bro, I can't help you with your part number but I can give you a very good advice that will save you tons of money.

When buying the LCM/LKM make sure you buy the complete package (Ie LCM + Faceplate). This is why. The Faceplate is roughly the same price (+/- $50) of a brand new LCM. If you accidently buy just the faceplate you are going to be stuck because BMW doesn't refund or exhange the LCM/faceplate. Therefore, you have to spend the extra $200-250 buying a new LCM.

NOTE:

-Faceplate = the just the plastic switch and knob of your LCM
-LCM = the module that contains all the primary circuit and chips to control your vehicel lighting system.
-LCM comes with Faceplate

For vehicles with
xenon light
and
rain sensor
Suitable for automatic light facility
ONLY
Ctrl, Switch unit for lights/fog lights

I am pretty sure this is the one I ordered. I know mine was for rain sensor cars, but it works just fine with my non-rain sensor car. I love the automatic headlight control too

Yes it will. It is the LCM from a 2004 E46. I am pretty sure this is the one I bought, maybe it was

61 31 6 936 828

For vehicles with
xenon light
and
rain sensor
suitable for automatic light facility
only
switch unit. Light/Foglamps
switch unit. Light/Foglamps



You will need to be programmed for correct mileage onto the LCM, programmed via the retrofit path for LED tails, and programmed for Xenon headlights if it didnt come stock with xenon.
