Any Head gasket issues

Hello Bimmer Techs,
took my coupe in for an oil change, drove 134 miles afterwards and 2 days later a small oil puddle on the garage floor. First I thought the brass washer not installed on oil pan because had it happen to my 12 750Li XDRIVE. Once I took it back, they mechanic tested system with dye, made a complete mess of the engine bay in an attempt to tell me I had major issues like HEADGASKET blown... I immediately went "SUPER SAYAN XXV" on him because I had just cleaned my engine bay and looked under the hood before leaving home... The nerve of a CROOK, right? SO he tells me $5500 to 40 hours of labor to replace the head gasket . WHAT THA FILTH AND FOUL.... So, I'm asking my Beemer Brothers, anyone out there with a leaking head gasket? Valve cover in great shape, replaced the oil filter housing 2 gaskets as well as intake manifold gaskets, still see little oil seepage. I'm a disabled Veteran and I felt like i was shot again in a non conflicting battle

Any model car can have a head gasket failure. Most do not fail. Over the 6 years you have owned the car has it ever overheated? Gone low on coolant?

You could have it checked by another BMW mechanic.
