No. We always recommend using genuine parts and sometimes it is the very best option, however we appreciate that may come at a cost. Original Equipment Manufactured (OEM) parts are often a very sensible and cost effective option and we are happy to fit these, some parts are often exactly the same as what you would purchase from Mercedes-Benz! For example, most electronic sensors are made by Bosch, Pierburg and VDO. Brakes are supplied to Mercedes-Benz by ATE, Brembo and TMD Frictions whilst suspension components are manufactured by Lemförder all of which are available and at a much reduced cost but in no way compromises on quality. Of course we always try to repair existing components where possible either at our specialist workshop or by out sourcing it to a specialist company dealing in that expert field.
