First I would like to talk about the poor Engrand used in the article. Can't they differentiate break and brake? Back to the story, I'm really surprised that there are people buying second hand brake hoses and brake pads! Those are wear and tear parts. I don't trust the local made parts, so I recently bought some high performance brake pads from US. It wasn't expensive, but the shipping charges are as expensive as the brake pads! Oh well, I think it is worth it. I will never skimp on such items. I usually do not encourage people buying second hand tyres, but I just did that on my wife's car, only because one of the tyres was punctured beyond repairable, and the rest of the 3 tyres are practically brand new. I'm also surprised that people are buying used batteries. I agree with banning these parts, but I'm not sure what are they going to ban in phase 2... Engine? Gearbox? It's going to be a nightmare for us poor consumers.
