Hmmmm....I'd be showing these photos to my local BMW dealer....a tiny amount would be fairly normal ...but not the amount you have. Doesn't look good TBH.

maybe some times, i missed a gear change at high rev, and i heard
some strong klung.
maybe flakes from gears?

Like said above. You should show this to a BMW dealer ASAP.
Let us know the outcome.
