In January, 1886, Karl Benz attached a gasoline-powered engine to a steam-powered motorcycle, creating the world's first modern-day motorcycle. That same year engineer Wilhelm Maybach and Gottlieb Daimler adapted a gasoline engine to an 1873 Bollee steam-powered car, and later as the Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft (Daimler Motor Company, DMG) marketed the first Mercedes car in 1901. By 1926 the two rapidly growing companies merged to create the Mercedes Benz parts brand, which has continued the Maybach, Daimler and Benz tradition of automotive innovation ever since.
Today Mercedes Benz is one of the largest carmakers in the world, and thanks to Mercedes' outstanding reputation for performance, luxury and quality, owner loyalty is extremely high.

Many owners wonder if they should buy aftermarket or OEM Mercedes Benz parts online. Product quality can be difficult to discern from a small online photo, however in most cases you get what you pay for - but that doesn't mean discount Mercedes parts online are lesser quality then OEM Mercedes Benz parts.
