BMW M135i Oil Leaks
Hi Guys
Discovered oil stains and oil drops at my parking.
Checked the level of the oil and it was 1 pint short so filled it at the garage.

Took the car to bmw for assessment and they said it was leaking from the following places

Tappet cover
oil filter
vanos seals leaking

any idea why so many leaks?

Car got stage 2 and down pipe?

Ex: 2006 VW Polo 2.0 ( Stolen)
Current: 2012 Golf 6 gti 35 edition
Current: 2013 Bmw M135i

RE: BMW M135i Oil Leaks
Did they steam clean the engine and look for leaks or was it their assumption?The oil filter housing does kak out, I had the issue on my wife's f30. I have also noticed that the tappet cover is sweating out oil. But it has not affected the normal oil usage in any way. Thumbs

My F30 335i was leaking too, BMW did a new Oil pump as well as filter housing IIRC, etc. Never a problem since. IIRC it was around R18k on motorplan prices..
