The economical alternative:
Genuine Remanufactured Parts.
Mercedes-Benz Genuine Remanufactured Parts are the attractive alternative to
new parts: in exchange for the defective old part, you can save up to 50 % on the
price of a new part by buying a Mercedes-Benz Genuine Remanufactured Part.
Without having to lower your standards. On the contrary: the same guarantee
applies to our genuine remanufactured parts as to Mercedes-Benz GenuineParts.
And at the same time, reconditioning old parts isn’t just good value: it’s also good
for the environment.
The benefits at a glance.
• Effective, environmentally compatible
and economical combustion
• Due to the perfect adjustment to each
individual engine type the combustion
of fuel with Mercedes-Benz genuine
spark plugs is reduced without
the danger of misfiring or pre-ignition
which can cause engine damages
The reconditioning of Mercedes-Benz Genuine
Remanufactured Parts is carried out according to strict
requirements: all wear parts are replaced with new parts.
Each of our genuine remanufactured parts then undergoes
a final examination with the same series standards as for
new parts.
Whether you drive a brand-new Mercedes-Benz or an older
one: with Mercedes-Benz Genuine Remanufactured Parts,
we have the right offer for your vehicle.
With Mercedes-Benz Genuine Remanufactured Parts, you
save up to 50 % compared to the cost of a new part with
the return of the defective old part. Thanks to this saving,
you can drive cost-effectively for longer.
The same applies to our genuine remanufactured parts as to
our new parts – they are so good that we can offer a two-year
guarantee to private customers without batting an eyelid.
This includes functional security, lifespan and the performance
of the replacement parts.
Since replacement parts don’t need to be made from scratch,
using them requires far less energy than producing new parts
does. This means precious raw materials can be saved and
emissions reduced.
