How can I fix oil venting into the radiator?

(2001 BMW 325i)
in San Ysidro, CA on November 03, 2012
When I was checking the radiator I found oil in the water. I checked and sure enough it appears as if the engine is venting oil into the radiator from someplace. Any ideas? A friend suggested it my be an oil cooler gone bad, there is no water in the engine The car doesn't smoke to I don't believe it is a head gasket, Any thoughts?

Oil pressure is higher in the transmission then in the engine, if this is automatic then you need to replace the Radiator!
