    Just checked my oil level today and my dipstick was really creamy, is this something to be worried about? This was after a 60 mile round trip, literally oil was hot. The oil cap has no creamy residue on it. Am I over worrying, or should I check elsewhere?

    Basically I own an e36 328i se 1996. Use it as a drift car, unfortunately my original engine decided to give up and cook itself to death after a day out last week.
