Exhaust clamp

Noticed a subtle rattle a couple weeks ago and finally had some time to get under the car and take a look. It was a tinny sound so I started looking at the downpipe, but everything was tight. Looked back a bit and the clamp that holds the mid pipes down has disappeared!

Anyone know how I can ahold of a replacement?

Try your local BMW dealer for the exhaust bracket. You have a N55 right>?

Looks like #5 in this pic... $35... #18207553604

Actually missing #6 & #10. The top part is the hanger and that's still there. The clamp/ bottom piece and the bolt are gone.

I've got a cat less downpipe in, don't want them snooping around down there. Although, I'm sure they can tell by the sound.
