What are OEM Parts?

OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) parts for your MINI Cooper are just that, original parts and equipment manufactured for your MINI.
Our OEM parts are either supplied directly from the BMW/MINI or are made by an outside manufacturer that BMW/MINI has designated as an official manufacturer. These are genuine factory parts either used by BMW/MINI during production or parts from the Original Manufacturer who supplied the parts to BMW/MINI.  They are not aftermarket parts.

(Just in case you didn't know - Original Equipment Suppliers (OES) and Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) are essentially the same thing. They both refer to parts built by an outside company that initially made the parts for the BMW/MINI.   

Genuine parts, sometimes referred to as OE (Original Equipment ) parts, are parts that are acquired directly from a BMW/MINI dealer and is an component that was installed in your MINI when it first rolled off the assembly line.  All dealer-only parts are Genuine parts.

And Mini Mania, we use the four terms, OEM, OES, Genuine and OE interchangeably.  So, whenever you see the "Genuine MINI part" seal of approval, you can rest assured, you're getting the most accurate match possible to the part that came with your MINI.  Sometimes, even better.  For more details read our article, "What's My Part".)
