    Pressure Hose to Throttle Body Clip

    Does anyone have a source or substitute for the spring clip that secures the pressure hose to the throttle body?

    I think the only way to get that part is to buy the stock charge pipe at around $200. I can't find the clip listed individually on RealOEM. Could one of the stock intercooler clips work? Maybe you could get a piece of steel wire and bend up a clip yourself, although I'm sure that might be hard without one to use as a template. It would be cheap to try.

    I know it's a rarer part, but I've lost spring clips for some of the electrical connections and my local dealer had a few kicking around. Won't hurt to ask them.

    Local guy that put on an aftermarket charge pipe using silicone couplers/T-clamps instead of the factory O-ring & C-clip at the charge pipe/throttle body connection gave it to me. I bought the coffee.Click here to enlarge

    The O-ring is a standard replacement $3.00 part I got from Lieth BMW. The big rip is from BMW the clip is only available as part of the factory replacement plastic charge pipe for $210.

    A guy on one of the BMW sites offered me one for $20 which seemed a bit steep.Click here to enlarge

    I would have offered to send him some lube cause the clip might hurt when he tries to shove it up his ass.

    I'm laughing... and have no desire to know how large these clips are.
