E34 possible problem

I all,

Im new on this forum,so I would like to congratulate all for this excellent bmw enthusiasts resource.

If possible,I have a few questions regarding my bmw 520i E34 from 1992.

I drive an bmw 530D E39,and I had a 525TDS that I sell not long time ago,so Im used with diesel cars,now I bought this 520i a week ago as a second car,mostly for my wife.

the car is from 1992 but with only 93.000 miles run,looks like new,the engine runs like a clock the body and the interior looks perfect and other things like the dash lights air conditioned and everything works well.

but in fact I notice two strange things:

today I was verifying the engine oil level,and I noticed that the oil smells like gasoline,it smells a lot,I just want to know if this normal on petrol engines,or I have a problem?

other thing is:

sometimes,on the high-way,at high speeds,I notice a smell,like something burning,it smells like coal or something.

the car as been parked for almost a year inside a garage.just to know,since 1999 till now,the car had run only 6.000 miles,mostly at low or very low speeds(on urban areas),and for short periods each time.

sorry my english,Im from portugal and a bmw fan
