The threads do look the same, and I don’t know if it would work without the adapter, but the silver sensor is cone shaped at the bottom like an AN fitting and may protrude into the fuel line. The adapter is flat at the bottom and raises the sensor up about 1/2”.

Here’s the link to RealOEM...

I must have looked right at that adapter and ignored it... Thanks.

I will source the adapter as I already have the sensor and o-ring. Easier than returning stuff across the border...

Another question: How do you tell which model fuel rail is in the car? 16122283485 was ended and needs the adapter. 16122284752 is current. RealOEM lists it as starting in 2013... Seems odd that it would be in the last model year only. I assume my 2011 has the older ended model as it also has the brass sensor.

Cheers,

confused

So I've read the last few pages here about the different part numbers as I am very confused as to which is the right sensor. I have the brass sensor on my car. I did the usual realOEM part check and saw two parts, which are different. One requires an adapter. I checked with ECS for pictures of the parts. I contacted ECS specifically regarding which sensor was correct for my 09 E92, stating that there were two very different parts listed on realOEM. I was informed, after their review, that the silver sensor was the correct part and they proceeded to ship me that part. There was no mention of needing an adapter for it and additional O-Ring.
So can someone please explain the two parts, the brass fitting on ECS is not listed for the e9x m3 or I would have just purchased that and been done with it.
Do I return the silver sensor and buy the brass sensor not listed for e9x m3?
Do I try and order the adapter and O-ring for this silver sensor?

I believe the difference is related to the fuel rails which were installed in some cars and later swapped to a different rail. My gut says to return the silver fitting and go with the brass fitting despite ECS having the wrong description, or is there reason to buy the adapter, o-ring and try the new silver sensor?
Does the brass fitting come with the new o-ring?

help please....

Cheers

Either sensor will work. I donít know why the silver sensor requires the adapter and o ring but it definitely works (and I have a build date prior to the new fuel rail). The brass sensor comes with the o ring, whereas the silver sensor does not.

I also used the silver sensor with the required o-ring in my 2011 with had a brass sensor. I did not use the magical adapter and no problems to report.
