Mercedes-Benz OEM Parts vs. Mercedes-Benz Aftermarket Parts

Man Fixing Car

If you’re looking to update your vehicle or you have a repair that needs completing, you’ll have two clear choices for a Mercedes-Benz parts source. You can choose to utilize genuine Mercedes-Benz OEM parts, or you can opt for Mercedes-Benz aftermarket parts. No matter what kind of job you’re taking on, you’ll find that the longer-lasting repairs and better fitting parts are achieved using the genuine OEM sources.

Why Choose Genuine Mercedes-Benz OEM Parts?

What are Mercedes-Benz aftermarket parts, anyway? These are components manufactured by a third party without the explicit approval of Mercedes-Benz. Although they’re often based on the original components, they are not and cannot be identical copies, and they aren’t guaranteed to live up to the standards of Mercedes-Benz.

If you’re comparing Mercedes-Benz OEM parts vs. Mercedes-Benz aftermarket parts, there are several things that you’ll want to keep in mind from the get-go:

  • Genuine Mercedes-Benz OEM parts are produced according to the same standards used in your vehicle’s initial construction. That means the fit is exactly the same as the parts that were used to build your Mercedes-Benz.
  • The warranty that Mercedes-Benz OEM parts carry is much more extensive than their aftermarket replicas, which means that you have the added comfort of knowing that if anything goes wrong with the installation, or if the part is defective, you have support to fall back on if necessary.
  • The market for aftermarket parts is flooded with a multitude of options. Some of these Mercedes-Benz aftermarket parts carry a good reputation and warranty, but there are also sources that offer no back-up when things go awry.
  • If you choose Mercedes-Benz aftermarket parts, you’ll need to do all the research yourself, and read reviews to make sure that you’re not wasting your time and money. With OEM parts, there’s just one tool for each job–and it’s right here at Mercedes-Benz of Greenwich.

If you want to be sure that you’ve made the right choice, ordering Mercedes-Benz OEM parts from a reputable dealership is always the smart choice. If you’re near Stamford or New Canaan, it’s easy to find exactly what you need at Mercedes-Benz of Greenwich.
