eEuroparts has once again made improvements to eEuroparts.com in an effort to improve their customers’ shopping experience. Navigation is simplified, search is enhanced, and adding items to the shopping cart is now a one click process that lets the customer continue shopping without leaving their page. The most obvious change is a redesign of the homepage. Instead of a dozen links navigating customers to specific make pages and various account sections, new visitors will be greeted by five simple tabs. The first is the new Browse By Make Tab. Click Browse By Make and a dropdown menu appears containing all of eEuroparts’ eight Makes, from BMW to Volkswagen. This replaces the traditional Make menu bar that previously ran the length of the page above the Vehicle Selector. Moving Browse By Make from the menu bar to a tab dropdown accomplishes two goals. First, it frees up space to expand the
We love it when customers stop by with cool cars! Steven Cote’s 1991 Saab 900 Turbo convertible is a total classic. What better way to pick up parts for your “new” Saab than with your old one. Steven uses the drop top as his summer cruiser and admits to having thoughts of parting with it to make room for a couple more collector motorcycles, his other love. As a fellow member of the two wheel brigade I can feel for him. I recently added a 1993 Saab convertible to my stable and there are two things that it can do that no motorcycle can…… carry three golf bags and keep me warm and dry should the New England weather do what it always seems to do, change for the worst. Advantage… Saab! About the Saab 900 The Saab 900 is a compact luxury car that was produced from 1978 until 1998. The first “classic”
I’ll be the first to admit, five weeks of evening work sessions to assemble and swap out a drivetrain AND test a new engine control system on a Saab 900 was a little ambitious. However, with a sparse number of northeast events, TeamRemmers made the decision to get the car back together and go for it. Plagued by small problems that turned into big problems, we thought we had the formula down enough to get the car back together and run the 24 Hours of Lemons “Loudon Annoying” event held at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. A toasted bottom end from a blown turbo required both swapping of turbo units, doing (another) head gasket job as well as mating it to our somewhat fresh transmission, now with power-steering-pump-driven-transmission-oil-cooler-and filter. What could go wrong? Apparently, a lot. Our prototype Trionic5 flywheel setup needed a few tweaks before we were running code free and with some boost.
eEuroparts has a simple three-word motto: Your parts, fast! Within that phrase are two promises. First, we carry the parts that you need. Second, we get you the parts you need fast. It sound easy, but the execution is quite complex. The good news is we’ve gotten so good at our shipping process that FedEx has done a case study on eEuroparts, which you can read about here. Here’s our own perspective on how we offer fast, free shipping. In order to provide the fastest, freest shipping, eEuroparts must process and manage our orders in the most efficient way possible. Every day eEuroparts ships hundreds of orders all across the United States and to dozens of countries. In order to manage that kind of volume and navigate the resulting logistical complexities, eEuroparts uses V-Technologies, LLC, a FedEx Compatible Solutions Program provider. They helped us integrate StarShip, along with FedEx Web Services, into our own
Most people have heard of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the world’s oldest active sports car endurance race where drivers race for 24 hours and over 3,000 miles in the ultimate test of skill, grit, determination, and mechanical engineering. The 24 Hours of LeMons is not that race. Every car entered into each 24 Hours of LeMons race was purchased, fixed up, and track prepared for a total of $500 or less. LeMans, LeMons, lemons…get it? Take one look at the vehicles entered into each LeMons race and you’ll realize two things: These cars really ARE put together for $500 or less The people driving them are more than a little crazy. You don’t have to enter the race to enjoy it. Tickets are available for only $30 for the entire weekend (or $20/day, kids under 16 are FREE), and it really is an amazing spectacle. The racers are truly great people
