Yes, you absolutely have a choice. Here at C&R Collision Repair, we prefer to use OEM parts. They are superior in terms of fit and quality. However, if an insurance company paid for alternative parts instead of OEM parts there are still other avenues. OEM manufacturers have conquest programs that allow them to sell original parts to shops for the same price as an aftermarket one. Every job written with alternative parts that goes through our shop gets submitted to the OEM dealer for price match. While not every part qualifies, most do. If you would like OEM parts only, we are willing to work with you to help you get them.
