It's been a long time ago... But finally the beast is working fine again. The story would be too long and boring to tell, but the car was at 2 different dealerships, including BMW Hungary, and none of them found what the real problem was. I've spent a lot of money and time (and it was winter in the meantime), but finally i've found a guy, who is a real BMW guru, and he was able to fix the car in 4 days. The culprit was a flexible oil pipe, belonging to VANOS. Just telling it, so that if anyone of you experience VANOS problems, it is mostly caused by this pipe, and the leak not visible from the outside of the car, as the oil goes back to the oil tray, but there is no oil pressure for vanos units.
Damn, i almost got rid of the car, was so devastated that noone was able to fix it...
Now i feel like i have a new car!
