CORRECT. My friend is a Insurance adjuster for a major insurance company and it's he tells me it's perfectly legal for a insurance company to use "aftermarket" parts in repairs. It's usually written in the policy but 99.9% will never read it until it is too late.

The moment you drive that car off that dealer lot, it is considered used and subject to the insurance company's repair policy. The only time you will get OEM parts if IF there was no availability of a aftermarket part.
