Volkswagen OEM Parts

Volkswagen OEM parts or aftermarket?

It's a matter of often heated debate. On the one hand, Volkswagen factory parts usually cost more. Of course, if you are still driving a classic air-cooled Beetle or bus from the 1960s, 70s or 80s, you may not even have an option – since Volkswagen stopped making parts and accessories for those vehicles years ago. Otherwise, you may be surprised to learn that in most cases, it doesn't matter whether you use original Volkswagen parts or not – except of course the aftermarket versions usually cost less.

Hard to Find Aftermarket and OEM Replacement Parts

If you are determined to use factory parts however, you'll definitely find the best pricing in our Volkswagen OEM parts catalog on our complete selection of VW components for all models.

For the two or three of you reading this who weren't aware of the fact, the initials "OEM" are an acronym for "Original Equipment Manufacturer." These are the genuine Volkswagen parts that come straight from the factory in Germany. When you take your late-model VW to the dealer for repairs, chances are that all they are going to use are VW OEM parts. This costs a bit more. On the other hand, if the vehicle is damaged in a collision or other type of accident or vandalism, you may wind up taking it to a repair service authorized by your insurer. Naturally, an insurer is going to insist on aftermarket components, which are a close alternative, because it'll save them a buck or two (or even three).

Not necessarily. In fact, Volkswagen factory parts are not necessarily better than their aftermarket versions. While all popular products from our Volkswagen OEM parts catalog come with a one-year guarantee from PartsGeek, you may find it advantageous to buy aftermarket Volkswagen parts.

Should you be concerned about the Quality of Aftermarket Parts?

Now, the quality of aftermarket parts and accessories can vary a great deal from one manufacturer to another. However, often they are not only equal to, but actually in some cases better than VW OEM or genuine parts. There are a couple of reasons for this. One is that when it comes to creating an aftermarket replacement for Volkswagen OEM parts, these are usually "reverse-engineered." During this process, it is possible that design flaws are discovered in the genuine part – giving the aftermarket manufacturer a golden opportunity to make improvements.

It doesn't always work out this way – but since the automotive aftermarket is extremely competitive, there is some serious incentive to keep the quality high and the prices low.

The other good thing about aftermarket components is that they are virtually always available when and as you need them – whereas sometimes it can be tricky to get your hands on original factory equipment Volkswagen parts.
