Hello, I'm working on a 545i. I've got it all torn down and am having a hard time with my timing guides. They are in poor shape and need to be replaced. I've ordered a couple sets. An aftermarket one and a set from BMW. but the guides I received are different than the ones that came out of the car.

We tried running the part number on the guides themself and nothing shows in the BMW system either.

Has anyone ran into this issue before?

I was thinking that maybe they had the engine replaced in the past and it wasn't an exact match. Maybe an updated part. If it was that I would think it would show a part # supersetion.

Any thoughts would be appreciated
