THE MAJORITY OF THE PARTS WE USE ARE OE, OEM OR BETTER.
Sean has found that in some cases the aftermarket parts are built to last longer; therefore, offering a longer warranty. A quarter of a century of experience has taught us that often the problem is the design/manufacturing of the original part. Before computer designed cars, there was no real way to know what would happen to a part years down the road. Plastics have evolved. Metallurgy has improved. And the heat and sand in the Coachella Valley is pretty much on the edge of most car design envelopes. What Sean has discovered is that often an “aftermarket” part is a better part. A part made with the knowledge of why the OE part could have lasted longer or performed better. Now “aftermarket” has some real negative press that is primarily “encouraged” by the automobile manufactures (they make money on the inventory of parts they have made). And the dealers shy away and steer you away from third-party parts for their own reasons. International Motors does not have these conflicts of your interest. IM uses the parts that working on these cars has demonstrated gives owners the best repair and value.
