Head gasket or valve cover gasket

Hey Guys am pretty sure my valve cover gasket is bad, since I am getting oil in my spark plugs, but any input will help, thanks

Make sure your valve cover isn't cracked. That happens quite often.

Did you spill oil around when you pour oil into your motor, which plugs were affected.

I am afraid that it may be the reason why my head cover is leaking *again*. Gasket has been replaced once under warranty. I guess that after 2 years after the repair I am stuck with the bill.

Yup +1. Pretty sure if you check those bolts, at least one of them is broken. They will turn easy if they are. I can turn a few of mine by hand.

was reading the emission warranty of the service manual and its says that head valve cover gasket is covered under warranty but is doesn't say valve cover gasket, assuming that's BMWs way of saying it
