So i lifted up the engine cover and was checking the bolts on the valve cover adjacent to the oil and to my surprise i was capable of pulling one bolt completely out and loosen others with my hand. After talking to my mechanic, he said this is a normal problem for the e90 330/325 as the valve cover came over torqued from the factory.
My gut wants me to be skeptical of what your mechanic says. But my oil consumption rate has increased so im open to new ideas.

Im at about 1 qt every 6,000 miles. I have 79k on the clock, and never had to top off my oil before i hit 68k miles.

Dunoo wtf is going on.
