Mein Auto: 2007 BMW 650i

Thank you very much for the great DIY! I changed out my brakes this weekend, well actually Late sunday night. I had gotten everything removed and was installing then noticed something odd about the OEM replacement brakes. The outer brake bad did not have the clips (2 fingers) on it like the pads I removed. The parts numbers were a match for what I removed. Is this an update that BMW has made to the OEM pads or are my pads suffering from a manufacturing glitch? I wet ahead and installed the pads and the car brakes fine and I have not noticed anything odd.

Thank you and have a great day.
