2001 BMW 330i Question: oil leak around the top of engine

I see oil on ground and around the top of engine -
Answer 1
you have a leaking valve cover gasket, which is on top. you probably also have a leaking oil filter housing gasket, which is closer to the bottom. these are very common leaks and happen to ALL six cylinder BMW's. -

I second overby's on those gaskets. They are common. Get your PCV system checked also. Zee -
