BMW has been a popular car brand for decades, and many drivers enjoy the speed and handling of these luxurious vehicles.
Your BMW is a luxury car. It deserves to be treated like one. You probably already make sure to maintain and service the vehicle as necessary such as oil changes, tire rotations, transmission flushes, and keeping the liquids at optimal levels. If you take such good care of your car’s mechanics, it’s just as important to take care of the auto body!
OEM, or original equipment manufacturer, parts can be more expensive than cheap aftermarket products. For this reason, some shops use aftermarket or “alternative” parts to cut costs. However, they are passing inferior workmanship onto you. This could mean parts that corrode and wear out faster, look uneven with the rest of the car, or even damage the structural integrity of your vehicle. OEM parts are specially made for your model vehicle; they are designed to fit and match perfectly, so you never have to worry about seams not lining up. Aftermarket parts can give you an inferior ride or cause more repairs down the line. OEM BMW parts are the same quality and exact design as when the vehicle was built in the factory. By using OEM BMW parts, auto body professionals ensure that your car remains at top performance.

You may have heard the term OEM over and over again and wonder what it means and the burning question: is OEM the same as original?
OEM stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer, and indicates that the manufacturer was the original producer of the part – fenders, quarter panels, headlight cover, grills, etc – when the car was built. In car lingo, original parts are used to refer to the parts that the car is assembled with in the factory. Every piece of the car as it exits the factory is an original part. Anything that is replaced, including a tail light, is no longer an original part. However, OEM parts are the same as the original in the sense that they are made by the same manufacturer, with the same materials, to the same specifications. OEM parts are markedly different than aftermarket parts. Aftermarket parts have questionable quality; while they may be cheaper, they also may be inferior and more likely to show uneven wear, not align with the seams of the car, and break down over time. By using OEM parts car owners know that they not only receive a vehicle that is completely returned to factory standard in appearance, they also know their car is restored in structural integrity as well.
After a collision, your car may need repairs to the body. While the replacement parts will not be original to the vehicle, they will be OEM parts that seamlessly fit in with your vehicle and ensure its resale value, structural integrity, and restored appearance. Cline Collision Center always uses OEM parts and proper repair procedures and equipment, which is why we are recognized by so many auto makers as a factory approved facility.

Many car enthusiasts know MOPAR; we even saw a beautiful Dodge Challenger custom painted with a MOPAR logo emblazoned on the front fender in Santa Rosa recently. All this talk of MOPAR might lead some people to ask…..what does it mean?
MOPAR is a blending of the words Motor and Parts (much like the blending of breakfast and lunch creates brunch). It’s the customer care, service, and parts organization within Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. Starting in the 1930s the name was introduced as a brand within Chrysler, for example on MOPAR oil filters and antifreeze. It remains the parts manufacturer and service provider within the auto brand, and has even released custom vehicles under the MOPAR name.
Although it’s the parts and service arm of the auto maker, the term has become a word for any Chrysler-made vehicle. So you might hear many Chrysler, Plymouth, Imperial, Ram, or Jeep vehicles referred to as MOPAR.
