Yeah, after looking at the pics it looks new. However, I betcha they used the old Polyglass design, with Polyglass cone (even says so in the technical papers on their website), changed the basket to plastic with integrated flange adapter, replaced neo magnet with a common ceramic one, and added the phase plug. Even power rating (40W RMS / 80W max) is the same as the old Polyglass 100 VRS. There's no reason they had to reinvent the wheel to make something PnP for the BMW.
