absolutezero273c is on a distinguished road
Here is the oil dipstick mod I was looking for on the e46. Like I said, I just can't remember what exactly I did to the 3.0 e53.
I agree that short distances don't allow it to get up to operating temp but this very thin area can clog and prevent the oil from draining back to the pan. Then the oil just backs up and leaks out the top of the lowest fitted hose on the CCV.
