Bad week to be a car collector

The Z4M needs Vanos work and a Constant pressure valve.
The E92 needs a steering coupler
The Boxster needs a MAF, AOS, O2 sensors and a primary CAT.

Can you say 5K down the tubes!!?? Sigh.

Oil leaks?

I have an 06 Z4 M and have just noticed my first oil leak ever. Curious what oil leak experiences others have had with their Z's. Might be a good resource for others to hear what's common.
