Driving a BMW is a thrilling experience, but it’s also a responsibility. Regular maintenance of your BMW vehicle ensures that it consistently performs at the exact same high-quality as the day you bought it from the dealership. One of the ways you can achieve this is by exclusively using only genuine BMW parts to repair or maintain your vehicle. Some people believe that any aftermarket part may be sufficient enough to keep your BMW going, but we’re here to tell you that isn’t always the case.
We at Edmonton BMW came up with a comprehensive list of why we think you should use genuine parts for your BMW vehicle. Don’t forget that we have additional or replacement parts right here at our dealership, whenever you need them! All you have to do is give us a call or inquire on our website.
The best benefit from using original BMW parts is the peace of mind that comes attached to it. Original BMW parts will work exactly the same way as the exact part you’re replacing. This is because it’s the same part that your BMW is manufactured with! It would be strange adding a foreign aftermarket part that may or may not work with your vehicle, so why take that chance? With original BMW parts, there’s nothing out of the ordinary about it. Everything’s familiar.
Covered Under Warranty
You’ll barely have the chance to buy new BMW parts because most of them are already covered under your warranty free of charge! Already packaged with your BMW vehicle is the standard New Car Limited Warranty which extends up to 4 years / 80,000 km worth of coverage. Some aftermarket parts may actually not even be covered under warranty and can also void it altogether.
BMW uses proprietary software to control machine-to-machine (M2M) communications for proper diagnostic readings on your BMW vehicle. Aftermarket suppliers may not have access to the exact code that makes all the components of your vehicle work together. With original BMW parts, everything will read correctly on your vehicle’s diagnostic readings because all the parts inside are 100% compatible with one another.
A Better Choice for Parts
If you go to the parts counter here at Edmonton BMW and ask for any part, typically you’ll only get one type—it’s that easy. With aftermarket parts, you’d have to worry about assessing the different quality and makes of different brands and prices of other parts. If you’re not familiar with aftermarket brands, the selection could be overwhelming, and there’s some chance you may get a bad quality part.
Improves & Maintains Quality/Efficiency
Since original BMW parts are designed to fit and perform to factory specifications, it increases the life of your equipment. While the prices for original parts may sound expensive, it actually helps you cut maintenance costs for your long-term ownership of the vehicle. With original BMW parts, you’ll save money on maintenance and reduce downtime in the long run.
These were just a few reasons why we think original BMW parts are the key to keeping your BMW vehicle in the best condition possible. If you’re in need of new parts, Edmonton BMW is your destination dealership so book an appointment with us when the time comes!
