Is this normal?

Folks, as the BMW 6 series body of knowledge I come to you with a question. I just replaced my CCVs and noticed that they are not where they are supposed to be according to the OEM diagrams. Drivers side was exactly where I expected it under the head cover trim piece, but the passenger side was not there. Oh where oh where can my CCV be? It was actually located toward the front of the engine by itself next to the throttle body totally encased in a foam casting with hoses going to each cylinder bank. Is this normal?

i would assume its normal, i can't see why someone would decide to move it and if it was moved there would be evidence of the original location being covered or plugged

You have the updated version valve cover to prevent the moisture from freezing on the passenger side. The valve is still there, but in the CCV vent tube on the passenger side. This will be just to the right of the valve cover. This is how it is located on my 750.

Thanks Herb, that's exactly where it is. Looks like a line filter on the vent tube encapsulated by a huge chunk of foam fairly close to the throttle body.
