About Counterfeit VW Parts

The sale of Fake VW Parts and Volkswagen copyright material on internet auction sites is widespread.

These items include many copies of VW Car Parts and re-engineered or copied Volkswagen products (Counterfeit Volkswagen Car Spares, Fake Volkswagen Accessories etc).

Copies of Volkswagen software such as Volkswagen Workshop manuals, Volkswagen Satellite Navigation system maps and updates, Volkswagen Engine diagnostics and Volkswagen re-mapping software etc is currently available. Much of this material also uses Volkswagen copyright images (such as the "Volkswagen Logo") and any sales from an un-authorised party can obviously directly affect the Volkswagen supply and maintenance chain (including Volkswagen Dealerships), whilst possibly financing criminal or terrorist activity.

Additionally; some copied disks labeled as "Volkswagen" contains viruses, malware and - or computer hijacking software, whilst the failure of some bootleg mechanical components (such as brake components) can be potentially life threatening.

Many Counterfeit Volkswagen Car Parts are manufactured in the Far East (Particularly India, Taiwan and China). China is the main source of many Fake Volkswagen Car Parts such as Fake Volkswagen Alloy Wheels, Fake Volkswagen Body Kits, Fake Volkswagen Spoilers etc.

In most cases these goods are sub-standard. Eg; Fake Volkswagen Car Parts may not fit correctly, the foam within Fake Volkswagen Spoilers and Fake Volkswagen Body Kits can expand in hot weather - thus causing blistering and cracking - ruining the look of the car.

Surely; knowingly fitting Counterfeit VW Spares to a genuine Volkswagen car borders on stupidity. But knowingly supplying fakes is a crime.

However; using fake VW parts can be both a false economy and fatal. Components such as Fake VW Alloy Wheels can be prone to cracking and vital components such as Counterfeit VW Brake Calipers, Counterfeit VW Brake Pads are often made from sub standard components which simply fail under pressure.

For some time now, UK Anti Piracy has monitored and taken action on behalf of Multiple interested parties. We continue to develop and expand this relationship and we can work with Volkswagen, UK Trading Standards and online services to significantly reduce - hopefully eradicate the supply of Counterfeit Volkswagen products, Fake VW Parts and pirated Volkswagen software.

Fake VW Brake Pads

Counterfeit Brake Pads

Volkswagen remain one the most responsible and vigilant car manufacturers. In 2010, Working with Northern Ireland Trading Standards; VW identified and reported Fake VW, Audi, Seat and Skoda Brake Pads being shipped into the UK. The Counterfeit Brake Pads were seized, tested (found to be dangerous) and destroyed.

In this case, the Brake Pad material was attached to the Brake Pad backing (metal) with glue (rather than resin - studs). It beggars belief that anyone could be so stupid and callous as to manufacture or supply dangerous items such as this. Had it not been for Volkswagens vigilence; fatalities may well have occured.
