Need help identifying part

Can anyone please help me locate a part on RealOEM.com? I cannot figure out what group the part is in ... I am trying to find the scoop/cover that is attached to the very front of the engine bay. Not the cover over the engine with the BMW logo on it but the black cover with the small scoop in the front that appears to be connected to the intake.

Thank you!

Help us help you better...please reveal WHICH E53 X5 you have...model/model year/build date. There are multiple models & 7 engines...thus different diagrams & part nbrs:
  1. 3.0i M54 (2001-06)
  2. 3.0d M57 (2001-03) (Europe only)
  3. 3.0d M57TU (2004-06) (Europe only)
  4. 4.4i M62TU (2000-03)
  5. 4.4i N62 (2004-06)
  6. 4.6is M62b46 (2001-03)
  7. 4.8is N62b48 (2004-06)

If you create a permanent signature that includes model/model year/build date...the info others need to answer your questions, or look up part nbrs & other info, or make specific suggestions/answers based on where your X5 falls within the production range...will be immediate without having to go back and forth trying to retrieve enough info to answer you correctly. It also helps others by being able to identify if your posts apply to their situation when using the forum's search feature.

To Crete a sig, just click on the USER CP link at the top right of the page, the look for the EDIT SIGNATURE link on the left.
