The whole OE/OEM/aftermarket parts issue is discussed in detail in this month's issue of The Star. Bottom line though; OE is Original Equipment, and is expected to be the EXACT SAME PART as you'd get at a dealer. OEM means Original Equipment Manufacturer, and means only that the manufacturer has supplied parts to Mercedes.
Why do you think that it means what you think it does?...
And BrianW, YMMV: Your Mileage May Vary. It means you may not get the same results...
