I'm pretty sure it is an S54, as it has DSC. I was under the impression that the S50 cars didn't have this.

Definately an S54, DSC, Grey dials, the salesperson must be new or ignorant. It's an old car for a Main Dealership.

I bought some of the plastic covers recently for my E90, they were very loose and I didn't fit them as they would have come off almost instantly.

This type didn't fit the OEM locking bolt as it doesn't have a hex head.
