For the record, this 530i MSport thread implies the SJP top vacuum hose goes to the "firewall" in some engine bays (which I find odd, if it turns out to be true):

Mine seems different as it goes to the firewall not to the brake booster. Would the hose be one of these:
Attached are the pics (shrunk to 640x480) from that thread just today.

Does anyone else have this type of upper SJP hose?
