Mercedes-Benz OEM Parts vs. Aftermarket Parts

car auto parts



Is your new or pre-owned Mercedes-Benz in need of new parts? Are you wondering whether you should go with low-cost aftermarket parts from a South Riding retailer, or is the price of OEM parts is worth it? While generic parts are less expensive, there are some compelling reasons why Mercedes-Benz OEM parts should be your only choice. Compare Mercedes-Benz OEM parts vs. aftermarket parts below to learn more about the benefits of refusing to settle for less than the best.

Mercedes-Benz OEM Parts

It’s true — OEM parts do cost more than aftermarket parts, but there are many good reasons as to why.

  • Warranty: OEM parts are backed by the Mercedes-Benz parts limited warranty, which protects you from any manufacturing defect for 12-months from the date of purchase.
  • Peace of Mind: Using aftermarket parts can put your car’s warranty coverage in jeopardy. If you install an inferior part in your luxury vehicle and a problem arises, you can lose your coverage if it can be proven that the part caused the problem in question.
  • Proper Fit: OEM parts are designed to fit the part your replacing — no modification to your vehicle or the part is necessary.
  • Quality: Mercedes-Benz parts are engineered to be the same high-quality equipment as factory original, giving you a longer life and greater use than many aftermarket parts could ever afford.
  • Ease: Unlike auto parts shops around South Riding, who have options that “should” fit a range of vehicles of similar models, we can find the correct part in minutes. No guesswork involved.

Mercedes-Benz Performance Parts

Aftermarket accessories can improve the way a vehicle runs and handles, but genuine Mercedes-Benz performance parts are guaranteed to fit, work as advertised, and enhance the performance and value of your vehicle. Not to mention, Mercedes-Benz performance parts are made of much higher quality materials than your average aftermarket part and will last longer, ensuring you get your money’s worth. Some available options include:

  • AMG® package
  • AMG® performance parts
  • ECO-START®
  • Adjustable suspension for comfort, handling, or sporty driving
