Angry new here i have a 95 325i e36 and i really need some help

i have a 95 325i and i just did the oil change today i was told to put 6.9 quarts of 10-40 in it, and it was smoking alot from under the hood and the exhaust so i put a new o2 sensor in it and it still smokes after i drive it hard. I can tell the engine is not performing at its full potential cause im haveing trouble keeping up with civics! its got a dinan cold air intake and im just not sure what it could possibly be.

my first thought was that you spilled oil on the block or the headers...

but if you lost power?? did you change the oil filter??

yes i did change the oil filter and did spill a little bit of oil, however i lost power before the oil change and it was smoking before the oil change also. also i discovered today a burning smell comming from my front left wheel and there is grooves in the rotor so maybe its time for some new breaks.
