Yes there is - have a look at the diagram

http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts.do?model=FB72&mospid=47739&btnr=11_3935&hg=11&fg=15

It is part no 15 on the diagram. The original ones had a foam filter which tended to clog up but the replacement type doesn't have the foam filter .

I got one on ebay for approx £50 inc postage

It is easy to locate once the engine cover is removed but a bit fiddly to replace . It is at the back left of the cylinder head .
