    items or names

    Hello.

    XXX is constantly increasing its product range that includes more than 7,000 items of spare parts.

    Is it correct to say "7,000 items of spare parts"? Maybe it is better to say "7,000 names of spare parts"?

    Thank you.

    Re: items or names

    You might want to include that. Perhaps say:

    spare parts for automobiles

    Unless, of course, it's obvious from the context.
