help me find my oil leak 😊

The left side is the left side. When looking toward the back YOUR right side is still the CAR'S LEFT SIDE.

So you are saying the leak is on the LEFT side of the engine? (Or to use the nautical term PORT side)

Do you know it's engine oil? The power steering is notorious for slow leaking on the LEFT side of the motor. Either way same method to find the leak. Clean well, cover with something clean and find the spray pattern.

M62 on the sedans has a remote oil filter in the front left corner of the engine bay plenty of good spots to develop a leak. Does the e53 also have this arrangement? I know some 8 cylinder have the filter on the bottom. I did a little work on E53 with N62 but don't recall where the filter was
E53 / M54 2001 3.0i gas LHD (pair of them: his & her)
