spindle difference help!

i need a new spindle because when i went to change my shock, i broke the knuckle bolt and now i have a blown shock stuck in my spindle hub. i tried drilling the bolt out....it is quite impossible. so i need to buy another spindle but the only one i could find is this one:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/BMW-FRONT-BR...#ht_538wt_1111


it says its only made for cars manufactured before March 2002. and my car was manufactured in october 2002 (10/02) so i called them and they said it only says that because the actual bmw part number changes after this date and as for any serious changes that would make it not compatible with my car, they are not sure of.

so my question is, if i bought this part would it still work fine and fit my 2003 330 xi?? or is there some big difference between the spindle from a pre 3/02 and a 10/02?
