OEM parts and aftermarket parts basics 

One of the most important factors to consider when choosing the right shop and course of reparative action for your Audi is to think about what kind of replacement parts will be used should the occasion arise. There are several different types of replacement parts to choose from, including original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts or aftermarket parts. There are benefits and drawbacks to both, and it’s important to know what your options are.

Performing repairs or maintenance on an Audi requires a high level of skill, expertise, and quality of work as well as replacement parts. Usually, luxury cars such as Audis utilize OEM parts that are typically purchased through the same dealership where the car was obtained and guaranteed/certified by the manufacturer, whereas aftermarket parts are available to the public.

Benefits of OEM Audi parts 

Depending on the nature of the repair/replacement, OEM parts might work better for your Audi. Below is a brief list of factors that apply to OEM Audi parts:

  • Align with Audi manufacturer standards: OEM parts are of the exact same quality as the original part.
  • Certified by manufacturers: These parts are guaranteed by manufacturers to meet the same standards and qualifications of the original parts.
  • High quality: OEM parts are designed to replace high-quality parts with the exact same design and function.
  • Usually always available: It is rare for manufacturers to stop carrying parts, but usually OEM parts can be ordered through your dealership or Audi specialist.
  • They can be more expensive: Aftermarket parts tend to be cheaper versions of OEM parts, but sometimes the extra expense is worth the quality of the part.

Choosing OEM Audi parts for your vehicle repairs and restoration should be the only option. Protect your investment and demand the best care possible with OEM Audi parts from our service and parts department at HJ Pfaff Audi in Newmarket.
