As your BMW gets up there in age, so do the parts working together to keep your BMW running at optimal performance. When your BMW parts begin to age, you will need to visit a local BMW repair shop, like Bavarian Rennsport, to replace the parts on your BMW. Now the question you must ask yourself, should you choose BMW OEM parts or aftermarket BMW parts?
Original equipment manufacturer, or OEM, parts are exactly what they sound like: replacement parts made directly by the manufacturer for your BMW. These parts are the same parts that were installed in your BMW the day it left the factory. Aftermarket parts are replacement parts that are made by a supplier, not your vehicle’s manufacturer.
Best Quality, Pricing & Warranty
The benefits of OEM parts include that they have been tested and approved by the manufacturer for quality and safety, and they stick to high standards that aftermarket parts don’t typically meet. Additionally, OEM parts generally include a warranty, while aftermarket parts do not include a warranty.
Although aftermarket parts are less expensive, the quality is usually not as good, and it could end up costing you more in the long run if the part is defective or doesn’t hold up. That is a big risk, especially without a warranty protecting how much you spend out of pocket to replace the part(s).
Best Compatibility & Availability
For maximum BMW performance, the safest route is to go with a part that will fit your BMW properly. OEM parts are designed specifically by BMW, so you know they will fit accordingly, whereas aftermarket parts may not fit properly.
With aftermarket parts, you also have to consider that there are more available to choose from, which can make sourcing parts frustrating and confusing for you when purchasing. To avoid any confusion, it is always in your best interest to use OEM parts so you can be confident they’re going to work.
In the end, choosing OEM parts or aftermarket parts for your BMW is really up to you. At Bavarian Rennsport, we recommend OEM parts. We have the most parts pricing, and we commit to our customers that we will always source the most affordable parts on the most efficient timelines. Request pricing for your BMW parts online here.
I was delivered great service, a fixed car, and a peace of mind. Definitely keeping these guys for future services! Thank you for keeping it stress free for this military wife! My husband and I sure do appreciate it.
Took my 1995 BMW M3 to THE BMW GUYS for a tune-up and performance upgrades. I was more than pleased with my repairs and the customer service is over the top. The Bavarian Rennsport family are welcoming and always willing to help… even on Sunday nights and I needed my car for work Monday morning.
I left the dealership and other local vendors in the area. I won’t be looking back, because of low cost and BMW certified Techs that care about their work. These are the best professionals in town to service your vehicle.
For years my wedding ring has done its job as being the sparkle in my eye until my husband surprised me with a fully built Z4M. Bavarian did an over the top job building me a daily driver that is also great for track days. Now I can race with my husband rather than just watch
You guys do great work and have good prices very much appreciated thank you guys for everything
I must say Bavarian is the best BMW repair shop in Jacksonville. After spending several hundreds of dollars at the BMW Dealership my problem with my vacuum lines kept coming back. The BMW Guys found the issue added a new clamp and solved the problem. These guys know their BMWs.
