I want to buy some exterior auto parts online for my off-road. I have scanned 3 online stores, including AutoZone, Carid, and Motorshive but have no idea of how to choose.
It seems like all of them are selling the auto parts and the quality of the products is similar. How to choose the best one?

According to foreign media reports, the German car companies represented by BMW, Daimler and Volkswagen have been working hard to develop electric vehicles and self driving cars, but the pressure is still relatively large. In North America, China and Europe, the world's largest automobile market, all automobile manufacturers have joined a new wave of competition. However, the German automobile industry has obvious disadvantages.
Automobile electronics is the trend of the times, and digitalization is also the future direction of automobile development, including automatic driving. This means that in addition to the traditional automobile manufacturers, technology companies will continue to enter the competition in the future automobile market.
From another point of view, for German auto companies, the opening of the era of electric vehicles is also more difficult. First, from the profit point of view, the profit of electric vehicles in the early stage of development is obviously less than that of traditional energy vehicles. For example, Toyota and Volkswagen, the traditional car giants, have annual operating profits ranging from 15 billion to 20 billion euros, while high-tech companies such as Apple make about three times their annual profits.
Pressure bears the power, because Feilong Jiangli's parent company, Xipu, is supporting German brands such as Volkswagen and Daimler, we are full of expectations and confidence for the development of German brand automobile enterprises.
Hello: I am looking for the AC Evaporator Tube for my 1995 Buick Riviera (3.8L, Supercharged, 4 speed automatic). The part number is 25607525. Just to clarify it is not the evaporator I need but rather the AC Evaporator Tube that connects to the evaporator.
I have included 3 attachments above, displaying a picture of the actual part I require. It is circled in blue.
I would deeply appreciate any help from anyone who can tell me where I may locate this AC part for my vehicle, new or used?

(1) oil release: unscrew the oil bolts and put the oil in the right container. If all the oil in the oil pan can not be dried through the oil drain bolt hole, the remaining lubricating oil in the oil pan must be drained through the oil pumping equipment.
(2) install the oil drain plug, tightening torque is generally 25±3N • m
(3) refueling: oil can be added from the oil filler cap or scale pipe orifice. But if you add oil from the top of the oil filler, it takes more than 10 minutes to keep the oil flowing to the oil pan. If you add oil from the caliper nozzle, the time can be shortened to 3 minutes.
(4) taking the design capacity of 4 to 5 liters as an example, for the first time, the lower limit capacity of the engine oil is 4 liters.
(5) wipe the ruler clean and slowly insert it into the ruler tube. After inserting into position, stand still for a few seconds, then pull out the scale, observe and record the position relationship between the level and the scale. During observation, the head of the ruler should be washed down or flat.
(6) add 0.5 liters of oil according to step 3 and repeat step 5. There is no midline requirement on the ruler. This step is for reference only.
(7) repeat step 5 according to step 3 on the basis of step 4 and add 1L oil. The relationship between the level and the level of the liquid was observed and recorded.
according to the results of steps 5, 6 and 7, check whether the calibration scale and the minimum scale scale are correct

AmazonBasics High Mileage Motor Oil - Synthetic Blend
AmazonBasics high-mileage synthetic-blend motor oil offers an enhanced level of protection for engines over 75,000 miles. Its synthetic blend combines conventional oil with synthetic for cost efficiency with some of the benefits of a full synthetic. An important part of routine maintenance, the motor oil works well for anything from topping off levels to complete oil changes. Whether it’s a beloved older vehicle or one with an uncertain maintenance history, help protect its engine with AmazonBasics high-mileage, synthetic-blend motor oil.
When selecting parts for a car repair, it pays to know the differences between original and aftermarket parts. Whenever possible, get estimates for both.
Choosing between original and aftermarket car parts — and even used parts of either type — is all about squaring your priorities with your budget.
You’ll have different options depending on the part and the shop. And the best choice will depend on whether you’re trying to keep repairs cheap, restore your car’s appearance after a wreck or soup up your ride.
Original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts match those that came with your car, and are of the same quality as its original parts. They’re also the most expensive.
The factory-recommended replacement intervals for filters can vary quite a bit depending on the year, make and model of the vehicle, as well as how it is driven. As a rule, older vehicles (those more than 15 to 20 years old) typically have more frequent service intervals than newer vehicles. Why? Because late-model vehicles require less maintenance, thanks to improvements in motor oils, transmission fluids, engine design and filter media.
Many long-life air and oil filters use synthetic fiber media or a blend of cellulose and synthetic fibers to extend filter life.
Changing the oil and filter every 3,000 miles was standard practice decades ago. But it’s no longer necessary because most multi-viscosity oils today are a synthetic blend or a full synthetic that resist viscosity breakdown and oxidation for a much longer period of time. Late-model fuel-injected engines also run much cleaner than their carbureted ancestors, which reduces oil contamination in the crankcase.

