Especially in comparison to the shrill and colorful JDM tuning, is this OEM Tuningwhich translated from English "Original Equipment of Manufacturer"Tuning means a very discreet way of refining your car. There is a factory tuning department of almost every car manufacturer, which also offers OEM parts for retrofitting your car. Latest examples are the N-Line packages from Hyundai and GT-Line packages from Kia. The best known OEM tuning departments are the M GmbH from BMW, which offers the M-Sport package for all models and AMG, the Tuningschmiede of Mercedes, which offers an AMG exterior package for many models to upgrade them sporty and discreet.

OEM+-Tuning e.g. from ABT Sportsline

In addition to the OEM tuning, there is also a so-called OEM+-Tuning, which includes not only tuning parts from the original manufacturer of the vehicle, but also parts from other manufacturers, which were designed specifically for a vehicle. The best known examples are Brabus, Lorinser or Carlsson for Mercedes, abbot for VW and Audi as well AC Schnitzer for BMW and Irmscher for Opel, which fall into the category OEM +. These tuning companies specialize in the refinement of certain brands and offer tuning parts with manufacturer warranty for your vehicle, which shine through a high quality and discreet design.

In Japan, however, OEM tuning looks very different. Outrageous spoilers, raceparts and conversion kits that turn a Kei Car Roadster into a Nissan GTR or a Ferrari 599 Fiorano in miniature, are also used by factory tuners like Mugen (Honda), Nismo (Nissan) or TRD (Toyota) Favor of the mostly young and car-obsessed clientele, who wants to stand out from the shabby mass and drive something very special, although she remains loyal to the local manufacturers and does not want to buy expensive European imports. In Japan, European cars cost significantly more than in Germany, because there are high taxes on the import of foreign vehicles incurred.
