This is why we will not fit customer supplied parts.

The consequences, if a accident happened through defective/sub standard parts are not worth the risk.

Customer supplied parts: consumers warned as fake parts campaign gathers pace
Trade body warns consumers against the practice as part of a campaign to raise awareness of counterfeit parts

The Independent Garage Association (IGA) is this week warning motorists about the dangers supplying their own car parts to a garage for fitment.

The trade body suggests that more and more customers are asking garages to fit parts they have supplied themselves, presenting problems for both the garage and the consumer.

Addressing vehicles owners, Stuart James, IGA director, said: “Although we all like to save money, supplying your own parts to service or repair your car is a false economy.

“False economy”
“Let your garage deal with the job from start to finish.

“You and your car are protected, the risk of delay or inconvenience is reduced and most importantly, the safety of you, your passengers and other road users is not put at risk.”

Most garages wisely refuse to fit parts supplied by consumers, as the part being fake is just one of a number of issues which present problems for both parties.

The IGA says consumer supplied parts may not be the correct fitment for the car, some internet sourced parts can be of low quality and there are potentially complex warranty issues if the part fails – especially where provenance is difficult to establish.

The warning comes in support of a new campaign from Intellectual Property Office (IPO) which hopes to raise awareness about the risks of counterfeit car parts.

The campaign explains the full scale of the problem across the motor industry and offers advice to consumers on how to identify fake vehicle parts, tips for buying parts online and how to report counterfeit goods.

If they want their own parts fitted, I suggest they go to a back street bodger,,,,

Wow Audi A4 Quattro 2014 -2litre FSI petrol with full service history 87000 miles and guess what recovered in non start.Carried out compression test nothing across all cylinders,removed relevant parts to find timing chain stretched and jumped of the camshaft sprockets. So much for the supposed lifetime of engine fit.
The customer has a bill in excess of £3000 to rectify his vehicle.

The day after another recovery arrived, a Audi TT 2012 with the same engine 2 litre FSI petrol engine with the exact same issue only 49000 miles with FSH and after diagnostics were carried out this vehicle was showing no compression.Here we go again.
