Perhaps it would be worth cleaning the block as best you can and inspecting after a couple of days to confirm the source of any current leaks .

Personally , I would leave it alone , if the engine isn't leaking badly and oil consumption is neglible .

Member Hertfordshire1 spent a lot of money a few years back , simply to renew gaskets and resolve oil leak issues , as he likes to keep his garage floor immaculate !

seems to be the TENSIONER and Cylinder head cover gasket! maybe the something else, but I will chamge thouse to start with, then drive some 100 kilometers or something and then take a harder look again to see if there is any oil. if not I have solved the problem=) if there is oil i will change the crank-seal to, (cant find the seal number on realom?)

I have a new Tensioner from a M3
and I have a cylinder head cover gasket.

now Im waiting for my tools so I can adjust the valves

so maybe some tips how to change the tensioner and adjusting the valves right.
