The BMW CCV systems, are a real issue, from my experience.

Defeats the whole concept of 'emissions' control, when you always end up sucking oil into the intake like a straw, then burning it.

Or they could have just bit the bullet, and made a vacuum pump to evacuate the crankcase, separate the oil, and feed the harvested air into the intake.

I had an M62tu CCV fail on me on a road trip. #1 cylinder ate the lions share. Had to clean the iridium plugs every 500km.

Didn't trust any local mechanics. Long weekend, middle of the night, car just died on the Hwy. No start....but had my tools.

Also my spare rad, catch can, and water pump with hoses. Just in case.
