Whats the name of this part?

I need a new part for my car. Its the piece that covers the washer fluid sprayers in the hood. Its the same color as the hood (cashmere beige), and is grilled.

Maybe this? Finisher 51 13 8 185 824 - aka Hood and grille - Hood and components - Cowl grille.

There also may be: Grid left 51 13 8 166 657, Grid, right 51 13 8 166 658

If you Google that part number, it comes up at a couple vendors as well as on BavAuto.com (they come unpainted).

51 13 8 185 824 Hood Vent - Grill At Base Of Windshield

For a 7-series fastener part you may want a new one that is not worn or broken from removing it.
