Real OEM shows the same part number for the crankshaft/bearing assembly in European and US engines as well. (112177942263)
But interestingly the non-US X5 diesels had a change to their connecting rod BOLT part numbers at some point.

02 Connecting rod bolt L=47MM 12 11241744319 ENDED
02 Connecting rod bolt M9X47MM 12 11247589671 $5.83

PS to ARD: But is is so much more fun, not to mentions easier, to diagnose the cause of an engine failure based anecdotal 'evidence' without having to get your hands dirty actually inspecting the oily parts
