Rear bumper cover for ML350 interchangeable with ML320?

I need a new rear bumper cover for my 2003 ML350. Not only are they hard to find but they are expensive too. I did find a bumper cover for a 2001 ML320.
It looks a little different but I gotta believe it will fit my car. Believe it or not these bumpers are held onto the car with 4 bolts.

Does anyone know if the older bumper style will bolt onto my newer model? The body styles haven't really changed that much. Besides, I can get this bumper for only 150 bucks!

Funny, it took me over a year to sell NEW AMG bumper for W163 for 1/2 of its original rice.
Don't go by the engine, but the car chassis.
W163 was made in years 1998 -2005, so both cars/trucks do have the same body.
They come with variations of bumpers, but per my knowledge they all have the same bumper mounts.
I am not a body-man, so can't guarantee this but in worse case scenario the mounts might need some modifications.
And yes, the 4 pcs of 6 mm bolts holding the bumper (plus slide-in brackets on the sides) are far away from old Buick my father could lift by the steel bumper.
