that soft foam around tube is a noise insulation some w129 and w129 didnt have that. What its suppoused to do is to reduce a induction noise from engine and possibly heat-insulate the air passing thru (cooler air = more power as on turbo charged cars with intercooler) but that heat thing is just my guess.....
