7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
Discussion of BMW's 4th generation E65/E66 7 Series flagship. The E65 generated much controversy, due to its radical styling and iDrive user difficulties. Nonetheless, the E65 broke records to become the best-selling 7-series iteration ever, especially after its 2005 facelift.

Could be the valve stem seal. There are a lot of thread about the stem seal. Search to google or youtube.

Before you resign yourself to a $3k repair, change the crankcase vent valves, it's a cheap 20 minute fix that cost's less than $40 in parts and may be the problem.
