My car leaks oil too. I think it's from the oil pan gasket.

Hope this helps.

Valve cover gasket leaks are very common in BMW. I used to get burning oil smell while driving and oil used to drip under the vehicle. I used to bring my car to mechanic and he used to fix it and within two weeks, it'll start leaking once again.
