There's also a question as to what constitutes "original." Take the caps on the tire valves as one small example. Many dealerships have accessory departments with ten or even twenty different caps. Are we to mark down a car for "non original caps" when the original buyer made such an accessory choice? Some judges say "it's ok if the owner can show the accessory was fitted at the dealer when delivered." But what sense does that make, to allow a dealer-fitted cap while rejecting the same cap purchased from a catalog six months later.
