Anyone replace engine splash shield with reinforced version?

Engine splash shield had encountered one too many parking blocks-cracking the shield. Ordered a replacement (51758041699 underride protection). Replacement splash shield has reinforced adapter attached to front of shield with screws. Anyone had experience replacing theirs?

Attempts to install unsucessful, reinforcement in front thicker than stock. Closer inspection of new splash shield reveals different part number than originally ordered. This shield is 51758040109 (for 3-Series with Aero M-Tech bumper); will exchange for correct item.
