Another vehicle hit mine, and the offending driver has offered to pay for repairs and a rental vehicle. That said, he is being cheap about using OEM vs. after-market parts.
I have noticed that after-market parts are approximately half of the cost of the OEM parts but have been advised that, in some instances, the after-market parts may not fit correctly.
Moreover, I have been told that insurance companies generally require the use of after-market parts for repairs.
My vehicle is a 2006 Acura MDX with white pearlescent paint. Am I going to see a difference in quality?
