20th December 2017 a judgement of the European Court of Justice finally affirmed production and trade of Compatible Replacement wheels is legal, in conformity with the repair clause.
According to this judgement the repair clause is applicable to replacement component that is visually identical to the original parts, used to restore the original appearance. WSP Italy wheels are not only identical to O.E.M. ones , they are in addition UNECE R124 approved, sold with reference to the O.E.M. Part number, and most of them produced in Flow Forming, with quality standards that can be compared with OEM ones. In the light of new regulation the seller of a replacement component is under a duty of care to inform downstream users that the replacement part is exclusively used for repair purposes and is not a O.E.M. part.
