Where can I buy an extra bitch clip???

I lost one during the 7500k swap. Is this something I can pick up at the dealership or Pep boys? Does anyone have any idea what that part's technical name or part number is?

Here are some pics of what that little bastard looks like...

Pretty sure it's called a bitch clip in the BMW AG parts database.

OK, I'm not going to ask

I am definitely not going to be the first person to ask what the heck a "bitch clip" is. I would never do that.

I mean, despite having driven other makes for decades, I already know it's probably not THIS "bitch clip":


And I'm pretty sure it's not THIS bitch clip (below).

So I'm left thinking it has something to do with the lights???

Bitch clip is that little metal wire form that holds the back cover on the headlight.

Just a heads up. I went to the parts department today to buy a new bitch clip since mine magically disappeared during the 7500k install. The bitch clip comes as part of the rear cover so you need to buy a whole new rear cover, 15 bucks for that crap.
