Not sure about BMW but Mercedes have the part number printed on almost every part, makes getting replacement parts much easier.
I think its a custom made part so no part numbers apply !

Definitely a bodge but unfortunately BMW never made an OEM pipe that connected a 2.8 engine to a 2.5 Inlet manifold, hence the need to bodge.
