That's just a "short ram" intake. To be a CAI technically it's supposed to go into the brake duct/ bumper.

heat sheild would definetly be a good idea. It looksl ike it could suck quite a bit of hot air in like that. You might also build up a duct from the brake duct like I did, seen here.

Don't aim the feed pipe at the front, aim it at the side of the filter.
Feed pipes can be made out of lots of stuff. If you have a look at your local hardware store youmight find heating ducting (corrigated alloy look) in various diameters. This stuff is great because it resists the heat it's self and keeps the cool air cool.
Rubber hose will inevitably heat up in the engine bay and not be as efficient. The cost for both is about the same.
See http://www.bmw-forums.com/forum/topic15656.html and check out the extra vent hole in the front valance.
