OEMs for various parts from Flow's Thread:

First, lets clarify the difference between OE and OEM.
OE : Original Equipment. What the M3 came with when it left the factory.
OEM : Original Equipment Manufacturer. A manufacturer that sells parts to BMW but not necessarely the one you are buying. For instance, Bosch is an OE supplier for ignition coils, but an OEM for brake pads (not sure they actually make brake pads). Textar on the other hand is OE for brake pads, and OEM for ignition coils (pretty sure they do not manufacture ignition coils).

I started to assemble some information for maintenance items. Not sure this is going to go anywhere, but here it is. If this gets any sort of traction, I'll keep updating it as I find information.
If there is any mistake you see, or any additional information, please tell me so I can update accordingly.
