That would mean that almost every option on our cars isn't OE. Bare essential BMWs have nothing fun in them. In that case, the few OE things on our cars are the seats, body panels, engine, etc.
Can be is quite different from is. If it wasn't on the car, it's not OE--it's an option/accessory. In the case of the E46, correct me if I am wrong, but this decal was never even an option. It didn't even exist.
