What the dickens is this ??

I found this on the engine compartment under tray this morning whilst replacing the water pump (thats a different story)

It looks like it belongs on the vacuum system?

It has a gauss filter in it

Anyone recognise it ?

its off the back of the headlight. There are a number of them on each light and they are breather tubes to allow the air to move as the light heats up and cools down

I have an element of 'M-styling' on my car, If that's a good enough reason for the manufacturers to adorn a 320 with the M badge, then its certainly a good enough reason for me..
