You may not realize this, but the parts that make up your Mercedes are not necessarily manufactured by Mercedes. No cause for concern, as Mercedes designs the part, hires a manufacturer and ensures its quality to you, including a 1 year warranty. In fact, many of these manufacturers have been making parts for Mercedes for decades and are experts in their own right. In our industry these manufacturers are called OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturers) or OES (Original Equipment Suppliers), and are often brands you recognize including Hella, Bosch, Bilstein and Lemforder. Don’t be surprised to open that Genuine Mercedes parts box and find a Bosch branded part inside.
