What is a VIN?
VIN stands for Vehicle Identification Number. It’s a unique code that essentially functions as your vehicle’s “fingerprint.” Using a VIN decoder, we can find out what year, make, model, and trim level your vehicle is.
Why do I need a VIN?
Auto parts can be slightly different at each trim level. A VIN helps us find the perfect fit more quickly and efficiently.
How do I find my VIN?
The most common places to find your VIN are on your insurance paperwork, or on the vehicle itself. Standard paperwork from insurance providers will list the VIN in the details section, often right on the front page! You can also find the VIN at the base of the windshield. It will be on the driver’s side, and only visible from the exterior.
What does OEM mean?
OEM stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer, or the company that produced your vehicle. Nissan is an example of an OEM.
What is an OEM part?
The company that made your vehicle also produces the replacement parts for it. Since these components were manufactured by the company that assembled the vehicle, they offer a superior fit and better performance compared to aftermarket parts. OEM parts can be a little more cost-intensive, but this is due to their excellent fit, exceptional durability, and top-notch quality.
What is an aftermarket part?
There are lots of different auto parts makers out there! These companies make their own versions of parts for popular vehicles, which can look identical to OEM parts. Although they generally cost less, aftermarket parts may not come up to the same standards as OEM parts.
