SEARCHING FOR AN AUTO PART:

Do you offer new and used parts?
iAutoBodyParts sells only new, certified aftermarket products.
Why are there different options for the same part?
There are multiple specifications on all auto parts, even for something as simple as a door mirror (passenger vs. driver side; heated vs. non-heated). Be careful when reading the parts description to ensure you are selecting the correct option for your vehicle.

What is an aftermarket part? :
- Aftermarket parts are made by a company other than the original manufacturer. These parts are made to fit and perform as well as the original.
- Aftermarket companies buy the rights to produce these parts. Even though some might have a slightly different look, they perform as well as the OEM part. And they are priced much less making them a very good value.
- The products offered by iAutoBodyParts are designed to match the specifications of an OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer).
What are certified aftermarket parts? :
A 3rd party company has developed and oversees test programs to guarantee the suitability and quality of automotive parts. The tests of these companies include the following: dimensional verification, life and durability requirements, quality and appearance.
Will having aftermarket parts reduce the value of my vehicle? :
Generally- no. However, there are many insurance companies who have authorized the use of aftermarket parts to be used as replacement for damaged OEM parts. For many aftermarket products installed on a vehicle, it is extremely difficult to tell the difference. In many repair instances, aftermarket replacement products could save some vehicle from being "totaled" by an insurance company.
PRODUCT SPECIFIC QUESTIONS :
Can I have my part color matched with my vehicle?
All parts are primed and ready to be painted (unless chrome plated.) We do not offer pre-painted parts, as it is not possible to color match without access to your vehicle. Please consult your body shop or collision center for installation and painting needs.
Are light bulbs included with the purchase of any light product? (NOTE: not full assembly?)
Generally, bulbs are not included with the purchase of lighting assemblies. However some manufacturers may include bulbs with their housings. Unfortunately, we cannot confirm which items include bulbs through our site, but you may contact the warehouse directly to verify before picking up the item.
Are the wheels new or used?
Wheels are the only items that are not new...they are remanufactured items. Some OEM wheels came with emblems on it as a part of the factory wheel. Those wheels will have emblems as a part of the finished product.
How do I know if I am ordering the correct side for my car?
In the automotive industry LH = Drivers Side and RH = Passengers Side.
