The BMW i3 is a subcompact luxury vehicle sold as a 5-door hatchback and electric powertrain. The car is the first mass-produced zero emissions vehicle by the brand. It won a few “car of the year” awards, including the 2014 World Green Car of the Year. The BMW i3s is the sports version of the vehicle that was announced in 2018. The vehicle features a lowered sport suspension, faster acceleration, and SPORT drive mode among other features.
Like any car, your BMW i3s is bound to need repairs or maintenance over time as you own it. OEM parts should be used when this is the case. OEM parts might be pricier upfront, but the benefits of the vehicle of these parts outweigh the cost difference between them and aftermarket varieties. Finding the right part for your BMW is one of the main benefits to using OEM parts. This is because you can easily sort and find parts for your specific model by plugging in your VIN or your make and model. This can eliminate a lot of time you spend sorting through aftermarket parts. Also, the quality of OEM parts is far higher than aftermarket varieties. This means you won’t have to replace them as frequently, saving you money in the long run.
