Medicine kit is not a USA part so doesn't appear on realoem for my car. Don't have a VIN for euro cars to plug in.

Crestwood with the parts might have the bag with the number on it. Would make it convenient for all the rest who can't easily access it or have dealers who claim they can't find the part number.

You almost don't deserve to own an e46 with the best color paint BMW ever sprayed on this model!
Give me a few mins

Wish I had found this thread before I ordered the box, now I have to wait on a bracket as it wasn't noted on the websited that one was needed.

I've done this on a few E46s with sport seats. Just get the right bolts and used a #10 thread chase and very simple.

I see that some are using self taping machine screws, sure this is fine since it's not coming out often. It probably is easier, but if you have a thread kit already just get the #10 bolts and do a quick thread in the predrilled holes.
