WOW! Thank you so much, 330ciandr6. I've had an oil leak for a year, and THEN I found your post. I replaced the valve cover gasket, the oil filter housing gasket, and the VANOS line. STILL had a leak. After all of this, and finding your article, I found it was #4, the oil separator drain tube. It was degraded to a point of having a HOLE in it, on the side towards the front of the car. The whole rubber hose was soft and mushy, with a big oily tear in the front. I'm oil free for two days, and I'm grateful to you. Well done!
