Hi. I picked up my new work car today - a 2001 330i. I love it so far.
Problem number 1 was an easy fix - both grounds corroded on rear light clusters.

Problem number 2 is the oil leak. I wonder if you can tell me if this looks like the valve cover gasket, or something else? Apologies about the picture quality, it was dark outside:

ide spray some TFR on and around the area and power wash it off first ta clean it up and get a better accurate id where its leaking but it does look like the profile gasket...
