OEM Convertible top

I have a soft top that purchased off ebay with a zippered in rear window and guy stated it was a OEM top but now that I'm ready to install it I noticed it does not have any rear window tension straps or stiffener bar across top of window. Were these two things upgrades that BMW did or did I end up with some type of knock off? Everything else seems to be the same.

Also want to know if this top will still work without having window tension straps?

Any help or input would be greatly appreciated,
