OEM Repair

OEM Repair in Opelika/Auburn, AL

Truly Restoring Your Car

What Does OEM Mean?

We repair vehicles to OEM specifications using OEM parts, which means the parts are made by the same company that makes the vehicle. OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer – in other words, we won’t be using aftermarket parts that aren’t up to the same quality you’ve expected from the company that engineered and built your vehicle. Our garage is the only non-DRP collision repair shop in the area, and we chose to go that route because we’re in the business of serving customers, not in helping insurance companies make more money. DRP collision repair shops will often be expected to use aftermarket parts in order to save money. Still, it’s more important to us to use high-quality parts straight from the manufacturer, which is precisely why we offer OEM repairs at our shop.

Advantages of OEM Parts

There are many advantages to choosing OEM replacement parts, as opposed to the alternative. OEM parts have the same technical specifications as the parts your car came with, and they’re designed and manufactured to fit correctly. The quality of OEM parts is identical to the parts that were originally installed in your car, so they’re not going to have any compatibility issues, which can be a thing with generic parts. OEM parts are also more reliable and perform better than generic parts, so you won’t have to worry about a decrease in the functionality of your car, and you won’t have to take it in for repairs as soon as you’d have to if you chose the alternative. Although it may seem like you’d save money buying generic parts, choosing an OEM part will also save you money in the long run because the parts are more reliable and more compatible with your car. So to restore your car back to its original form, OEM parts are the way to go.
