E90 Short Shift Knob doesn't fit???

My short shift knob from MorristownBMW came in today, but much to my disappointment, it doesn't fit on my car (2006 330i)!!!! The knob itself fits perfectly, but the new boot bracket is much bigger than the original and it won't fit no matter how hard I tried to squeeze it in.

Following are some pictures with the stock boot on top of the new one. You can clearly see the new boot is not of the same shape and is apparently quite a bit larger than the stock!

You can also see the part # (BMW Part #: 25110404454) on the box is also correct, so I don't know what the heck is wrong. Could it be that they put the wrong item in the box or something? Anybody else had a hard time fitting it in? Do you think they will exchange the part? This is my first mod on the car, and it is not starting well!! Please advise.
