We stand behind the parts we sell!

What Makes the Auto Parts Blauparts Sells Different?

We've been an Audi & VW cars specialist for over 30 years. Our years of hands-on experience has resulted in a vast knowledge base of the automotive parts industry. We don't just sell any parts. Our mission is to supply only the highest quality brand-name OFFICIAL O.E. parts. This means that wherever and whenever possible, we use the same manufacturers that supply Audi & VW. We've worked hard to establish direct partnerships with these manufacturers, cutting out the middle man and ensuring that the parts we receive are made by a legitimate OFFICIAL O.E. manufacturer. You can be confident that the parts we sell are of the highest quality and correct fit for your specific vehicle.

We go the extra mile. We don't just sell parts, we also install them in our repair service facility for our loyal customers. As fellow enthusiasts and Audi VW owners we also use the parts we sell on our own personal vehicles and on our company test vehicles. Most parts and every BLAU brand product has gone through extra and aggressive race track testing at our local Road America race track in Elkhart Lake, WI.

We feel confident that no other parts supplier in the country goes through the quality control disciplines that we do to ensure our customers get the best OFFICIAL O.E. parts at great low prices.

Warranty Policy Details

Note: This warranty policy applies to all purchases made from this new website (Introduced November 17th 2017). See note at the bottom of this page if you want to warranty a product you purchased before November 17th 2017.

How does it work?

Nearly every part we sell comes with our limited lifetime warranty from any defect in product material or workmanship for the period of time that you own the vehicle. See the list of 'What's Covered' and 'What's NOT Covered' below. The Limited Lifetime Warranty on engine components (i.e. timing belt parts) are covered for the manufacturers recommended service interval / mileage lifespan. For instance, timing belt parts on the Audi VW 1.8T engine have a recommend service interval of 75,000 miles. If any of the timing belt parts fail before their recommended service life of 75,000 miles - they're covered under our Limited Lifetime Warranty. See our full listing of what's covered below.
