oil cosumption

I am also having an oil consumption issue, although by bmw's standards it is acceptable; so after dealing with some pricks at the dealership I decided to look into it my self. I popped the hood and noticed oil on the headers, in no means is that a good thing. 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.
