You can buy genuine BMW <or other makes> parts, or you can go to <pick your
store> and buy aftermarket parts. Brakes are an example of parts that can be
found on the aftermarket that perform (in most cases) as well as the factory
parts, and sometimes you will find aftermarket parts that work better.
Aftermarket is where the custom wheel covers come from. Lights and seat
covers are aftermarket parts. Belts and wiper blades. Get it?
