Hmmm just took a quick peak under my car...the bump looks different.

My coupes looked like this (01 330ci)


I used a hockey puck as the cushion for the round bit.

For vehicles with production date up to 02/2001

My sedan looks like this (03 330i)


-For vehicles with production date from 02/2001

Looks like my hockey puck will not fit now.

So it looks like there are 3 different types of reinforcement that that BMW uses.

A reinforcement bar, and 2 different metal plates. Maybe the earlier plates are heavier duty that the later ones?
