WTB: OEM charge pipe c-clip

Well my OEM charge pipe broke off on tuesday while driving so i ordered a ER but i no longer have the c-clip to secure the ER... Does anyone have an extra c-clip they would be willing to part with by any chance? I spoke to BMW parts but in order to get a c-clip you need the full charge pipe...

That's nonsense.

It's called a Spring clip and it's like 7$ at dealer and 3$ online.
Newbs at parts. Smh.

Hahahahaha do you have a part number and are you sure all the spring clips are the same? I was looking at the part specific to the charge pipe and two different people told me you can't buy it seperate...

Ok well i guess i'll have to try that. Thanks!

Edit: Does this look like it? Even though that one is for the intercooler are you sure it will work with the charge pipe?

Well i can't seem to find any spring clip except that one... Anyway you could try to find it since you have ordered one in the past. I need it by next week since that's when the new charge pipe comes and i'm sure my shop hates having my car just sitting there

I didn't lose it, it blew off. Tuesday I was driving and heard a loud pop. When i pulled over my charge pipe was broken at the spot where the clip was. This isn't my picture but it looked similar to this:
