SOURCE: radiator leak
It could aslo be the exausht manifold leak i just last month had to have that fixed. run your car for some time then stop and check underneath see if it is leaking towards back end of engine or if you can hear a hissing sound fron middle top of engine

is the car smoking blue or is the oil leeking out ?
if the is consuming oil by buring it while driving the faults are either :
Valve seats / Burnt valves
or sump compression which can force oil into the combustion chamber causing it to burn it and expel the burnt oil via the exhaust system.
Either way, its going to pretty expensive on a 2002 5 series.

The rack can leak i've done a few but is not common, the most common is the return line which is used as a cooler line also, this line is under the van the best thing to do is to clean oil leak and dry then start and watch for the leak inorder to pinpoint,hope this helps.

the best way to find a oil leak is to get a better look go under the car and look at the oil pan for any signs of leakage open your hood and look around the valve covers and intake for leakage these are the normal places oil will leak from first. second i would watch the exhaust for white or blueish white smoke and third i would pull the plugs to see if there is oil being burned.

It is not a solution, but as long as there is oil in there, you are good. Just make sure you keep a good eye on it, just in case it gets work. Best wishes. If you need anything, let me know Bob. I am always here.
