If you have oil coming out of the dipstick the n you have pressure building in the crankcase, I would go for the PCV , as the crankcase is not venting correctly.
Im not sure where its located on your model, but it looks like this:
BMW Crankcase PCV Valve E46 E36 E39 528i 328i 323i M3 Z:eBay Motors (item 350152462189 end time Jul-11-09 10:07:43 PDT)
And should be replaced every 30,000 miles.
I currently have the same problem with my 1993 325i. Unlike yours, I can't start the car if the AFS is connected. Just curious if thats my same problem...
