OEM Parts means "Original Equipment Manufacturer"
Mini Mania carries a wide range of OEM Factory genuine parts including repair and maintenance parts for:
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.
What is the Difference Between OEM and Aftermarket?OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) parts for your MINI Cooper are just that, original parts and equipment manufactured for your MINI.
Aftermarket parts and accessories are made by companies that may have been an original manufacturer that supplies BMW with their parts, the may have purchase the rights to make a product, or they may have reverse engineered a product and thus are built to fit and perform as well as the original factory part but were never actually supplied to the manufacturer.
While these parts are typically made to the exact original equipment specifications with the same type of machines and with the same type materials, slight visual differences are often evident. Some aftermarket companies also continue to engineer a product and thus can often make a product that is actually better or longer lasting than the originals. And often times they are much cheaper. Aftermarket parts are usually sold at up to 70% what you would find at your local dealer.
Whenever possible we try to offer both genuine OEM parts and aftermarket parts.
