I just purchased a 2001 330ci and immediately I noticed that I had a really bad oil leak. It leaks easily from the right hand side, I am assuming that it is the valve covers , but I haven't had time to investigated it yet, I haven't jacked it up or anything to look under it. So I don't have anything to report as to the fix, hopefully when I do I'll remember to come back to the website and report my findings and the fix. - gchatman