Function of 8V0698151/5QD698151
8V0698151/5QD698151 is the most crucial safety part in the braking system. The result of all braking operations is determined by the braking pad.
Common faults of 8V0698151/5QD698151
1. Abnormal sound is often heard during braking.
2. During high-load braking, the braking pad is prone to deformation due to severe wear under high temperature. In serious cases, a braking operation may fail.
Reference NO: 8V0698151/5QD698151
Name: Brake Pad Set, disc brake
Applicable models of vika 8V0698151/5QD698151
AUDI: A3 13-15
Advantages of vika 8V0698151/5QD698151
1. Thermo-stable: The refractory ceramic material is able to tolerate a temperature up to 650℃ during continuous braking operations. At high temperatures, this pad provides excellent braking without any deformation or melting. With a high braking torque, it helps shorten the braking distance.
2. Dust-free: The advanced ceramic material reduces accumulation of dust effectively, and avoids development of rust or corrosion.
3. Low noise: The beveled-edge design helps eliminate abnormal sound, and matches the braking disc perfectly, causing no harm to the latter.
When should 8V0698151/5QD698151 be replaced?
1. Visual inspection: A new braking pad typically measures about 15mm in thickness. If you discover through visual inspection that the pad is merely 5mm thick, it’s time to change it.
2. Sound: If during a gentle braking process a hissing sound like that generated by iron pieces rubbing against each other is heard, the braking pad should be replaced without delay;
3. Force required for braking: When the brake is pressed, if it feels less resistant than usual or shows dangerous insensitivity, the pad should be replaced.
With a unique technical design, vika 8V0698151/5QD698151 reduces braking noise effectively, and provides a long service life due to excellent durability. Welcome to contact us for purchase.

I have been a mechanic for many years. I used to buy Napa Auto Parts almost always. I felt the parts were good quality, although more expensive than others. It does not pay to install poor quality parts on a car, they come back, and bite you! Unfortunately, a few years ago it seems Napa changed their policy on quality. This happened around the time they totally changed the on-line site. Around the same time, I started looking at Rock Auto on-line. Rock Auto offers each part by a few different manufacturers, quality levels, and prices. I started noticing that despite Napa still charging higher prices, they were now supplying the cheapest, lowest quality parts instead of the better quality they were known for. Given that, why would a person order from Napa, when Rock Auto is surprisingly lower priced, and you have a quality level choice . Napa seems to be riding on their previous well known name, while keeping the prices artificially high.
Some prime examples of this is, I purchased a starter solenoid, (eckland, Napa's electrical brand), as a preventative measure. The third start-up, after installing, the solenoid froze in the on position, with key off, and kept the starter spinning and engaged until I could unhook one battery terminal. Burned up the relay, starter, and a couple wires. I purchased a rebuilt alternator, took it from the box, and turned it, it felt rough turning, as if there was dirt in the bearing race or defective bearing components. I purchased Napa's best fuel pump, and it was very noisy from day one. I purchased a set of Napa Branded, 2 ton each, jack stands. One of them had a defective casting that would not allow the stop to lock in place. Although it seemed it locked, when weight was applied, it fell. I purchased rebuilt Ford Front calipers from Napa, and with in one year, the unplated soft steel bleeder screws has rusted solid to the caliper!
Are other people seeing this too??

According to foreign media reports, sales of light vehicles in the United States last year (2018) were not only higher than those in 2017, but also exceeded analysts' expectations, with a total of 17.3 million vehicles sold. However, analysts and industry observers again said that due to a variety of economic factors, the U.S. light vehicle market will show a downward trend in 2019, but the decline is relatively small.
Many analysts expect U.S. light vehicle sales to range from 16.5 million to 17 million in 2019. J.D. Power expects between 16.9 million and 17 million vehicles, with retail sales of light vehicles between 13.6 million and 13.7 million.
As in 2018, the relative strength of the U.S. economy masked concerns about new car prices and rising interest rates. But in addition to these, there will be other problems in 2019, such as the impact of tariff and tax reform.
As a auto parts supplier, Chongqing Feilong Jiangli will keep up-to-date information on new information and new energy industries.
