My Ride: '05 325i
Puzzled: rear bump stops wrong part

I bought all new Bilstein's for my 325i from shox.com and all new components (mounts, gasket, bump stops, etc.) from Pelican parts. I wanted to buy the shocks/struts from Pelican but they were $80 more than shox.com and wouldn't match the price after calling them, oh well.

I took out the shocks and noticed the bump stop is the wrong part (wrong number and different physically). I went to BMW of Newport and they gave me the right ones which matched what I had. I looked up again on Pelican parts to verify I didn't order the wrong ones, for a 325i they list part number:


Compared to my old one they differ in that the inner diameter is larger on the Pelican part, so it just slides down the shock. Also the pelican part has a concave top whereas the BMW part has a convex one.

I could not find the BMW part listed on Pelican's site; has anyone had this issue? Could it be because I have an M56 engine not an M54?
