    Damage repair: can one ask for OE parts to be used?

    My friend's Mazda3 got hit from behind with bumper damage. Geico used *certified bumper* but it did not fit very well at the seams. He refused to take it. Geico will call him again. As a victim in this case, can he ask for OE bumper to be used? What is the rule on this? Thanks in advance.

    Traded my CX9 in for '16 Mazda6 (see signature below) today. Got a good price, good trade-in value, and $500 loyalty discount. It's time to down size my vehicle, now that kids are leaving the house. Have fun with your '9., guys. I will stick around Mazda3 and Mazda6 forums. ;)
