What's missing from this picture?



The above is the nearside of the engine-bay of my 58 E90 330i Auto. The two white things are threaded studs and there is clearly supposed to be something bolted onto them.

What am I missing? Some environmental nonsense for countries with inadequate gallons? Some option I don't have, like a compressor for steering-wheel refrigarent. Or has something critical fallen off?

Any info/wild-speculation gratefully received.

That's the power steering reservoir bracket. Guess you've got electric PAS!

Exactly that! Why BMW didn't dispense with the bracket on cars with electric steering is one of life's mysteries...

Thanks. I expect electric power steering is good. At least it will be until the Health and Safety Nazis mandate rubber driving gloves. I imagine Germany ebay will sell them.
