Land Rover OEM Parts
Land Rover owners can be pretty fussy when it comes to the issue of whether it's best to use Land Rover OEM parts or aftermarket components. They'll go to great lengths to find the best deals on original Land Rover parts when installed Land Rover factory parts have worn out. On the other hand, when it comes to insurance work, there's a strong tendency to want to use cheaper aftermarket parts because of course it costs them less.
Fortunately, even the most hard-core aficionado doesn't have to go any further than PartsGeek.com, where they'll find the lowest prices on all their parts needs right here in our Land Rover OEM parts catalog.
However, for even greater savings, they shouldn't simply discount aftermarket substitutes out of hand. Here's why.
Now, as you are probably aware, OEM Land Rover Parts are from the "Original Equipment Manufacturer" (that's what the OEM stands for). Of course, these days where manufacturing companies are "outsourcing" everything to the lowest bidder (great for them – not so great for the rest of us, but that's a whole other rant), one never really knows where "OEM" parts may come from. The bottom line however is that original Land Rover parts are those that were originally designed by the company that manufactured the vehicle, and these are the parts that were installed when you bought it from the dealer. When you take your Land Rover back to the dealership, their repair and service people will invariably use Land Rover factory parts. This generally costs more, but most Land Rover owners are willing to pay those higher costs. However, when you log on to PartsGeek.com and take a look at our online Land Rover parts catalog, you'll discover some outrageous discounts on genuine Land Rover parts from the factory – so if you do your own repair and maintenance, you'll be that much further ahead.
Now, those who take their vehicles to independent shops for maintenance and repair may find that unless they specifically request the use of OEM Land Rover parts, they're going to wind up getting aftermarket parts. Alternatively, do-it-yourselfers may find that Land Rover OEM parts aren't necessarily available when they need them – but aftermarket parts are usually pretty easy to get hold of. One thing you should be aware of is that using aftermarket components is not necessarily a bad thing. In fact, though the quality of aftermarket substitutes can vary, in general they are as reliable as their OEM counterparts – and in many cases, even better.
There are many reasons for this; often, when an OEM part is reverse-engineered, the designer at an aftermarket manufacturing company often finds room for improvement on the original part. There's also a lot of market competition among companies that provide aftermarket components – so there's plenty of incentive to keep quality high and prices low.
Finally, you are protected by the fact that PartsGeek.com will not sell aftermarket components for the Land Rover or anything else unless it meets our standards for quality and reliability. We stand behind our product offerings with a twelve-month guarantee – if it doesn't work, send it back for a replacement or refund!
You should also know that we do not pad our shipping with extraneous "handling fees" – which saves you even more when it comes to doing business with PartsGeek.com – your Internet source for discounts on everything auto-related.
I was astounded when this item arrived next day after I had ordered it, and for free shipping too. Further, when PartsGeek said that this part was genuine, genuine Land Rover; I was skeptical, but it certainly was, and at a price lower than numerous other places I checked. Thanks again, PartsGeek; I will be ordering from you again.
I did not no I was getting a genuine muffler. I was very happy. Now I no I have a good part and not after market. Awesome.
