3. RealOEM is not comprehensive.

essentially yes. the 712 rack was only on the zhp but it also came on other 330s. the MAJORITY of 330s did not come with the 712 rack which makes the 712 rack the "zhp rack" but not absolutely exclusive to the zhp. we don't really know what pattern bmw followed in choosing which cars other than the zhp got the 712 rack, but some definitely did.

and also yes, realoem is not an end all resource. it is useful but does not tell us all the little secrets that happened when assembling each specific car.
