I had a strong smell coming from the engine. I opened the hood to check this out; I was shocked to see oil dripping over the manifold. The car is out of service at the dealer to replace the Valve Cover Gasket!
I am pretty disappointed. My X1 has 44,000km. This is my first BMW and the first car over 20 years of ownership leaking oil enough to spoil the driveway. My VW jetta TDI 360,000 km never lost a drop.
What does it mean for the next year or two? Is it a sign of problem to come?
Do you have any oil leakage issues?
