Default Any Danes able to answer this?.

A couple of days ago someone wanted new brakes fitted to their Danish registered Audi. They insisted that I used genuine Audi dealer supplied parts as aftermarket products were not legal in Denmark.
Is this correct?. If so it opens a can of worms for someone visiting Denmark with perfectly safe but non original parts fitted to their car.
Do other countries have strict laws about replacement parts?.
I know the SMMT lobbied to have only authorised dealers servicing their cars and supplying parts. I understood nothing came of it in the UK at least, were they more successful elsewhere?.

Roger.

Well, I'm Norwegian, not Danish, but a quick google search led me to the Danish Transport and Construction Agency. In 2012 they passed a new law making it illegal to modify your car (for example tuning), as long as it doesn't conform to safety regulations. Driving and owning an illegally modified car had been illegal for a long time, but this latest change made the act of modifying it an offence as well. Again, as long as the car doesn't conform to safety regulations.

The page does however specifically state that " (...) it will still be legal to (...) use unoriginal spare parts." (Unoriginal here meaning aftermarket).

That's all I can dig up. I guess these people might have misunderstood that new regulation?

Hi!
There is no law against using unoriginal / oem / aftermarket parts in Denmark.

Selling aftermarket part is a big business here

As they are in the EU, EU block exemption and type approval directives apply like UK etc therefore aftermarket parts to OEM spec are fine.

Well, you might be able to pass them off as environmentally friendly and compostable. "Storeman's Green brakes: When stopping your car is not as important to you as stopping climate change."

Thank you all who replied. I dare say it was the customer misinterpreting Danish law.

Incidentally a customer needed a new battery for her 2011 VW Golf GTI yesterday. Best price replacement?, from the local main dealer!.

Always worth shopping around if your considering spending more than a few quid.
