Why Buy Genuine Audi OEM Parts?

When it comes to enhancing appearance or performance, maintaining, or replacing parts of your new Audi, chose quality genuine Audi OEM parts. Before we discuss the importance of buying genuine Audi OEM parts, let's define OEM. OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer. This term is used when one company makes a part that is used in another company's end product, like original Audi parts for your new A3, A4, A5, A6, A7, A8, Q3Q5, or Q7. Let's face it, you want to protect your new investment and we're here to help you.

Here are some reasons to consider genuine OEM Audi parts next time you need a repair:

Quality - The OEM part replacement is essentially the same as the one you're replacing. It comes with the same level of Audi quality, providing you with assurance and peace of mind.

Easier to Select - Selecting a replacement part can be confusing and timely. Choosing an OEM part reduces the amount of time spent comparing options, prices, and compatibility concerns of your vehicle.

Convenient Ordering - Needing a vehicle fix can be stressful, we make ordering your replacement part simple and convenient. You can choose to place an order online, over the phone, or at the dealership. Whichever you chose, we are here to help.

Warranty Protection - Not all, but some OEM parts may come with a warranty. This warranty protection can help offset the slightly high cost associated with genuine OEM parts.

Safety - Audi Genuine OEM parts undergo performance and safety testing, and meet required standards. Some aftermarket replacement parts do not undergo federal crash testing.

Increased Value - If you lease or plan to sell your vehicle in the future, aftermarket replacement parts may decrease your vehicle's value. Maintain your investment with genuine OEM parts.


What is the alternative?

The alternative to purchasing genuine OEM parts is purchasing aftermarket replacement parts. Aftermarket replacement parts are any parts that are not produced by the original manufacturer. There are hundreds of companies that manufacture or sell aftermarket parts, making sorting through your options timely and potentially overwhelming. Although typically lower in cost, these aftermarket parts may not be fully compatible with your vehicle, so it's recommended to contact your Audi Parts Specialist prior to your purchase. 

Genuine Audi OEM Parts Replacement/Repair Tips:

Collision Repairs - When it comes to external body work, it's recommended to use Audi OEM parts. Choosing aftermarket replacement parts may not correctly fit your vehicle or match the paint color properly.

Leased Vehicles - When it comes to leased vehicles, it's a good practice to repair with genuine Audi OEM parts. Although aftermarket parts may be cheaper, it may negatively impact the value of your vehicle at the end of your lease.

When it comes to protecting your investment, we recommend the best. OEM parts provide direct quality straight from the manufacturer, providing you with a perfect fit and peace of mind.
