Well, if you own one you know that the power steering reservoir is just nasty, leaking, filth!  I had my power steering hoses replaced under my original BMW warranty, but this reservoir just leaked and leaked.  It can make it look like the hoses are leaking, the clamps aren't tight and so on.  While inspecting the cap, I noticed a little rubber O-Ring in the cap that had been mutilated from taking the cap on and off, plus I assume the heat these cars generate under the hood played a big roll in the demise of this O-Ring.

So I searched the parts database and sure enough I found a new O-Ring for the reservoir.
