Every BMW vehicle has been built to achieve superb performance on Carlsbad roads. So when your BMW needs replacement parts, you’ll need to make a choice: BMW OEM parts or aftermarket parts? Research the benefits of BMW parts vs. aftermarket parts here at BMW of Escondido.

What Does “OEM” Mean?

When you buy BMW OEM replacement parts, you’re buying “Original Equipment Manufacturer” parts. But what exactly does this term mean? BMW OEM parts are manufactured and approved by BMW, which means they are exactly the same in terms of dimensions and materials quality as the original part that’s being replaced. So if you end up buying replacement parts for your BMW X3 or BMW X1, you’ll want parts optimally designed for your investment.

Why Should I Choose BMW OEM Replacement Parts Over Aftermarket Parts?

  • Performance – Each part of your BMW has been designed to work together with the other components of your BMW. In doing so, these parts achieve maximum output, efficiency, and response. Choosing BMW OEM parts ensures you get all three.
  • Durability – BMW OEM parts are built to last. With meticulous design and high quality materials, BMW parts sure are durable. When you choose aftermarket parts,
  • Warranty – When you buy BMW OEM parts, you’ll be able to count on a generous 2-year/unlimited mileage warranty from BMW. Some aftermarket parts don’t come with a warranty.
  • Selection – At our San Diego-area BMW parts center, you’ll be able to find a comprehensive selection of the parts you need and knowledgeable parts experts.
