Mice or Squirrels. They steal your dogs food and hide it for winter. In this case in your airbox.

Rats. For some reason, rats love BMW's. I can't tell you how many times I found dead rats on top of gas tanks, in air boxes, in belly pans... you name it. Probably a squirrel though, they would typically store the food where a rat would just eat it.

Yep. What he said. I see cars in the shop at times with parts of the insulation under the hood chewed up, and moved to different locations. Sometimes you see dropping on top of the engine..
I've had a brand new 3 series with the fuel pump wires chewed apart, on top of the fuel tank. Makes you wonder what may be along for the ride.

Ever see the plug wires on the v12 engines? They have tough rings, like an insulator, all over them. I was told that was to prevent rats from chewing them apart.
