Did you get lucky with the bumper guides? The auction clearly states new guides are required:

If your vehicle already already has the MTECH package, this bumper is a bolt on direct fit.
If your vehicle does not have the MTECH package from the factory, you will need to buy the MTECH rear bumper guide supports. Part #(s) for left and right are 51127906505 & 51127906506.

That shows up on realoem:

As a different part number.

Any ideas what the body shop did to make it work? Maybe an LCI versus pre-LCI difference?

Thanks
And.... I think I just answered my own question.

If E90 is PreLCI and E90N is LCI then the LCI does come with the new bumper guides for both the normal bumper and M aerodynamic bumper.
