NOS GENUINE NISSAN & OEM AFTER MARKET EXPLAINED

This explanation is to clarify and have understanding as to the meaning of Factory Genuine Nissan parts versus OEM - Original equipment Manufacturer to Nissan parts often described as an OEM after market part. This is not to infer that ALL after market parts and their companies supplied Nissan.
Many of the items we sell are from the OEM companies that used to supply Nissan with parts for our roadsters. We will do our best, as time permits, to mark items "OEM" which in this case is the exact tooling and product that Nissan supplied. The following is but one example:

13270-25500 U20 valve cover seal. 1st PHOTO: Nissan bagged item on the left. OEM after market on the right. This item was discontinued by Nissan a few years back. The OEM company that made this part for Nissan, at the time of discontinuance, supplied to us the vacuum sealed counterpart in a long package thus preserving the shape of the seal as it corresponds to the valve cover for installation. WE requested it to be packaged this way. Nissan ordered this part to be folded over in their own packaging as was required for their distribution. The parts are identical. Just the packaging being the ONLY difference. We ask. Which do you prefer? We have them both ways. More examples to follow as time permits. If you have a question about a part we sell please take the time to ask.
