If the gasket does not solve the problem I fear I may have a crack somewhere in one of the two housings.
did you get it fixed?

Sorry I didn't provide an update to this thread but yes part of the oil leak issue was resolved. However I also discovered I am leaking oil from the crank seal which was most likely damaged from when the belt shredded and wrapped around the crank pulley it damaged the seal. It seems the most difficult part of fixing this is finding the damn glue that bmw required to change the seal. I should be able to fix the seal tomorrow as my parts are expected to arrive in the AM. I have a post about the crank seal leaking I will update with the specifics of how that repair goes as i know I'm not the only person with a leaking crank seal.
