dark country roads, or even your in-car entertainment isn’t up to a seven-hour shift with impatient kids in the back, eBay vehicle parts and accessories can help.

    Rather than leave your precious time and money at the whim of your local garage, you can find your one part in a million from eBay’s vast range – and replace or upgrade it yourself. Once that’s sorted, all that’s left for you to do is to get the show on the road.

    Dealing with garages can often leave you stranded in a no man’s land waiting for parts to arrive, which end up costing you a fortune when they do eventually turn up. And if you need multiple jobs doing, it can quickly spiral into a nightmare that puts the brakes on any more fun plans you might have had. Thankfully, eBay boasts a range of millions of parts and accessories from the same trusted, recognisable brands your mechanic would use.

    From integral mechanical components like spark plugs, oil filters, batteries, and wiper blades to interior upgrades such as seat covers, DAB radio and speakers, the tools you need to transform your everyday run-around into the perfect summer road trip vehicle, could be just a few clicks away. That includes tyres too, with the chance to select the ones from a huge choice of brands – and have them fitted by a professional, if you really want to keep your hands clean. Put simply, if the part exists, you’ll be able to find it on eBay.

    With so many parts available, you might think it’d be tricky to narrow them down to the one that’s right for your car. But that’s where eBay’s My Garage comes in. Simply type in your registration and search for the part you want, and you’ll be greeted with plenty of results for a component that will fit your exact make, model and spec.

    And with eBay’s Certified Recycled scheme, you could even save up to 70% on reclaimed parts compared to the cost of new ones. You’ll still be buying from trusted sellers and all the parts are tested and sold by certified automotive recyclers. So, not only will you be saving even more cash, but you’ll also be doing your bit for the planet. All recycled parts are covered by the money back guarantee as well, so it’s a genuine win-win.

    Drivers are often stung by the need for specialist parts from the manufacturer of whichever car they own. Thankfully with eBay, you can shop from more than 25 OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers), including BMW, Audi, Ford, Toyota and more. That means you can compare prices from approved sellers of official parts, and enjoy a 12-month guarantee.
