It is always possible that you are on the road in your car and certain car parts suddenly show a defect. It doesn’t matter where exactly this defect occurs, for instance a rear light is malfunctioning or the dashboard signals a faulty display, or in more serious cases even features such as clutch, steering, brakes or even the tires are not working properly: The car is no longer roadworthy in the conventional sense.
In such a situation, the first question that arises is whether the vehicle and its driver can still make it to the next garage safely, or whether a possibly expensive breakdown service is required.
Whatever the answer, you will receive various offers in the workshop to get the defective parts replaced. This can be more or less expensive; as a rule, many people are concerned about the condition of their vehicle and the prospect of an immediate and quick repair and tend to accept these offers no questions asked.
However, it is highly advisable to quickly distance oneself from the acceptance of such offers, to reconsider the situation and to consider buying the spare parts oneself. In many cases, the range of spare parts offered by even reliable garages consists of cheap products in order to make the purchase of these parts more attractive.
It is therefore highly recommended to use original parts, especially for high-quality manufacturer brands such as BMW or Mercedes. You may have to spend a little more money for this, but by doing so you can ensure that your car accepts the spare parts as such (comparable to the after-effects of a human organ transplant) and the vehicle’s lifespan won’t get shortened.
Especially for Mercedes models like AMG it is highly recommended that you use Mercedes Benz spare parts in order not to endanger the long-term functionality of your car.
