Steering rack boots

The boots on my steering racK are broken, I am at 136k miles. I have done a search on here for this question but can't see to find an answer. I know there are some parts that are different between the regular e46 and our XI models, but is this true of these steering rack boots? It looks like what I see listed puts the XI boots are at least twice the cost? What could be so different/special about them?

Thanks in advance fo your help!

No clue what's special, but they are Xi specific likely for something to do with their dimensions to fit around the front axles.
