Welcome, Tony!  You should find this place pretty helpful.  There are frequent meets in Auckland, take a look at the Auckland room.

E36 BMW + 4 Cylinder engine also = engine oil leaks in my experience, around the damn oil filter case.

Come on mate, this is a common malady that doesn't discriminate!  BMW engine = oil leaks.

The M43 is probably the last BMW motor which only has very few leak points which are also easy to fix. 

I'd hate to imagine the leaks on these modern BMW engines once they get old (if they aren't already in the scrap yard that is)

I’ve also heard horror stories of the later V8’s blowing a water line inside the V, dang BMW, get yer sh*t together.

this is a 'feature' for some N62 V8s; however, the cause is recognised as poor servicing, not changing coolant at the recommended intervals with correct BMW coolant.  

There's a repair part available from AGA Tools that significantly reduces the effort and complexity (and thus the cost) of the job.
