Hi so I have a 2002 BMW 330ci coupe M-sport. My problem is that ive noticed oil lightly spraying out of the exhaust even just on idle. The car does burn through oil quickly and im thinking its down to this leak into the exhaust system any ideas guys?

Whoa oil? You sure it's not dirty water or something? The only way that you'd have a leak that gets into the exhaust system is if you have an exhaust leak (i.e. at a gasket somewhere) and oil drips onto it. Or if you're getting oil into the combustion chamber. Are you also getting smoke?

When you say "burn through oil quickly" do you mean 1 qt every few thousand miles, or 2-3 qts?

Would like to see some other information on this.

Does it show leaking under the car anywhere
What are the fuel trims.......
Mileage?

Maybe the CCV is sucking oil and needs to be replaced. Probably should do it before it hydrolocks the engine.
