What parts do you use?

At Foreign Autohäus, we only use Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts. These are the same parts used by the dealer, or available for purchase at the dealer over their parts counter. It is our belief, these parts offer the best value for the money, as we know they will work, are approved by the vehicle manufacturer, and fit before we remove the old part

Why should I consider an independent shop?

There are many reasons to consider using an independent shop like Foreign Autohäus. Cost is probably the most important. Generally, an independent facility will be substantially less expensive than a dealership. Dealerships have extremely high overhead that must be passed on to the customer; an independent shop's overhead will be substantially less. Foreign Autohäus uses the same diagnostic equipment as the dealership, employs only highly skilled and certified technicians, (just like a dealership), and only uses Origingal Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts. These are the same parts you would buy if you went into the deaership and bought them at the parts counter. We use OEM parts because we know they wlll work and fit everytime
