Has anybody else had problems trying to fit an ECP plastic timing chain guide on a 318 petrol N46 engine.  I tried for hours, but it wouldn't drop the last quarter inch to allow bolts to line up.  Eventually I took it out and compared it to the original BMW item. I noticed the small flap guides at the bottom are bigger, 1/4 inch lower and slightly different angle. It will never lower enough but ECP must sell hundreds of these but I cant find any mention of other people having this problem.  Anybody got any ideas?
