Is it just me ... or is this BMW diagram upside down from reality in the E39?
And, are the numbers all wrong (for the E39)?

Seems to me, on 'my' E39, the following is different from this E85 diagram:
a) The side tube angles UPWARD (not downward as shown below)
b) The side tube is connected to the intake boot (not to the brake booster as shown below)
c) The connection to the intake manifold is on the bottom (not on the top)
d) The connection to the brake booster is on the top (not on the side arm)
