M030 or not - tech heads needed

I have a friendly debate going, and need techy people to help answer the final "Deal or No Deal"
I have a 2004 2.7 base. I thought I was getting lightly used M030 bars, and it turns out the part number for the rear bar is 986.333.701.10. It looks exactly like the one that is already on the car, and the measurements seem to be the same. So is part # 986.333.701.10 an M030, or is it a Boxster S, non-M030 bar.

Hey Carrie! haha... well since we're still phone tagging...

here was the original post as I described:

http://986forum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=13571

"For sale: I have a set of 2004 M030 combination swaybars for the Boxster for sale. They have about 5k Miles on them, and are in Excellent condition, and bushings are in excellent condition as well.

The front are the standard Sport M030 with 23.6mm diameter and 3.5mm thickness, "S" spec.

The rear swaybar is the upgraded 2003/2004 "S", which are Sport M030 "S" spec, with 19mm diameter and 2.7mm thickness.

*For comparison's sake, the 02' "S" spec rear are 18.5mm and 2.5mm, respectively. The base 2.5/2.7 front are 23.1mm and 3.4mm, respectively."

Chaudanova, you can't respond! I need ToolPants and LilBastard and others to respond! You're funny. So with what you said and the part number of what I got, I should get an answer. I don't think I got the rear M030.

According to this site, it is just a standard bar: http://www.cb-racing.com/boxster_030.html

Oh, and more proof here: http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=20316&pid=104494&st=0&#entry104494

FTD,
Here is a thread with M030 parts list included:
http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=13548
Your rear sway does not match the part # listed for M030 rear sway. Sorry.

Just call Sunset Imports or Suncoast Motorsports and they can give you accurate info.

Pelican Parts also lists it as a standard (not M030 part): http://www.pelicanparts.com/PartsLookup/HTML/986_USA_KATALOG/501-03-Frame3.htm

Or if you're a stickler for official factory documentation, it's also listed as a standard part on Porsche's PET parts catalog (p. 123): https://techinfo.porsche.com/techinfo/pdf/en/catalogues/E_986_KATALOG.pdf
