    Welcome Scott.

    Check out swirl flaps (brake up fall into the engine and destroy it but can simply be removed) and crank case brether if you've not already.

    There's a few Scott with four digit numbers after there name this could get confusing

    Look at these guides on the fourm.
    http://www.bimmerforums.co.uk/forum/...cement-t15571/
    http://www.bimmerforums.co.uk/forum/...0td-or-t15944/

    Bassicaly if the swirlflaps are left in there quite a chance of them without warning falling into the engine generally righting it off, take them out eliminates the risk

    The breather often gets over looked at services and the original "loo roll" type one is prone to blocking, which pressurises the crank case and forces oil out the turbo seals ruining the turbo.
    If it replaced every 2nd oil change then its fine better still repace it with the "vortex" type one which can't block and dosent need replacing

    Edit; bit more info here http://www.bimmerforums.co.uk/forum/...l-flaps-t5537/
