435i GC Charge Pipe

I'm a new owner with a 435i GC and have read on the forums that the charge pipe is a weak spot. Is the charge pipe the cold air intake pipe? Can someone post a pic from the engine bay?

The charge pipe is the pipe that goes from your intercooler (front of the car) to the throttle body of the engine.
This is the weak spot which breaks often.

Here is a link to the regular charge pipe

You do have another pipe called Turbo to intercooler charge pipe, and this one connect on the intercooler from the other side (intercooler to turbo).
This pipe does not break often but most still replace it when replacing the intercooler.
