What Are the Benefits of OEM Parts?


If you ever need to replace one of your Porsche’s parts, you might have to choose between OEM and aftermarket. OEM standards for Original Equipment Manufacturer, so these are genuine Porsche parts whereas aftermarket parts are not certified by Porsche. Aftermarket parts are generally cheaper than OEM car parts, but you should really read on to find out what they aren’t recommended.

5 Reasons to Choose OEM Parts Over Porsche Aftermarket Parts

  1. Superior Reliability: Your Porsche will have been designed and built to the highest automotive standards. Porsche OEM parts hold to the same high standards because they carry the Porsche name.
  2. Perfect Fit: Aftermarket parts will never be an exact fit. In contrast, genuine Porsche parts will have been designed to fit your exact make and model. With a perfect fit, the part will be less likely to suffer problems in the future. Combined with the superior reliability mentioned above, that means OEM car parts are less likely to cause the expense and inconvenience of future breakdowns.
  3. Warranty Coverage: You’ll usually find that fitting your vehicle with aftermarket parts invalidates the warranty. After all, Porsche understands that reliability can suffer if OEM parts aren’t used, so it’s only natural for them to cancel coverage when such a gamble is taken.
  4. Easier Selection: In most cases, choosing an OEM part is incredibly straightforward since there will only be one part you can use. In contrast, you’ll need to consider a range of aftermarket options to find the one that fits best with your particular make and model.
  5. Better Investment: Since genuine Porsche parts are built to Porsche specifications, vehicles that have only ever been fitted with OEM parts are going to hold their value better. When you come to sell, your Porsche will probably be worth more if you used OEM parts instead of aftermarket parts. That goes double if the warranty is still eligible.
