Cold Weather Dip Stick Tube XI

Hey guys, I ordered a cold weather updated dipstick tube, and it looks like it doesn't fit on the XI. Is there an XI specific version? Here is the photo. I tried to put it in but the mounting points were all off.

New Part: 11437565437

I dont know. Is your old one double walled? If not then maybe the new dipstick doent apply to the XI crowd. Thats the only difference between the others from what I understand. But Please post back what you find out as I have yet to do the CCV but I am sure at some point I will have to tackle this. So if I do it im going to do it all the way and this will be vital information. Good luck!

Well then there has to be an updated one out there for the XI. Send a message to Jason or Evan @ Tischer BMW (GetBMWParts.com) and they will be able to give you some correct guidance I am sure.

I got curious and did some searching for you.

Here is what I found:

E46 XI Updated (Cold Weather) dipstick tube
Part Number -- 11437565438
Link to Turner Motorsports confirming that is the correct part number and the tubes are indeed different between XI and non XI
