Valve cover gasket is dry and brittle replace it.....http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KiaZUptEg1A ....the person on the video is calling it a head gasket incorrectly. It;s the valve cover that needs to be removed and the valve cover gasket is to be replaced........http://www.fcpeuro.com/products/bmw-valve-cover-gasket-set-e46-e39-11129070990

With BMW's there are common issues that happen every two years...Oil Filter stand Gasket...Valve cover gasket, and oil pan gasket. You need to understand that when oil touches rubber.. it destroys it over time. Also these cars have constant issues with oil vanos lines as well, and high pressure power steering hoses.
