Safety thanks to originals
The common consumer has no means to at first sight recognise good quality and bad quality parts, or see the difference between the seemingly more expensive original and the tempting cheap duplicate. But only by using original parts and accessories will you keep your car at the same qualitative and safety level as when it leaves the production line. Not only in terms of safety of the vehicle and the crew, but also in terms of functionality and reliability of individual components.
Using anything other than original parts might easily disturb the overall balance of the vehicle. ŠKODA Original Parts® and ŠKODA Original Accessories® undergo various innovations and changes applicable for each model during the course of production. They also undergo the same tests and inspections applicable for parts used in mass production.
ŠKODA can guarantee full compatibility not only with each model, but also with individual types. This means a trouble free assembly with no extra costs, and furthermore keeping the use value, quality and user friendliness of ŠKODA vehicles.
Comparison tests (http://www.skoda-auto.cz/cze/service/spareparts/tests/Pages/testlist.aspx), carried out by independent organisations, confirm the quality of ŠKODA products. Original brake pads, silencers and original air and oil filters have proven successful in comparison with other manufacturers' products.
Tests and compatibility
All products that are marked as original ŠKODA products are put through long test drives. Only once the products are evaluated can they be approved for sale as ŠKODA Original Accessories®. Full long-term test drives of 100,000 km are done for some major safety parts.
In particular, a test known as a building test is applied to 100% of the new ŠKODA Original Accessories® products. This test is used to find the ideal place for the product in the vehicle, to verify dimension criteria in cooperation with a team of specialists who are familiar with the vehicle from the beginning of its development, and who know the combination possibilities of the car equipment. A typical example might be finding the simplest possible housing of an electrical installation and its fixing.
