Body Repair Parts

If you have repairs done to your car how do you know if they used Genuine MB parts,used or aftermarket body parts?

Insurance company paid for new MB parts. Is there a way to tell?

What is the nature of the repair done? It really depends...but genuine M-B parts are usually stampled with the logo...

...For body parts/panels, the part # are usually hidden on the back, so they are not as easily seen...is there some visual problem with the new parts that make you doubt they are genuine/new? Usually, for such bodywork, shopping for a trustworthy shop beforehand elimiates this kind of doubt after the work is completed...

If a customer would question us, I would be glad to show them the invoice for their parts.
