You might be able to use a valve spring compressor from an auto store. There are a few different types, I have one that might work with a bit modification so will grab a photo if I have time.

You will need a magnetic tool to go with it to catch the retainers.

Before you do so: Did you locate the issue?

Do you have some pictures? I would like to see how it failed.

That explains the oil but not the loss of compression.

I am thinking the valve stem seal since he does not have the head off.

UPDATE

Sorry for posting this super late been super busy with everything lately.

So i took the stem seals off the green circular objects.

I made a home made tool in order for me to install them and got a valve stem removal tool from amazon for $10.

This job i would give 9/10 10 being the hardest difficulty to do at home this is not an easy job like changing an oil.

Cylinder 5 was a nightmare to do it took me 6 hours to put the collet's on it since there is no room to work with.

Mean while i lost 1 collet and had to go to BMW Motorcycle dealer to buy that's right a motorcycle dealer had it and no other.

I also ordered the cam alignment tool, since the gears do have to come out obviously.
https://jet.com/product/S85-BMW-Cam-...9a2055ad0d6401

That is the one that i got.

I am going to align everything tomorrow and hopefully start the car tomorrow, i know that the Vanos is going to need a bleeding i have all the software DIS InstaD/P INPA etc.

Which one is the best to do the job and if possible any tutorials on how to run the bleeding would help.

I am going to upload pictures tomorrow of the tool that i made if anyone is interested as well as all the pictures that i took of the old stem seals and the new ones.

The job took me 2 full days to do just in case if anyone is wondering there is total of 40 stem seals 20 each side with each cylinder having 4.

I commend you devotion and persistence in trying to fix this! It will be very gratifying for you when you do. Please post some pictures of the process steps if you have them. I know it is hard to grab a camera with oily dirty hands.

ISTA/D is the tool to use. In my latest version of ISTA+, I found the bleeding procedure under service jobs. It is a guided procedure. Fire it off and follow the steps. Repeat it a couple of times as many have reported the need for that to be successful.
