This might be part of the recycler newer cars use. It recirculates spent gasses into the chamber to 1 clean the exhaust (gasses burns longer and cleaner) and to reduce potential knock.

M3 you aware of any this tubing on the late e30s? Im pretty sure this feature wasnt introduced untill people became environmentally aware (those bitches)

No. It has nothing to do with the EGR system.

It actuates a flap to create more restriction in the exhaust at low RPM's for more low-end torque. Also lowers the exhaust noise slightly.
