You can probably use your existing cover with any rear case, but the appearance will be different (M97 is thicker and has a different finish).
They will also fit the M96 that I have with the use of what I think is called the "clean bearing kit" from BMW. It has a 3mm spacer to compensate for the greater depth of the taper bearing.
