That is a fuel filter #6 here:

RealOEM.com   BMW E30 320i FUEL PIPES AND FUEL FILTERS


Quite easy to find all you have to do is key in the part number off the pipe in to RealOEM.com Online BMW Parts Catalog that's all you need to do to find what things are, just find the part number or a part number of something that's fixed to the part your trying to identify.

all the information i find about replaceing the fuel filter says it is eaither located in engine bay or by rear wheel. I am guessing one is a main filter and one is a secondry or something. Should i replace both? car is at 120 thou k's and i have no idea when either were last changed.

The thing in the engine bay i was looking at is called a charcoal canister

what you got under rear wheel is also fuel filter, over the filter maybe fuel transfer pump too,
i found replacing this filters is waste of time since i always open them and never seen one dirty
