The BMW ActiveHybrid 5 is another attempt from BMW to contribute to the world of hybrid vehicles to help the environment. The car is modeled after the 535i sedan and previewed at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show. The car was in production from 2011-2016. The car featured a turbocharged 3.0-liter engine and a synchronous electric motor. Fuel saving technology in the vehicle helps to reduce emissions by a great deal.
Like any car, the ActiveHybrid 5 is not immune to wear and tear over time, and you may find yourself needing to buy replacement parts at some point. But what parts should you shop for? You have some options when you’re browsing online - and have to decide between OEM and aftermarket. OEM should be your choice when it comes to replacing parts on your BMW. This is because OEM will guarantee a high-quality fit and long-lasting replacement compared to aftermarket parts. OEM parts are made by your BMW’s manufacturer and are held to higher standards than the aftermarket producers.
Nothing would be worse than shopping for a part and having it not work for your vehicle or cause additional damage to your car. It makes sense to pay a bit more for an OEM quality part upfront that will save you lots of time and money down the line!
