Here and everywhere else, OEM stands for "Original Equipment Manufacturer." So, OEM automotive components are the official, genuine parts produced directly by your vehicle's maker.

Many aftermarket parts manufacturers develop parts that are designed to fit on multiple models of vehicles to mass produce them. This often leads to ill-fitting parts that require some manipulation to get them to bolt on. 

If you're not familiar with aftermarket brands, the selection could be overwhelming, and there's some chance you may get a bad quality part. 

The saying "you get what you pay for" rings true here. Some aftermarket parts are inferior because of the use of lower-quality materials. Stick with aftermarket brands you're familiar with or are recommended by a mechanic you trust, even if these parts cost a bit more
