How confident when you purchase Auto Parts online?
Online purchase is getting common in Malaysia, and there are more and more local website to serve this purpose beside like those international recognized eBay or Amazon, and there are one unique website http://www.save22.com.my/ which actually serve as you check online on what you want and you purchase offline physically to the shop.
For this, I think it is quite practical for some item that you may feel in-confident when you purchase online, which you may afraid that the items show on photo is not exactly like the physical item you received.
Although this website actually don't have Automotive Parts category in it, but this is the field that need to be expose to.
Automotive parts may not that complicated if you have the OEM part number on hand, but I believe most of the car owner will don't have the OEM part number reference on hand, so anything that they needed, they just check with given the description of the parts and the car model in the sourcing process.
Sometime due to there are few generation of one car model which have some parts changes or design modification, it is better to have some photo of the parts to help the sourcing, but for items like engine gasket which the physical part hidden inside the engine, some owner may not dare to dismantle the parts out from the engine before they can confirm the gasket is available.
