The most obvious advantage to using a genuine manufacturer part is that it is exactly the part that you are replacing, complete with markings and all. For some car owners, this isn’t a big deal. But for car fanatics and brand enthusiasts, having the exact part makes all the difference, and can have an effect on the resale value down the road.
Another advantage of a genuine manufacturer part is that it guarantees your performance characteristics won’t be changed. For highly-tuned cars, this is of great importance – an extra ounce here or an extra centimeter there can drastically alter how your vehicle performs. A genuine manufacturer part will not alter performance at all.
For many exotic and luxury car brands, such as Bentley, Rolls Royce, Jaguar, and others we are familiar with servicing at Naples Premium Collision Center, genuine manufacturer parts are a necessity. This is due to the fact that these vehicles are often custom-made tailored to specific styles and needs. For some of them, there won’t even be OEM or aftermarket parts available. For instance, a new front fender for a Maserati can only be found in one place.
