What are these parts in engine bay?

Could someone tell me what is the red component shown in this engine bay (circled in red, at the top corner closest to the driver)? I noticed it on the photo that someone posted of their 2008 E92 (euro-spec). I haven't seen it in other cars and mine certainly does not have it.

Also, what is the purpose of the wire and plug that goes into the assembly that feeds air into the engine after the airfilter (I've marked the spot with a blue arrow). Its an electrical connector of some kind, but I can't figure out what it is.
