If you have a K&N filter, maybe your lower intake tube disconnected from your upper intake tube? See my thread in the general forum...

Did you check the installation? Our MAFs are picky. They like to be level and straight up and down.

If you look over everything and can't find a problem, re-install the stocker and see if the noises go away.

Try re-installing the CAI again, and find out what the codes are.

I don't see how if you keep the stock one on how it doesnt make the noise. Are you sure its engine related, like coming from the inside of engine? It could be something rubbing.

Take the car down to either BMW or your local mecanic, have them install the intake, check the codes, and they will tell you what to do. It should be too bad, prolly just a MAF Sensor problem or something.
