these are the parms i used:

Series: E36
Body: convertible
Model: 328i
Country: ECE
Year: tried both 1996 and 1999
Steering: right

are these correct? for these parms, the part # wasn't in the database.
from the look of it, those are the last 7 digits of the number right?

for future reference bmw part #s follow this format:
xx xx x xxx xxx

from the description of the part, when you say round, do you mean like a cylinder? how big is it? small like a red bull can or big like a bulk 100 pack of CD-roms, or big and flat like a pizza? what kind of hoses--vacuum hoses or fluid hoses?

not sure how the emissions systems differ on euro cars. some "round things with hoses" could be carbon canister, icv, compressor, intake manifold (6 round things), brake booster, hydro unit.
