It is now possible to buy replacement parts for the HTC Vive directly from HTC, with some parts coming in with surprisingly high prices. 

While some of HTC's hardware does come with some reasonable prices, like 3 nose rests for £11.99 and a spare link box for £26.99, some of the hardware comes in at prices which are frankly absurd. A single Base tracking station costs £121.99 and a single HTC Vive motion controller costs £116.99, which is huge given the fact that the HTC Vive comes in with two of each for under £700. 

Below you can see the UK and US pricing of each part.

- Proprietary 3-in-1 Cable - £35.99 $39.99
- Base Station - £121.99 $134.99
- Motion Controller - £116.99 $129.99
- 2x Face Cushion - £23.99 $24.99
- Link Box £26.99 - $29.99
- 3x Nose Rest - £11.99 $12.99
- USB Extension Cable - £8.99 $10

At this time shipping to the UK from HTC is listed as £40, making the replacement of any of your HTC Vive hardware a very expensive process. 

Hopefully, retailers will start stocking spare HTC Vive parts soon to save consumers postage costs or 3rd party versions of several items like the face cushions, nose rests, and the HTC Vive's cables will become available to provide competitive pricing.
