Over time, I've come to know (by necessity) almost every large item in the M54 engine bay ... but some items still are unknown to me ...

What is this engine part?

ooooh- a pop quiz!
Thanks Mark,
I appreciate the help. What I'm doing is getting an annotated photo ready, for newbies and oldies alike, with all the visible parts labeled.

That way, anyone who opens their hood would know what everything is!

Thank you for taking the time and energy to help me in that endeavor!

I wonder what the air filter looks like?
Here is a picture of the old engine-air filter and the new filter side by side.

The old one looked OK but I replaced it anyway.

It won't rain here for the next 10 months and I take the bimmer for a drive over the mountains at least once a week, so, there is a lot of dust in the mountain roads.

Do you guys actually "wash" the engine? I've never done that as I'm too afraid I'll wash the oil out of things that need grease and electrical components that aren't supposed to get soaked.
