It should connect the same way on the s50 throttle body the same way it does on the m44.. I really didn't do anything else other than that.. The cable is a lil too long but it loops around and it works fine

PN 35411163228 only cost $26.30 @ getbmwparts.com. Such an important part, I'd replace it with the correct one.

These things come back to haunt you.
Besides, the cable is plenty old already and could use replacing anyway.
