when you remove the v/c gasket, on both ends of the head there are 2 half moon cutouts that have rubber plugs in them. people sometimes don't change them and when they leak it looks as if the head is leaking. in your case it may very well be the head. I'm just saying check these first, it could save you alot of money.

Forgot to mention, i also have an oil leak on my e34 (92).... Do the e34s also have these rubber shaft plugs?

If it were the rubber shaft plugs, would the oil be leaking down the driver's side of the engine?

Any idea what would leak down the driver's side? head gasket maybe?
