E63 / E64 6 Series (2003 - 2013)
The E63/E64 BMW 6 Series builds on BMW's sporty heritage with aggressive lines and an incredible motor to back the design up. Available in coupe and convertible trims with a standard 4.8 liter engine producing 360 horsepower and 360 lb-ft of torque, the 6-series is a popular choice that exceeds expectations.

Please excuse the way that this is going to sound but I believe that is part of the front vacuum line. It all comes as a kit and covers the whole front end. Check out atlanta bmw for the pics to identify exactly what part you would need.

My 650i motor design is a little different so I cannot check where that pipe goes, but can you follow it off to the left and see what it attaches to?

It looks like part of the CCV system:

Thats the hose that connects secondary air pump to check valves that are on the back side of the engine. If that is only your only crack remove the nut and bracket and just tape it up.

Only when you start it. Can feel some air coming out then after a couple of mins it stops.
