Genuine Car Parts in Paddock Wood
Does the Price of Aftermarket Parts Make a Difference?

If you use a dealership garage in the Paddock Wood area for repairs, it is reassuring to know that the mechanics doing the job will use manufacturer car parts. Use an independent workshop and, unless you specifically request genuine car parts in advance, you will find that the mechanics normally use aftermarket car parts. Is it wrong to take the aftermarket route, and are there any situations which demand the use of OEM car parts?

Lenco Motor Spares, located in Royal Tunbridge Wells, is a supplier of both manufacturer and aftermarket products.

To strike the right balance and make more informed choices, it helps to know a little more about genuine car parts and their aftermarket counterparts. By doing so, you should be able to hit the perfect spot with price and component quality.

What are Aftermarket Car Parts?

It is best to think of aftermarket car parts as any components which don’t come from the original manufacturer. A direct like-for-like replacement shouldn’t have an impact on existing warranties, but we recommend that motorists from the Paddock Wood area always check with their preferred repairer before committing to the use of aftermarket motor spares.

We advise that you always choose a reputable repairer.

Dealership garages in Paddock Wood always quote for genuine motor spares and do not use aftermarket alternatives.
