Kits are representative of all of the parts you need to do the job right the first time. They often include hardware and other small problem items that save you time and effort. Parts inside kits typically represent the best value using Genuine, OEM, and Aftermarket parts.
Genuine parts are the current items being sold through the dealer network in the dealer packaging. These are most likely the original parts installed on your car at the factory but may also have changed manufacturers.
OEM parts are made by manufacturers either previously or currently supplying the dealer network. Oftentimes these items in the manufacturer box are the same as the dealer item at a significant savings.
Aftermarket parts are made by alternative manufacturers often for a significant savings. BSM Autoparts only works with premium aftermarket suppliers to ensure quality and value.
Performance parts are often an upgrade to or serve some sort of alternative purpose to the stock parts. Sometimes performance parts can be universal and require adaption or may be for off-road or racing applications or upgrades to your daily driver.
Used parts are removed from the core of the original equipment on a used vehicle. Examples include starters, alternators, brake calipers, and steering racks.
