The world of car battery marketing has changed drastically in the last six or seven years. Gone are the brands of battery that we were all once familiar with and are now purely set behind national borders and localized brands. Instead, batteries are being sold that were one label but are actually built by another manufacturer. Globalism is here and the battery makers have openly embraced these changes.

Car batteries are now made by the giant battery companies of the World and just given brand names. For example Lucas batteries are now marketed by a Manchester company here in the UK, but are mainly made by Johnson Controls as the Lucas label is just a label owned by a large company who no longer manufacture the product. This is not to say the batteries are inferior indeed in my opinion the opposite applies and the batteries are of excellent quality.
Volkswagen’s cars such as the Polo are one of the makes of car that come out with a normal battery, usually calcium/calcium maintenance free.

The thing nowadays is that when the battery need replacing you will be probably be buying the same battery but with a different name. The German made cars tend to come out on a  battery that is made by the big companies, but with names like Bosch or Varta.

 Cars like the Volkswagen do not need special batteries                     

they only require a standard battery that you can buy at a cheap price online . Many of the batteries that are offered on sale from the internet are good enough for the Buy VW Polo Batteries Online and indeed all the VW range of cars. You could find that your VW dealer may tell you that their cars require a special battery, but in my opinion this is not necessary.
You can buy a battery of just as good a quality at one of the better online stores at a much cheaper price. A decent quality battery for a Polo part number 063 should be in-between £30 and £40 delivered online.

Cheap Exhaust Pipes-Not Any More? Why are they more expensive on modern cars?

Cheap Exhaust Pipes

Different reasons why the Cheap Exhaust Pipes cost more.

Going way back in time. I can remember when we used to buy Cheap Exhaust Pipes in bulk quantities. Until changes started to happen. Because, car manufacturers became computerized . Therefore, they were able to change car designs and shapes at a much faster pace.

Cheap Exhaust Pipes

A modern exhaust part costs more but better made

The car models.  When I first started fitting car “Exhaust Pipes”. Were fitted for years before they were changed. Hence, cars like the Vauxhall Viva (remember the old vivas?), Vauxhall Cavaliers, the Minis . Of course, the VW beetles were also very common. Because these cars were built in such huge quantities we could buy the Cheap Exhaust Pipes in bulk and pass the savings onto the customers.

After the start up of Kwik-fit many smaller companies like my self started up as Tyre and Exhaust centres and because they were a relatively new concept we enjoyed great success and thrived, with Cheap Exhaust Pipes one of big sellers.

No internet selling exhaust pipes

Of course things changed with the advent of the internet. At first it did not affect us , but the old faithful car models began to decline followed by cars that were built in smaller quantities with different designs and engine sizes within the same car models. This meant different exhaust fitted to the same models, for example the same car may have a 1.1 or a 2.0 litre engine requiring a different exhaust system to be fitted. This change made it

badly repaired exhaust box two

difficult to keep a large stock of exhausts at Cheap Exhaust Pipes prices, because of the vastness of the stock we would require.

Cheap Exhaust Pipes

This brought a string of large exhaust wholesalers selling Cheap Exhaust Pipes to the fast fit centres and regular garages. Here in Halifax we had five companies who were wholesaling exhausts  and this meant that another string of costs were added to the price of an exhaust pipe to the general pubic and therefore a rise in cost.

Also better manufacturing methods made the exhaust pipes last longer

As time went by Cheap Exhaust Pipes were not as important to us fast-fit centres and we went onto other things such as servicing and MOT testing, also car batteries became a more important of our business, although we still fit exhausts, but nowadays they are better made and last much longer than they used to last, but better quality means that the motorists get a better deal with a better product, but at a much higher price.
