yes they make afternarket oem parts. That is what most collision centers use after a car had been crashed. its cheaper for them, but they still charge you alot.

it should have the OEM part number from honda. i believe you could look up the OEM part # from the Helm's manual. someone correct me if i'm wrong.

or you could go to the dealership and just get a quote on the parts that you need. they should be able to give you a print out with the OEM honda part numbers in it as well.

OEM parts have a part# stamped on somewhere. The Helm's manual is not big on part #'s, just how to remove and replace parts. :D

This is easy: if a part has a red Honda sticker on it with a part number, it's OEM. Anything else is less worthy. ;)
