Default Help with figuring out this weird oil spilling issue? Bay Area

Hey all, I have 3 BMWs - do my own wrenching, one of them is an e30 with S50 swapped in.

I have a 1996 318ti that leaks about a quart of oil per tank of gas. Oil is all over the undercarriage and burns throughout the exhaust piping. I have looked under the car to find where the leak is coming from and it looks like oil pan gasket rather than oil filter gasket (even though I know the oil filter gasket leak is misleading).

Can someone help me with diagnosing this issue? Also, the accel pedal has this weird vibration over 3500rpm. I think this has to do somehow with this weird leak, but maybe it is something else. Can anyone who knows this engine help me out or drive this car to check it out?
