March 16, 2020 - Submit your best, most clever, nobody would ever think of, new product ideas. Any idea that goes into production will get $500 bucks. In addition to cold hard cash, you will also receive a pre-production sample of the product to verify the product meets your high standards, and the standards of your fellow shops/enthusiasts.
Keep in mind the types of products we generally manufacture. Although you may have a great idea (i.e. ABS control module) that commonly fails and sells terrific, but if it's not within our product scope it will not come to fruition.
2. No limit on the number of ideas submitted per person.
3. Please submit product ideas for European cars only.
4. Include your name and phone number with every submission.
Please understand that there has to be some trust involved. We already have many products in our development pipeline, so it's possible that you could submit an idea that's already underway. We will NOT steal your idea. If your idea is already in our pipeline, we will notify you immediately.
* By submitting an idea, you waive any right to compensation of any type for such idea other than $500. Any and all rights to ideas submitted to A.P.A. Industries, Inc. become the exclusive property of A.P.A. Industries, Inc.

URO Premium products are re-engineered to solve the problem of these failure prone parts. URO Premium products feature a more robust design and/or higher-grade materials to vastly improve the reliability and durability of the product. Each URO Premium product bears the "URO Premium" seal (top left) and "PRM" suffix to their part number to easily distinguish them from their OEM counterparts.
Most importantly, we are so confident in our engineering that each URO Premium product will come with a warranty no auto part has come with before, a Lifetime Warranty (see certificate). You no longer have to make a choice between brands, the choice is clear.
URO Premium - Unique, Intelligent, Repair Solutions
