    Post Bmw x braces?

    After looking around online for parts for my vert I came across something that said all verts have x braces standard?
    So went Nd had a look under mine and was expecting to see something like this

    But I didn't it looks like this .


    Had another look online and said it was an earlier x brace with the same part numbers apparently as the other ? .
    I'm just wondering if anyone knows if this is actually an x brace and why it's different ?
    Thanks
