HELP! No one can find the part# I need to reinstall my headlight!

I need help. I am pulling my hair out from hours of searching.
I went off the road in my car, when towing it out my headlight was broken - the LF outer headlight "cup" bracket is missing so I need to order one but check this out
http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts...58&hg=51&fg=75
when myself or my local dealer looks up my car by vin on their ETK or myself on Realoem the part I need is #2 & #3 on the breakdown that looks like a cup and its mount but there is no description or PN listed and at the dealer their photo doesnt even show it any longer they keep sending the other part (#4). I have looked at older and newer build dates as well as other models and cant find a model that doesnt skip from 1 to 4 on the breakdown.... this piece is all that is stopping my car from being finished at the bodyshop!! Please help. Thank you in advance. Also I could take the passenger side one out but the screw is from the back so I will need to remove the fender liner or more to access the part to get the PN off it. Blah
thanks again for your time.

welp - I found it - 2 hours of searching! then I asked you guys for help then I googled it differently and found it on a e90 M3 and coupe only on this website and then crossed it on realoem and sure enough - same dang breakdown but they included the part number.... ridiculous. I swear to god my car has this - ill take a picture of the one on the other side.

damn, bmwfans dot info is also a good website for stuff like this.

Let me know if you need any help sourcing the parts though, I have a couple friends at the dealer.

Garage List
Yea, RealOEM (and by extension, ETK I assume) is not always accurate and comprehensive. Sometimes a part that should be listed for a specific model/chassis is not and the only way to get the part number is dig under a different model/chassis, as you have undoubtedly discovered (M3 vs 335xi).
