My boyfriend is good with the cars, and said he could do it for me and save me a bit of money.
Turns out, he meant labour only, but still expects me to pay for parts.
Is this fair? Surely my boyfriend of a year, who makes more money than I do, can afford to pay for the parts as well?

Somebody has to pay for the parts, you don't just get parts for free. If it was his own car he was fixing he would have had to pay for the parts and do the labour himself, so if it's your car that he fixed then surely it makes sense you should pay for the parts when he's doing the labour for free? He's done you a massive favour and saved you a decent chunk of money, and it seems like you're no being a bit self-entitled for it.
Put it this way. When you go out to places together and you're driving, do you expect him to pay towards your fuel? I'd be surprised if you do.
I'm all for people in relationships doing favours for each other, but there is a limit. He's been incredibly generous by sacrificing his own time to help you out and save you some money, so the best thing you can do is be grateful, pay for the parts that were fixed or replaced, and continue with your relationship, and the next time he needs a favour from you repay him in kind by helping him out then.
Not being funny is he the man of ther relationship did she drive him about. So putting u hand in pocket for ur bird is the man thing to do ur nuts
@David291185norris A relationship is a two way street, the idea of 'the man of the couple' being the one to have to do everything and be the one to provide everything is a bit outdated. Given plenty of women work and have decent careers now, I would rather be with someone in an equal partnership.
My last girlfriend, I earned more than she did, but we both have jobs. We went for a day out at a local attraction once, I insisted on paying the entry, so she made a point of getting us both lunch. We split most responsibilities or costs fairly equally and it worked well. It's the 21st century, equality is a thing now.

@Clarke498 female entitlement pisses everyone off even females. Even tho females still feel this way but are unwillingly to admit it
