    does it run noticeably badly?
    could be MAF, Temp or any other sensor really, might be worth getting the codes read

    its possible, hard to tell without a picture, if it looks broken it probably is.

    unless you know its running correctly by hooking it up to some diags you dont know wether it has air leaks or fuel problems or compression issues etc etc...

    or an engine system decoke on a suitable machine that some garages use can restore emmisions...
    330i sport a big chunk of berlin...

    May people change the lambda sensor which 8 out of 10 is not normally the problem

    My advise is take it to some who knows what they are doing and has the right equipment to test the car

    This will save you spending on parts that are not needed
