Im glad to see some people taking the effort to improve upon the stock set up. However, I cant help to notice that you pluming seems to be a bit undersized. You would benifit more if your tubing was the same size as the MAF or larger (to inclued the filter opening). After all, a CAI does you no good if its trying to suck through a straw....right?

These may help:

- CAI 101 should I do it or not (1) and which is better, stock or aftermarket cold air intake (1) (2) & a home-made CAI (1) & the general consensus on the effectiveness of an aftermarket CAI versus the stock BMW CAI (1) (2) (3) (4) (5) & how to reduce the risk of hydro lock (1) (2) & what about a K&N oiled air filter over the stock air filter (1) & a forced induction group buy (1) and adding nitrous oxide to your E39 (1) & links to suppliers to improve performance of your bimmer (1)
Please read the suggested threads and add value, either by pictures or by descriptions, so the next person stands on your shoulders.
