Land Rover Aftermarket Parts
Sometimes, Land Rover owners get accused of being a bit fussy. They won't use anything but OEM parts for their vehicles. While this is understandable – there are a few issues about Land Rover aftermarket parts vs. OEM – these folks may be doing themselves a disservice and may wind up missing out on some of the terrific deals that we offer on reliable, high-quality aftermarket Land Rover parts, from Land Rover wheels to custom exhaust systems.
One of the reasons that aficionados are hesitant to buy Land Rover parts aftermarket rather than OEM is that they are afraid such parts are of a lower quality. Another reason that prevents them from taking advantage of PartsGeek's low prices on Land Rover aftermarket parts is that for newer vehicles, they are afraid that the use of such parts will void their warranties.
In some rare cases, these concerns may be justified...but not often.
First of all, let's address the quality issue. First of all, PartsGeek.com will not carry any Land Rover parts, aftermarket or otherwise, that fail to meet high standards for quality and reliability. Secondly, there are two big reasons as to why those aftermarket parts are often better than the original. The first of these reasons is that when the original (OEM) part is deconstructed and analyzed by a licensed third-party manufacturer, the engineers find ways to improve upon the original design. The second reason has to do with the market itself; competition among third-party manufacturers of auto parts is practically Darwinian. In this "eat-or-be-eaten" business environment, there's some serious motivation to turn out a good quality product and offer it at a reasonable price.
There is one other reason to use aftermarket parts, and that's availability. While OEM parts may be in short supply (and in fact, for older models, not even made anymore), aftermarket parts are usually quite easy to get.
Finally, we want to address the warranty issue. If your Land Rover is five years or older and has more than 50,000 miles on it, this probably is not an issue at all, since most warranties don't go longer than that (though some cover 100,000 miles these days). If your Land Rover is still under warranty however, you should not have to worry about using aftermarket parts unless they modify the vehicle's performance or handling in some way. For example, if you replacing the stock exhaust system with a custom performance one by say, Magnaflow, you may wind up voiding your warranty. In this kind of case, it's best to contact the dealer before investing in such performance parts. On the other hand, as long as the aftermarket component is a direct replacement for a stock one, you should not have any problems with maintaining your warranty.
The folks at PartsGeek first hung out their shingle in 1996, then moved onto the Internet in 2002. Since then, we've become one of the most trusted resources on the World Wide Web when it comes to Land Rover wheels, body parts, engine and drive train components and more. Your order is on its way to you within 24 hours, and you pay actual shipping costs – we don't try to make shipping another profit center by artificially inflating "handling fees." If you need your order right away, we also offer deals on overnight and second-day delivery, so don't hesitate to call up our U.S. (not India) – based customer service department during normal business hours on the East Coast.
I ordered on Tuesday and received on Thursday!!! I'm very satisfied!!
Part arrived loked okay ...installed. I would encourage a rating system on your parts so people have a reasonable expectation on the condition. In some cases you don't care what a part looks like as it may never be seen and it may be worth it to save a few dollars and buy the banged up part. In other cases people buy used but they expect new or like new. In each case a rating system would be a good idea
