The cowl part is the smaller piece that covers the area behind the engine between the air manifolds (3rd pic in my first post). The part referred to as cowl flashing is the entire lower plastic and rubber strip that runs along the bottom of the windshield--the longer piece (1st pic in my second post). I only photographed about 1/3 the length of it in order to get a closeup of the condition of the part. Th part numbers for the 528 will differ. I had to special order both parts from the BMW dealership, and got them in about three days.
I ended up dragging the tech out to the car and pointed to the pieces I needed, and he told me what they were called and ordered the parts. I copied the part numbers from the stickers on the packaging.
