HELP!!! P0171 and P0174

I have a 2003 BMW 325Ci. My SES light is on and I pulled the codes at i got P0171 and P0174 which says the car is running too lean bank 1 and 2.

The boot is not cracked or leaking.
I checked for any vacuum leaks with carb cleaner.
I cleaned the MAF.
I checked the fuel filter.
I dont think it would be the O2 sensors because its unlikely for them both to go out, but with my luck anythings possible.

Before i fork out the $300.00 for a new MAF anybody else got any suggestions?

PCV?

DON'T change the MAF !
Does it idle roughly or even misfire occasionally?

ccv?what does it do if you don`t mind me ask, is there a pending code , can you check your maf with a scope pattern through your scan tool. you can check you other main sensor the same way to avoid any part swapping with no leads

Could be fuel pressure or tired injector(s)...
If the O2 sensors failed, I think it would run rich !!
