We use only BMW original parts
As a BMW Approved Independent Service Centre, we are committed to only using original BMW parts. This is how we ensure that we always use the correct part, built especially for your model of BMW, when we replace a part.
What are OEM Parts?
OEM stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer. OEM parts are parts that have been created to the original BMW specifications, in a BMW factory. So OEM parts are the same quality as the parts originally used to build your car.
OEM parts are made in the same factory as other original BMW parts. Using the same tools, the same materials, the same machines and people.
So the answer to the question: “Are OEM parts genuine BMW parts?”, is Yes!
What is the difference between aftermarket and OEM?
Aftermarket parts are not based on the original specifications. They are not built in BMW factories. They are copies of the original BMW parts.
Aftermarket parts can therefore be of inferior quality to original BMW parts.
Are aftermarket car parts good?
We prefer to use only original BMW parts. That is how we ensure that we use the highest quality parts available. Using aftermarket car parts is a risk we don’t take.
