REQUEST PARTS-INFO OUR HELP DURING YOUR SEARCH FOR SPARE PARTS ORIGINAL OR LICENSED SPARE PARTS REPLICAS

In a typical car, only about 20% of the parts are developed and produced by the respective vehicle manufacturer. These are primarily engines and body panels. The remaining parts are developed and manufactured by the so-called “original equipment manufacturers”. Crucial for the vehicle manufacturer are the production volume and the production run, at the end of the day. Economic efficiency is the priority here. 

This is also due to the fact that parts production - especially for historic vehicles - is often discontinued if the so-called "critical quantity" is not achieved. This gap is often filled by smaller companies. Not infrequently, these then painstakingly reproduce the spare parts in meticulous detail - mostly of high quality and quantity.

Due to the size of companies and "lack of contacts in the right places", these companies are often unable to offer or even communicate their high-quality products to the global market. Another problem is parts produced in low-wage countries from inferior materials, inadequate design and manufacturing know-how. 

So how can you, as an end user, appraiser or workshop, immediately know whether you are buying, evaluating or even distinguishing between a high quality or a low quality replacement part?

As the owner, appraiser and workshop, you can best protect yourself against incorrect purchases. In this way, your classic gem gets authenticated at its next Road Safety Test or perhaps increases in value.
