ECS Teflon Shifter Bushings...

Hey guys, I contacted ECS customer support but they were unable to confirm that...

the bushings in this this kit: http://www.ecstuning.com/BMW-E46-325...flon/ES259532/

replace this/these: http://www.ecstuning.com/BMW-E46-325...shing/ES47190/

So my questions...

1) Am I correct in assuming that those teflons bushings replace those shifter bushings (25117519670)?

2) I am aware that the car calls for 2 bushings, does that teflon kit replace both or do those 2 pieces only replace one bushing?

Sorry if this is obvious, I am new to this car and BMW! Thanks!

Ok, so the attached chart seems to indicate I was right about question 1 (that the teflon kit replaces 25117519670), but it seems to me you would need 2 sets (one for each side, but regarding the 2 guide pins... there are 2 different part numbers for the guide pins, so I assumed they were different from one another... So how would this kit work for both?). Unless someone knows for sure I guess I will just replace the bushings with OEM parts. Thanks!

The kit you're looking at in the original post was incorrectly set to your car, sorry about that. HERE is a link to the correct kit for the E46 325xi. This kit is going to contain 4 teflon bushings (2 required for each standard rubber bushing) and the two guide pins for the E46 325xi.
