540i emissions values

hi all, my trusty e39 540 failed its mot today due to emissions, upon getting home and after the garage was shut i noticed the test result form had my car down as e60/e61 model and a 2 litre
the results were
fast idle
CO..0.627 (max limit 0.200) a fail
HC..42 (max limit 200)..pass
lambda..1.028 (max limit 1.030) pass
2nd fast idle
natural idle
now, i did some research this eve and from what i can gather is that no way on this planet will my engine achieve 0.200 in the CO test and they have set the max limits for the wrong model.
anyone on here know what my figures should be so when i speak the the garage tomorrow i'm armed with some knowledge.
cheers (btw im in the UK)
