Genuine parts Are tested and
proven to maintain a lifetime of reliable,
comfortable and safe driving

Genuine parts are fitted

Genuine parts fit right, first time. Insisting on genuine parts will keep your car running reliably and looking good.

Non-genuine body parts can leave unsightly panel gaps. They can prevent vehicle performance or safety systems from working as intended. Staying genuine protects you, your passengers, and your investment.

Genuine parts are proven

Extreme temperatures, bone shaking bumps, multiple lifetimes of opens and closes. These are the kinds of tests your car’s components are subjected to, before they are offered for sale.

Vehicle manufacturers use expansive testing facilities, called proving grounds, to validate every single part, down to individual nuts and bolts. Genuine parts go through thousands of hours of robust, exhaustive test regimens to make sure they will keep up with your lifestyle, no matter where you’re headed.

Genuine parts are tested

Vehicle safety ratings take the car makers’ hard work and smash it into a wall. In addition to car makers crash testing their own safety systems, recognised vehicle safety agencies use these crash tests to determine objective safety ratings that serve as a guide to consumers.

Crash testing is performed with new cars made solely of genuine parts. Modern cars are complex systems. Changing one part, even parts that seem like that may make no difference to crash performance, can change the way that system protects vehicle occupants and other road users. Changing one part can change everything when microseconds count.

Genuine parts are maintained

Every repair on your car, from accident damage to a simple oil change, should be performed with a repair procedure from the manufacturer. These procedures are equally as important to maintaining vehicle integrity and safety. Without genuine parts, they cannot be followed correctly.

A correctly maintained car doesn’t just look great and get you where you’re going. Proper maintenance ensures the car’s resale value is retained. By insisting on genuine parts and looking after your car with factory or dealer servicing, your car will look after you.

Have they been genuine?

If your vehicle has been repaired after a crash or as part of general maintenance, it’s possible that non-genuine parts have been fitted without your knowledge.

Non-genuine parts can’t necessarily promise the same quality and safety attributes that come with a genuine part.

If your vehicle needs replacement parts following a collision or during servicing and maintenance, it is essential that genuine parts are fitted. Genuine parts are new and the only parts approved and warranted by the vehicle’s maker.

You can only guarantee you will get genuine parts by sourcing them through the vehicle maker’s authorised supply chain — use anything else and you may be taking a risk.
