Mein Auto: E36 M3(S50)
s50 burning oil

I'm pretty sure my s50 is burning oil. Theres a burning smell after driving it and the oil level goes down pretty significanly. I just replaced the valve cover gasket so what else could it be?

It sounds like you have a tired engine...worn piston rings/glazed bore.
It also sounds like the crank case ventilation system is not working well.
