For me, "that car" was the Porsche 959...As a 14year old working on air cooled VWs, it was just an astonishing car.

(But yes, a special place for the 917 and GT40 too)

OE is Original Equipment: aka 'BMW Original Parts"; aka "What you buy at the BMW dealer with a BMW label on it"

OEM is Original Equipment Manufacturer... EITHER 'the company that made the OE part" or.... 'A part this is identical to the OE part, but is sold by the OEM under their own label,"

OEM is NOT WHAT YOU BUY AT THE DEALER.
