The Answer - Not A Lot!
OE is short for Original Equipment which means the part is exactly the same as would be supplied by the main dealer but would be presented in different packaging and would have a different part number.
It is made from the factory where genuine parts are made, but it isn't supplied by the main dealer. However, you would have the genuine mark on it, i.e Peugeot mark or Vauxhall mark.
The OE part would be identical in every way to your original made by the same manufacturer using the same parts and materials as a genuine part but is often cheaper because it would not be in the main dealer box from the dealership.
So what's the difference between Genuine & OE? Nothing!
You are paying dealership prices for in essence, buying from them direct & having a branded genuine box.

Before buying after-market angel eye or day running headlights, make sure you have a bit of knowledge of how to fit them or how much they’ll cost to fit before purchasing.
You might see a lot of angel eyes with yellow halo rings – Those are literally plug and play headlights, just like a standard headlight. No wiring is necessary and we personally would say that you could be capable of fitting them yourself if you have a bit of knowledge on how to remove a headlight. There are however lots of guides and YouTube videos online that can assist and help you.
