What is a ‘genuine’ part?

A genuine part is any component that has been engineered or supplied by the manufacturer whose model it relates to. They are precisely engineered to the same specification as an original item to make sure they fit first time and correct an issue fully. The quality of these parts is almost always backed by a warranty that protects you from poor materials or workmanship.

High-quality design

The competitive nature of the motoring industry means that manufacturers cannot afford to produce sub-par components that deteriorate quickly. Genuine parts are therefore durable and reliable in both build and material. Strict quality-control measures are also taken in the form of testing, which highlights any manufacturing issues.

Boost reliability and safety

When these high-quality components are fitted they help your vehicle to perform exactly as it should for longer. You can trust that the new item will last for thousands of miles without causing a breakdown and without jeopardising your safety. Using genuine parts for the brakes, wheels, steering, and other crucial areas is especially important for this reason.

Higher residual values

As well as maintaining the reliability, safety and efficient performance of your vehicle, genuine parts can preserve its residual value for longer. That is because these components prolong the model’s useable life.
