Do you need new Alfa Romeo parts for your car or SUV? Can’t figure out which part is best? We’re outlining OEM, remanufactured, and aftermarket parts at Helfman Alfa Romeo of Sugar Land to help you figure out just what you need.
What are OEM Parts?
When you want genuine Alfa Romeo replacement parts, consider Original Equipment Manufacturer parts, otherwise known as OEM parts. These parts are produced by the same manufacturers that make new Alfa Romeo vehicles.
There are many perks to choosing OEM parts:
- Superior quality
- Warranty coverage
- Will be shaped and sized appropriately
- Will work the way they are intended
What are Remanufactured Parts?
Remanufactured parts are pre-owned OEM parts. They have been cleaned and any faulty or worn components have been replaced. They may still look a little worn but will work as good as new. Typically, remanufactured parts are more affordable than OEM parts and they are also more eco-friendly.
What are Aftermarket Parts?
Aftermarket parts are part of a secondary market in the auto industry. These parts are not genuine replacement parts. While they can sometimes still work as well as genuine parts, this is never guaranteed.
Car owners often consider aftermarket parts because they can be more affordable. However, these parts usually cost less because they don’t have the same quality that a genuine part has, and they don’t usually include warranty coverage either.
Plus, because they are mass-produced for many makes and models, they may not even fit or work appropriately in your vehicle. This could end up causing issues in your vehicle and costing you more in the long run.
