What is the difference between an OEM and a Genuine part? Aren't those two the same? | PartBull
There is a difference between Genuine and OEM / OE Supplier brands. A Genuine part is a part in the auto manufacturer's original box with their logo on the box (Ex: BMW or Mercedes) . OEM / OE Supplier is a brand licensed by the vehicle manufacturer and the part will not come with the vehicle manufacturer's logo on it. OEM / OE Suppliers are often the same parts you'd get at the dealership, just in a different box. We do not accept returns because of these discrepancies and any part returned for this reason will be treated as a buyer remorse issue and thus subject to a 20% restocking fee.
