Advantages of Mercedes-Benz OEM Parts

This means they’re made from more superior materials than Mercedes-Benz aftermarket parts, and have been designed specifically for your particular make and model which ensures a precise fit and improved performance.
  • When you purchase genuine Mercedes-Benz OEM parts, your purchase comes backed by the protection of the Mercedes-Benz Parts Limited Warranty. If something goes wrong with the part you’ve purchased, we’ll fix the problem and get you back on the road.
