I've been seeing some oil in the undercover panels. Looks like it may be from the valve cover. Replaced it today.
So this is what my valve train looks like with 128K miles on it.

How ever you are taking care of this car, keep it up . This looks beautifully clean.

Thanks. There was nothing but a film of oil on the underside of the valve cover as well. Oil changes were at no more than about 5K miles. Started off using name brand synthetic oils but switched to Super Tech synthetic several years ago. Oil filters have been Bosch (preferred), K&N (although I notice more rattle on startup with K&N) and Mobil (when Bosch is not available).
