Could you please be more specific in order to get the best advice possible. What type of smell is it? Oil, coolant, grease? Is there any smoke along with the smell?

thanks for your repley! I think its more like oil or grease but there is no smoke and the engine is really hot it self (no worning or lite lights). I dont know if that is normal with BMWs. However, it looks and runs great. I dont have any complains. Iit is very cleane and kept in good condition. I have inspection papers that shows, what was done and everything is apporved and checked.

Could just be oil spilled when topping up engine. If theres no smoke/coughing/spluttering/warning sounds or light. I would just keep an eye on it for now. BMW engines tend to run a little warmer? Get in touch if you need more info

2001 model year for BMW did not have a 335 in the model line-up. Perhaps a 325?
