Wait, you tore the first hose? The one closest to the airbox? If so, a K&N CAI will take care of the problem since it comes with a new hose for that spot. It takes some effort, but it'll come apart!

I have the K&N. I don't think that there's a better intake for the price. But that's just my opinion.

take a picture of what you broke...if its the wires to the MAF are broken you need a new MAF.

Is it the tubing coming straight off of the airbox going to the MAF or is it the tubing going from the MAF to the manifold itself?

Those tubes usually don't tear that easily

either way check out getbmwparts.com

The K&N comes with an ABS plastic tube to replace that hose. So as long as that's the only thing damaged then, yes, a K&N will make your SES light not come on. You might have to get the code cleared.
