Your Auto-Glass Options: OE vs OEM vs Aftermarket

The windshield is a very important component of your vehicle and there are subtle differences between OE, OEM and Aftermarket auto-glass products that all car owners need to understand before replacing their windshield.

If you do require an auto-glass repair service, such as a windshield replacement, here are the key differences between OE, OEM & Aftermarket products that you should keep in mind:

Type of Auto-Glass Description
OE (Original Equipment)

OE is auto-glass from the original supplier - the same that was used in the factory assembly of your vehicle.

  • It will have the company’s brand stamped directly onto the glass.
  • It is considered to be the highest quality auto-glass
  • It is also the most expensive
OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer)

OEM refers to auto-glass that is manufactured to identical specifications as OE (in terms of size, shape, thickness e.t.c.) but is NOT from the original supplier.

  • It is more cost-effective than OE auto-glass
  • It doesn’t have the brand stamp
  • Otherwise identical to OE
Aftermarket Auto-Glass

Aftermarket auto glass is manufactured by companies who are not affiliated with specific automakers.

  • The size & shape will be the same as the original glass
  • The thickness, durability, color & tint may vary.
  • The most cost-effective option for any auto-glass repairs you may need
