My leak was at the top of the a-pillar, it came disconnected. It was dripping down by the glovebox and ran all the way down from the top of the pillar. I just plugged it back in and was good to go.

It's not only balance of the engine but also balance of the cars handling. They lay the i6 on its side in the engine compartment, this keeps the center of gravity low and making the car handle better.

The oil sensor is a common thing to go bad, just replace it. You mentioned that it smokes out of the tail pipe and that's usually the CCV.

I did, the e36 m3 rear shocks do not match the front e46 front. Therefore it won't handle as good as the matching ones. It's really unfortunate that your to stupid to understand this.
