Where is the Power Steering Fluid Reservoir

Can anyone tell me where my power steering fluid reservoir is on my 2014 X3 35i.
I know it makes me sound pretty dumb but I can't find it.
Next to the coolant tank there's a small removable cap (about an inch in diameter) but I don't think that's it. I did not remove the engine cover or the air filter housing but I did look beneath the covers near the firewall.
I know what it should look like - I can find it on my 335is.
Thanks

I think your F25 power steering is electric, not hydraulic. If this is correct, you will not have a fluid reservoir.

Wow, I never thought of that. So I guess I'll never have to drain and refill the fluid.
I guess I should have known that. Thanks for your reply.

Yes the F25 uses electric steering. There is no steering pump nor is there any kind of ps fluid reservoir.
