Woah, hang on. Did they says WATER, or OIL?? Its quite common for the Valve Cover Gasket (VCG) to crack and fail with age. The VCG is rubber and over time gets hard and brittle. This causes oil to pool in the spark plug wells. Not water.

I dont see how WATER, can get into this area: - Alberta based BMW Community
