    Have you tried resetting the throttle adaptations? That may help if not done yet The oil leak from oil cooler and oil filter housing is common and easy fix Jay

    Possibly considering one of these....

    I have a 530i N53 engine and after the injectors replaced the engine efficiency is amazing. knowing what I know now and was in the market for an E60 I would opt for the N52 530i as it has a lot less problems and cheaper to maintain Jay

    yes probably a vacuum leak, look around the rubber boots and the 2 rubber caps at the back of the inlet manifold
