Hi,

I discussed similar issue on my 2004 X3 2.5i in another thread.
Looks like minor RMS leak.

No big deal as it is a SLOW leak most of the time.

Massive oil leak on passenger side:

I just did an experiment using water, see the update in this thread.
Now, you can see that an OFH Gasket leak will allow oil to pool at that infamous bolt...
