Default E39 engine mounts

Has anyone any photos of the Marlin supplied e39/M52 engine mounting brackets, stand-alone and or correctly fitted?
I have been looking at mine and they look sufficiently “wrong” to ask the question before starting modifications, just case they have supplied the wrong ones.
Only looked at passenger side one in detail so far. Once original mount is off it doesn’t look quite as bad as I first thought as there are additional threaded holes in the engine that were obscured by the original. But will still need to slot holes by 3-4 mm and grind a lug of the engine to get it to fit. Or slot the holes slightly more and but the mount up against the lug. I have no problems opening up the holes, but slotting a hole for an M8 bolt by 5mm is enough to make me query it.
Have the question in at Marlin but no answer yet.
