Why is it important to use only Genuine BMW Parts?

When it comes time to repair or maintain a BMW, these parts often referred to as Original Equipment Manufacturer parts are truly the only option available to ensure a post-repair BMW operates like new. Because these are the same parts used to build a new BMW. Like any car, several parts of a BMW will experience wear and tear over time and eventually need to be replaced. There’s no getting around this. While many third-party manufacturers attempt to copy BMW components after the fact, only OEM parts live up to the precise craftsmanship that goes into the design of every BMW. That’s because an OEM part is exactly the same component the BMW was built with.

Why should you avoid aftermarket BMW parts?

Because many aftermarket manufacturers offer cheaper alternatives to OEM parts. This doesn’t have to do with competitive pricing or slimmer profit margins. Aftermarket parts cost less either because they are made from inferior materials, or because they are produced using less exacting processes. While any mechanic may successfully install an aftermarket part that closely resembles the original OEM component, that is not to say the product will precisely fit, or perform at the same high-level BMWs demand. An aftermarket part is more likely to reduce a BMW’s efficiency, and more likely to wear out sooner. Additionally, if you use aftermarket parts on your BMW and something happens to the vehicle because of these parts, you can actually void your warranty.
