IBS Sensor/ Negatuve cable HELP!

So I ordered the IBS cable from Autohausaz, Hella Battery Cable P/N: HL-12427603567 for a special price of $118.92...well it came yesterday and for some reason it looks a little different than the 2006 BMW M5 E60 IBS cable that I had even though I called and confirmed that this is the right part #....
1. Why is the Orientation different?
2. Do I need an adapter?
3. If this is not the correct part #, what is it (I did search btw)

Pics below (1-4)

Also about the 5th,6th, & 7th pics, there is an unplugged cable on the positive side...wth could it be?

You may need 1 or 2 adapters to make it work. That part has been updated so many times.
The extra plug is for the factory shipping battery disconnect switch. It should be plugged into anything.
