Question: How do I know the springs All European offers have good fitment when there seems to be so much confusion surrounding the right fit from other suppliers?
Answer: We take providing the correct springs very seriously. We spend a significant amount of resources to have the factory information available. The best way to make sure you are ordering the correct part is to provide the VIN (excludes modified vehicles).
Question: What level of quality are the springs?
Answer: We carry almost exclusively 2 Manufacturers of springs. Kilen from Sweden and Suplex of Germany. Kilen is the sister company of the more popular Lesjofer and made in the same plant to the same quality standards for over 100 years. The Kilen springs often offer an improved design to the tapered wire design used for many BMW models and will not fail the same way the originals did. Suplex is TUV approved which is the equivalent to the DOT of Germany. This is a Certificate that few spring manufacturers have obtained. We could not find a spring manufacturer with higher standards.
Question: What level of quality can I expect from All European?
Answer: Our goal here at All European is to provide the best quality product at the best price. We do what we can to stay away from Chinese parts, and in this world that is tough but we always try to buy directly from the original manufacturers first. We may also have an economy brand too but we are still very selective and although they may cost a little more than their Chinese counterparts we are proud of all of our brands. If you're not sure which brand to choose just ask.
Question: Which fluid can I use?
Answer: We recommend whatever your manufacturer recommends. To look this up, check out the Amsoil website for very helpful cross referencing data, including capacity and specs. Always verify before adding any fluid. The wrong fluid can often cause major damage and cost to repair.
Question: What is All European’s Core policy?
Answer: A core charge is an extra charge beyond the cost of the part that acts like a deposit to encourage you to return the old one. We do require that your old unit (core) be in rebuildable condition and complete as we sold it to you. Anything less than complete and rebuildable may be rejected as a core. Often if a core is not rebuildable, it is due to things like physical damage from an accident or during removal. Cores may be rejected if they are obviously not rebuildable. Others may need to be sent to the respective rebuilder to decide if it can be rebuilt. Your rebuildable core must be returned within 30 days to be credited. Please call before purchasing if you are not sure of the condition of your core to avoid the loss of a deposit.
Question: What is the difference between Genuine, OEM, and Aftermarket?
Answer: Here is a great explanation from Wikipedia when searching "OEM": "An Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) is a company that produces parts and equipment that may be marketed by another manufacturer. For example, if Acme Manufacturing Co. makes power cords that are used on IBM computers, Acme is an OEM. The term is also used in several other ways, which causes ambiguity. It sometimes means the maker of a system that includes other companies' subsystems, an end-product producer, an automotive part that is manufactured by the same company that produced the original part used in the automobile's assembly, or a value-added reseller." "When referring to auto parts, OEM refers to the manufacturer of the original equipment, that is, the parts assembled and installed during the construction of a new vehicle. In contrast, aftermarket parts are those made by companies other than the OEM, which might be installed as replacements after the car comes out of the factory. For example, if Ford used Autolite spark plugs, Exide batteries, Bosch fuel injectors, and Ford's own engine blocks and heads when building a car, then car restorers and collectors consider those to be the OEM parts. Other-brand parts would be considered aftermarket, such as Champion spark plugs, DieHard batteries, Kinsler fuel injectors, and BMP engine blocks and heads. Many auto parts manufacturers sell parts through multiple channels, for example to car makers for installation during new-vehicle construction, to car makers for resale as automaker-branded replacement parts, and through general merchandising supply chains. Any given brand of part can be OE on some vehicle models and aftermarket on others."
