If you replaced the valve cover gaskets, make sure that they are not leaking. You can do this with a mirror. I would also look at the head gaskets as well, on German cars they can leak oil when they get old. Clean the area off with some spray brake cleaner, ( with the engine off and cool ) then start the engine and watch where the oil comes from.
