Bmw possible problem?

Hi all,
If possible,I have a few questions regarding my bmw 520i E34 from 1992.

I drive an bmw 530D E39,and I had a 525TDS that I sell not long time ago,so Im used with diesel cars,now I bought this 520i a week ago as a second car,mostly for my wife.

the car is from 1992 but with only 93.000 miles run,looks like new,the engine runs like a clock the body and the interior looks perfect and other things like the dash lights air conditioned and everything works well.

but in fact I notice two strange things:

today I was verifying the engine oil level,and I noticed that the oil smells like gasoline,it smells a lot,I just want to know if this is normal on petrol engines,or I have a problem?

other thing is:

sometimes,on the high-way,at high speeds,I notice a smell,like something burning,it smells like coal or something.

the car as been parked for almost a year inside a garage.just to know,since 1999 till now,the car had run only 6.000 miles,mostly at low or very low speed.

you should service the engine since its parked that long time,change the oil and the oil filter and clean up the fuel injectors and change the spark plugs.then u can drive it as u like.change the air flow filter also and use only recomended fuel and castrol oil for the engine.
