Fair enough. As for your original question, the only thing I would be concerned about is that the strut also changed at the same date for the xi (per RealOEM). I doubt that it would be a problem, but it would probably be best to source the correct updated part for your car. You certainly don't want to get the new-to-you part only to have it not fit!
Hopefully someone with actual experience as opposed to realOEM alone can chime in to help though.
