Hello and welcome,
My name is ***** ***** it will be my pleasure to assist you today.
I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.
This is well above acceptable.
If not a leak, the most common cause would be a failed crankcase vent valve or leaking valve seals. Also possible that it is an internal engine wear issue (scoring, rings) but not likely.
You should definitely get this checked out sooner than later by a good bmw garage
Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
