Last two days I drove 800km and for the last 300km I had a ride with a blown engine head gasket. Fine droplets of oil onto the drivers mirror, the wind deflectors and of course onto my cap, glasses and face.

Could well be that a great looking green M3W is searching for a new owner in the near future.

That sounds like a nice adventure - shame to hear about the oil spraying all over though. I hope it's an easy fix.

Hopefully it will just be the rocker cover gasket and not the head gasket, they're not very good quality gaskets and the bolts can tend to loosen off which can let the oil out as you describe.
Good luck with sorting it out.

Everything sorted.
Had a gasket on stock (guess why!)

I asked the dealer a year ago to exchange the gaskets

En route to the Pickersleigh 3 ... bit too much speed and understeer in the wet on a small roundabout placed seemingly at random on the A44 S of Worcester...

With the M3W Steel Hawk over the Susten Pass in Switzerland.
A trip from Steingletscher to the top of the pass. Training for the Grindelwald Meeting.
Video recorded with a GoPro Fusion. Edited with PowerDirector 16, and then the speedmeter and track are displayed with the RaceRender software.
The whole trip was from Zurich over the Brunigpass, Sustenpass and back to Zurich. Duration about 4 hours. It was a lot of fun.
But see for yourself. https://youtu.be/WY5e2vrLjNY
