Thanks @bing, this was really helpful, my ocd with my dipped bonnet was killing me. First pic the bonnet had slightly dipped on the drivers side. Got the orginal parts from ebay direct from BMW, £7.80 each

I know it's only millimeters, but it's more obvious when I'm driving!!

Bought 4 pieces as I only had one attached to bonnet

Added 2 on drivers side, I moved the old rubber stopper to the front near the catch.

Question: What's worse than being a perfectionist?
Answer: Nothing!!
I was looking a bit more closely at the photographs provided by Bing, and at an enlarged portion of the RealOEM page that shows that pesky 51237116856. I'd like to propose the the orientation of the bump stop should be turned 180° from the installed orientation shown in Bing's photographs. Seems like it fits more snugly and intersects more correctly with the fender channel. I couldn't determine how AMIN's bump stops were installed. Thanks for tolerating my OCD.
