Default Honda. What's the Difference?

On Ebay there is a 2 door OE Wing Spoiler for a Honda Civic 01-05 and then there is another one that is a Honda Coupe 2 door Wing spoiler for a Honda Civic 01-05. My car is a coupe, but before I saw the one for the coupe I saw the OE one (Both are from the same seller) and bought it. Today I saw the one for the coupe and I was wondering if the Honda Civic Two Door OE (what's OE) Spoiler would fit on it. Two questions here.

1. What does OE mean?

2. Would an OE Spoiler fit on a coupe?

THANK YOU! 10 points best answer =)

well OE means "Original Equipment", in other words its just a stock spoiler, if they're different spoilers the other one that doesn't say OE is probably an aftermarket spoiler, if they're both the same spoiler the reason the seller didn't say OE on the other one since its the same seller is probably because the OE is from Honda but the other one is an aftermarket company that made a stock OE spoiler (knock off), both the same spoiler just the OE is from Honda and the other isn't but can't tell you without looking at them

also a "coupe" is 2 door, "sedan" is 4 door so since that said 2 door OE then yes it woudl fit a coupe

i agree with ChevyPride0310;

this is SO simple......

Q#1 OE (short for OEM) Original Equipment (Manufacturer) means its made by Honda.

Q#2 Yes a factory (OEM) Spoiler/Wing would fit the Coupe (2 door) as long as its stated to fit that year and body style (2 or 4 door).

I'll Just Add, some spoilers are made to factory specs but are not OEM honda, they are OE replacements (knock off's) i believe a easy way to tell real honda equiptment from fakes, is underneath the spoiler the word "civic" indented in the center where the led brake light is.

see: (click enlarge on ebay, its the 4th picture to the right)
