correction on front strut mount p/n

Regarding the front strut mounts (also called guide supports), the part number quoted above is for certain E39 and X3 models.

Per realoem, these days it appears BMW sells a kit which includes 5 different pieces, including the mount itself. Diagram below indicates part number for the kit you need depends on whether your E46 was built prior to November, 2003. But then again the "early" part number doesn't seem valid and or available.

If anyone knows if the "later" number can be used on <11/2003 build dates, do tell.

Note there is also apparently a core charge, so save your old parts.
