Are Idler Pulleys the same as S52 and S54

I'm planning on doing the belts and idler and tensioner pulleys since my car just rolled over 100k. Some of the online prices are outrageous for these damn things. In the pictures they look identical to the ones on my E36 M3, which are only like $40. Does anyone know if they are the same just a different part #? Just like the pre-'96 E36 front control arms are the same as the E30 but a different part number... Thanks

My mistake, I meant the tensioner pulley that is on the arm that goes for $140. Can just the pulley get swapped out with the regular center bolt style pulley instead of buying the whole arm for no reason. That's how the S52 in my E36 is anyway.

#6 is what I'm talking about for my E36. Can that get bolted on to #2 in the link you provided, and also #2 in the link below

I's rather have the parts ready to go before pulling it all apart only to find out the pulley is riveted onto the arm or something crazy like it's an Audi. I bet the dealer charges $1,500 to change both belts with all of the pulleys. I do miss the cheap maintenance on my E36 for sure, and in all these years BMW still can't make a belt pulley with a bulletproof bearing
