For example if you replaced your shocks w/ BMW OE shocks (mine were made by Boge) they would have a the roundel on them. If I bought the OEM shocks they wouldn't have the BMW roundel, but they would still be Boge shocks.
The only other main difference between OE and OEM is that some OEM parts are not made to the same quality standards as OE parts.
