Took car back to bmw as i thought the gasket they changed under warranty was leaking. They've said it's something to do with the rubber washers that the bolts past through.
Anyone had this problem and how easy is it to change these washers.
Thanks Wane.

I took out the bolts, cleaned them & offending region, RTV's them & screwed em' back in.
PS (problem solved) :)

I actually caught on the oil seepage much earlier than you did.

Take a look at my post #15 on this thread.
There are 2 different kind of screw/bolt for the valve cover gasket. The one that I replace I don't think the rubber piece is replaceable (At least I am not sure how I can get the old one out, and put the new rubber back in without damagin it)
