New to forum 1998 M3

I just bought a '98 M3, was installing new spark plugs and coil boots and found oil on the threads of one of my spark plugs. The rest were dry, is this a valve cover seal? Not the most proficient auto mechanic so looking for some advice here. Thanks for the help!

Welcome!

Valve cover gasket set is what you need along with bolt grommets. Check getbmwparts.com and use realoem.com to find part #s quick.

Good luck.
