Default front subframe bump stops

I decided to replace the oil pan gasket and in the process of course I had to remove the subframe. oil pan gasket is done and am re-installing the subframe along w new wishbone control arms and ball joints. I saw that the subframe bump stops were torn and needed replaced ( there were 2 ). the diagram on realoem.com shows only one but there were 2 on mine. I ordered 2 not thinking and of course the one doesn't fit both sides. one side needs to be a mirror image of the other, reverse fit. I cannot find the part number for the other side bump stop. if you look up under RealOEM.com under 318ti engine then front suspension it would be part number 19 bump stop. does anyone have any info on said parts or where I could get the one I need? any help would greatly be appreciated. thanks

If you look at the page on real oem it tells you how many of these were installed on each car. For this part it is only 1. And that's because of the way the engine torques when driven hard. Engines not only twist side to side but under heavy load can rotate slightly in the engine bay. And that side is the only one that could hit.
