So, maybe check plugs and do a compression test as well?
Yes, "Crankcase Ventilation Valve"

(and BTW, "Beemers" have two wheels, "Bimmers" have 4...."BIMMERFEST", ya dig ? )

Re: that CVV job:
Did you do it yourself ? If not, there`s no way for you to know if it was done *properly*. Was the dipstick tube removed from the block and cleaned *thoroughly* ? If that detail was overlooked, the oil could still be being diverted into the intake, rather than draining back into the sump. This is where examining the plugs comes in....
