Intresting; looks like he replaced the factory CCV with a cheapo PCV and a catch can. Also interesting that he mentioned installing an air/water separator. I might have to look into that.

FWIW, here is an excellent thread on the stock CCV system; normal operation, testing, and replacement. Well worth the time to read and understand how the system is supposed to work before going to the bother of replacing or modifying it.

How to test the BMW E39 pressure-controlled crankcase ventilation system (CCV)? - Bimmerfest - BMW Forums
