STYLE="margin-top:18px;margin-bottom:0px">Purchasers of aftermarket auto parts may not choose to shop online, which would prevent us from acquiring new customers who are necessary to the growth of our
business.

The online market for aftermarket auto parts is less developed than the online market for many other business and
consumer products. Our success will depend in part on our ability to attract new customers and customers who have historically purchased auto parts through traditional retail and wholesale operations. Furthermore, we may have to incur significantly
higher and more sustained advertising and marketing expenditures or may need to price our products more competitively than we currently anticipate in order to attract additional online consumers and convert them into purchasing customers. Specific
factors that could prevent prospective customers from purchasing from us include:

 







  

concerns about buying auto parts without face-to-face interaction with sales personnel;

STYLE="font-size:6px;margin-top:0px;margin-bottom:0px"> 







  

the inability to physically handle, examine and compare products;

 








  

delivery time associated with Internet orders;

 







  

concerns about the security of online transactions and the privacy of personal information;

STYLE="font-size:6px;margin-top:0px;margin-bottom:0px"> 







  

delayed shipments or shipments of incorrect or damaged products;

 







  

increased shipping costs; and

 







  

the inconvenience associated with returning or exchanging items purchased online.

STYLE="margin-top:12px;margin-bottom:0px; text-indent:4%">If the online market for auto parts does not gain widespread acceptance, our sales may decline and our business and financial results may suffer.
