Mercedes-Benz OEM Parts vs. Aftermarket Parts

OEM parts

Although aftermarket parts are less expensive than OEM parts, the phrase, “you get what you pay for” rings especially true. If your new or Certified Pre-Owned Mercedes-Benz needs repairs, it’s best to avoid the hassles aftermarket parts can cause and choose genuine OEM parts from the start. There are numerous benefits to using only OEM parts, such as a better fit and warranty protection. Read on to learn more about aftermarket vs. OEM parts, as well as the Mercedes-Benz performance parts we have available.

What Are the Advantages of Mercedes-Benz Parts?

  • Perfect Fit: OEM stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer. When you buy an OEM part, you’re getting the same part that was used in the manufacturing of your car. This guarantees a perfect fit — free from leaks, cracking, and other issues that can arise due to poor fit.
  • Warranty Coverage: One of the greatest benefits to choosing OEM parts is warranty protection. The Mercedes-Benz Limited Warranty on genuine OEM parts protects Los Angeles customers in the event that a part they’ve purchased is defective in any way.
  • Less Stressful Shopping Experience: The market for aftermarket parts is massive, because they’re built to be used on a wide range of makes and models. Trying to find one small part can feel like an impossible feat. When you order OEM parts, however, it’s a different story. Our technicians will know exactly what you need, based on your model and trim level.

Mercedes-Benz Performance Parts

There isn’t a Mercedes-Benz on the road today that didn’t come off the assembly line with state-of-the-art performance features. However, if you’re looking to give your car a boost, there are plenty of Mercedes-Benz performance parts from which to choose. Whether you’re looking for engine upgrades or smoother handling, the right Mercedes-Benz OEM part can make all the difference. Here’s just a handful of options:

  • AMG® style packages
  • AMG® performance parts
  • ECO-START® system for improved fuel conservation
  • Steering-wheel mounted shift paddles
  • 4MATIC® all-wheel drive
  • Adjustable suspension for comfort- or sport-oriented driving

Again, this is just a glimpse into the many possibilities that await you! Our parts center and service team can help you customize your vehicle to your heart’s content.
