Go to realoem.com, plug in the info (I think it is the last 7 ov the VIN or something like that) and you will be able to find the part number. Then, either buy from BMW or you can use any of the good parts sites. There are several that are sponsors of this site. I have used BAVauto, RMEuropean and Autohausaz and have been pleased.

Hope this helps.

a whole new throttle body will be expensive and it is labor intensive. Drive-by-cable mind you...

Spring will probably close the throttle in the event of control failure.
