Washer Fluid Reservoir Cap

Does anyone know the part number for the plastic white cap for the Washer Fluid reservoir (part 61678366422)? It's the larger 5L tank. I've googled it and ordered one from ECS Tuning and I had to return it. I've been to my dealer twice with no luck. Thanks!

RealOEM shows both tanks use the same cap:

And up to 2002 it was PN 61667264145.
And nothing at ESCT works?

Did you check realoem? Looks like 61667467951, although pics show mostly black ones.
edit - Vintage42 got it

Believe me when I say it fits perfect, I am a perfectionist when it comes to making sure it's done right. ( even down to the euro bmw clear washer fluid)

Edit: not sure how I missed that post but it would have saved me about 60.00 in trial and error. Bmw seems to have really dropped the ball on dropping numbers for parts and or ceding them incorrectly on the Z3 line.

It's the clear washer fluid used when the cars were new. In the states the government requires it to be dyed so the not so smart out there don't assume its water and drink it where as in most of Europe it's clear.

Like Max said, 61661364807 is the best choice. It's an E28 part.
