Help with Rubber Hood Bumper Location

Gentle men, I have owned two 1Ms and those little pesky rectangular rubber pieces that hook up to the lip on the underside of the hood still vex me. They fly off when drying the hood and I can't recall exactly where they go. If by some miracle, yours is in the exact spot it came in, could you snap a picture that gives me a reference point for re-attaching mine.

Thank you!

It's on the 2011 135i parts list. It's probably some bumper for hood lift, if I had to guess. I think a lot of people have lost them as they fall off easily but I want to keep my baby complete.

Thank you all for the cool pics and happy new year!

ECS says on their site that it prevents over-closing and rattling of hood!

This little rubber fall off easily and can't grip the hood anymore when it aged. I found mine fall off to the cowl.

I found mine in their proper place on the hood, but ordered 2 more from the above link because my car is 6 years old (bought in Oct 2010) and my hood bump stops have definitely aged some. Kinda surprised they were still in place. Pretty cheap so it's not like I'm spending/wasting much money.

They prevent metal on metal contact with the hood and inner fender ledges.

At high speeds the front corners of the hood will start to peel upwards. This starts around 120 mph and faster. The hood edges raise up several inches. I believe nachob a photo of his 1M at a HPDE recently showing how the edges of the hood peel upwards.

Yes. I thought it had something to do with that. I'm glad I didn't see that picture until I returned to US. I was going 150mph on autobahn in ignorant bliss. If I would've known the hood moves so much it would've made that ride less comfortable. : )

A few years back Elsabor67 and I were driving "briskly" to the 'Ring. Somewhere around Aschaffenburg on the A3... were were driving quite fast(>240 kph)... when Elsabor67 rings me up on his cell phone. I was like WTH mad... he was calling me to tell me that my hood was open... and I just laughed and told him to look at HIS hood!

Looking back THAT was pretty funny(but kind of dangerous) talking on the phone for that short bit at those speeds!. Luckily there was no to little traffic that day.

I might try a drop of crazy glue and see if it holds.

I checked mine last night and one is missing. The other is barely clinging on, and has also migrated I think. Might try some Sugru after I source some new ones.

What is the part number for these rubber hood bumpers? Sounds like they weren't secured with any fasteners and tend to get lost easily.
