Exclamation 745Li OIL GUSHING OUT OF MY....

About a month ago, I am just driving my car and the oil pressure is low light pops on, so natural I pull over and see that I have just left a massive amout oil from the street corner to were I am parked now. So I remove the decorative engine cover and notice that looks like a small circle white plug with an allen wrench head on top of has popped out and that is where the oil is gushing out of. So I go in my trunk grab the few tools I have, move some stuff around by the top the engine and pop this bad baby back in. Fill her back with oil and she rides beautifully. About a month later low and behold, low engine pressure light pops on while I am parked, get out car and there is this massive oil puddle underneath my car, not to mention how expensive syntethic oil is these days, but same problem but this time its a different plug, what the heck is going on?

Sounds to me as they were'nt put in properly in the first place and I presume they are plastic, if they are plastic, metal and plastic dont really go, I would go to a machine shop and get them to make some metal ones..sorry I unable to be of more help but I presume we are talking about an E65/E66
