Clear oil leak

Hi all

I have a 2007 X5 E70 3.0d (Australian version) with 75,000km on the odometer, I noticed a puddle of oil spot when I pulled out the driveway this morning. I thought it was a motor oil leak. But this one is clear oil. I can't figure out where it was coming from. The leak is coming from somewhere just underneath the front passenger seats (RHS).

Given the oil is clear, I'm thinking the transmission pan/mechatronics sleeve is leaking...What do you think guys?

Any help is appreciated.

'07 X5 3.0d - Black Sapphire Metallic / Camel interior
Specs: Sport pack, Executive, 7 Seats, OEM 336, Hifi
Mods: Aero Kits, Titanium grilles, 4.8i exhaust, Tinted, ///M Footrest, OEM Sport pedals, OEM Rubber mats, OEM Sunshades, LCI Taillights
