E30 (1982 - 1993)
God's Chariot. The E30 was produced primarily from 1982 through 1991. The cabriolet was the one exception which was produced through 1993.

I moved your question to our E30 3 Series forum, you'll get more help in here. Read our new member guide on how to attache photos, it looks like the photo host you're trying to use has been blocked. Probably as a result of abuse or spam in the past.

Nope. No picture. Try to upload it direct from your phone instead of a link from a photo-sharing site.

Disregard. I managed to follow the link back to Google Pictures and pulled this picture off there.

The valve/relay is the vapor purge valve. The hose should go to the port directly under the throttle valve. It is VERY difficult to get to and impossible to see with the throttle body in place. The hose has been cut or broken. It should be much longer than that.
