Default M Coupe roof trims and clips

It appears the original factory fitted clip has either been replaced with a new part number and style or its another mistake by BMW (part not fit for purpose)

White clip is new part number now supplied by BMW, black is original . White clip appears to need to fit onto a T shaped post where black is stuck to body with double sided tape

Front and rear clips have been stuck down with additional glue at the factory,

The new clip part number 51138412636 doesn't appear to be fit for purpose but as it has a similar upper profile it may be possible to reduce the height of it and then stick it to the body but the contact area would be roughly half of the original clips
