Sorry, this is a stupid question, but.............what does OEM stand for?

I know if I ask this on the other website I will get burned.

Just wondering. :drunken:

Smart man. You know that this is the "nicer" board. It must just be the 1st gen guys who are a**holes. Because all the 2nd Gen guys on that board are here, too.

Engine envy. The only cure is to spend $25,000. :)

Nicer has nothing to do with 1st vs 2nd, and everything to do with our Godfather's offer we can't refuse...

Technically, OEM (original equipment mfr) is whoever makes the part(s) for the final product, which means Nissan is not always the oem on specific part within the vehicle. Most auto mfrs source parts from all sorts of suppliers, including this one.

The term is thrown around for anything you could get at nissan dealer as a replacement, for the most part. Probably not right, but accepted....it is like calling an exhaust tube a pipe, an engine a motor, or a screw a bolt (which is only true if it has a nut).

The last post was 10.5 years ago. How the heck did you stumble on this one?
