No matter if you’re driving a new, used, or certified pre-owned vehicle during your commute to San Francisco, the importance of sticking with OEM parts for repairs or modifications remains the same. Repairing your vehicle with OEM car parts ensures a longer lifespan and superior performance, among other benefits. Learn more about why it’s recommended to stick with MINI OEM parts from the service pros at East Bay MINI, below!
Why Use OEM Parts?
OEM stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer, meaning in our case that your OEM parts are coming directly from MINI and are built to meet the exact specifications of your MINI Cooper or MINI Countryman.
As you shop around for the parts you need to complete your repair or modification project, you’re likely to come across some non-OEM or aftermarket options that may be cheaper in price. It’s important to note, however, that aftermarket options are not affiliated with and not made by the original manufacturer of your vehicle. For this reason, they don’t often provide a proper fit for your vehicle, which can affect the performance and function of your car significantly.
There are numerous reasons to stick with OEM car parts for your Oakland vehicle, including:
Superior Fit – OEM parts are manufactured to suit your vehicle and your vehicle only, so you can rest assured you’ll always get a just-right fit. Highly skilled and trained engineers have spent a great amount of time to ensure this.
Superior Quality – MINI OEM parts are built to match the high quality of the original components you’re replacing, so you can expect them to last just as long and hold up just as well.
Warranty Coverage – When you choose to have your OEM car parts ordered and installed by a certified dealership like East Bay MINI, you can also get warranty coverage and support to protect your investment.
Ease of Ordering – When you shop aftermarket parts, you’re likely to find a dizzying amount of options, making it difficult to pin down exactly what you need. OEM parts, on the other hand, offer a smaller more specific selection, so it’s quick and easy to locate the right part for your model and year.
