E92 335xi Underside Picture

Hey guys, I've got a favor to ask: Would someone mind taking a picture of the underside of their car, specifically the bracket that bolts the exhaust up to the transfer case?

My 2008 335xi coupe had some work done to it last year, and the shop that did it neglected to reinstall the hardware that anchors the exhaust system to the transfer case, causing rattles and other bad noises.

I recently ordered what I thought were the parts to replace this hardware, but unfortunately the parts designated in the diagrams do not fit, and the guys at Tischer and I are having a difficult time pinpointing exactly what I need.

If someone could do this for me I would be eternally grateful!

EDIT: I have attached pictures of the parts I purchased but did not fit properly. They are the bottom two parts in the picture. I have also attached a picture of an e60 that has a different shaped bracket that (if I remember correctly) was a similar bracket to what the car should have.

Its a slow day at work, I tried to get a good shot from under the car but it was worthless since its lowered and there is no ground clearance to get a good shot. The ones pictured on RealOEM doesn't jive to whats on the car.

My looks just like this, found this pic online. Like i said, its a slow day.

I have taken my exhaust and transfer case off many times. The piece he's pointing to IS the drain plug. The part that bolts to the exhaust is to the left of his pic. It holds the transfer case via 2 bolts, I believe they're E10. Kinda looks like the first part in his "parts" pic.

Thanks for the help so far!

I contacted Tischer and they were unable to find the proper part, and suggested bringing the car to the stealership to start a PUMA case with BMW...this really isn't something I am interested in doing/paying for.

Would anyone be willing to closely examine the part on their car to see if it has a part number stamped into it?

Also, does anyone know of anybody parting out a 335xi that would have the bracket?
