You need to work out your costs before you can make this a business.

You need to work out a tariff code for each of your car parts see

Also take a look at Use the tariff code to access data about what is needed for the export and the import.

Information on the Customs requirements for exporting is given in HMRC Public Notice 275. All notices can be found on our website under Quick Links > Library > Official Statistics – Publications – Notices, Info Sheets & Other Reference Materials > Import, Export & International Trade. The Public Notices are in numerical order.

I would also suggest that you contact the Customs Authorities in Dubai to ascertain if there are any import restrictions on such items.
