Why buy genuine parts?
Volkswagen and ŠKODA Genuine Parts® are designed and engineered by the vehicle manufacturer, they are what your Volkswagen or ŠKODA was built with on the production line and as such are the only way to ensure that your Volkswagen or ŠKODA performs and protects you as designed.
The non-Genuine Parts® are known as aftermarket, universal or “OEM” parts – these parts are not the same as our Genuine Parts®. Genuine Parts® are produced under Volkswagen AG’s Formula Q quality assurance program. Any parts manufacturer producing parts used in the production of your Volkswagen or ŠKODA must be manufactured according to Formula Q’s stringent quality guidelines, these manufacturers can and do produce pattern or similar parts for your Volkswagen or ŠKODA, but as they are not Genuine Parts® and do not carry our logos, you cannot be assured that they are of the same quality and will perform the same as Genuine Parts®
