Is my oil pan/sump leaking?

Every time I come on this site you all seem to have issues with 3.0 and above you don’t get many 2.0 guys on here with issues. I don’t have any issues with mine. I am the proud owner of a 07 face lift Z4 :driving: :thumbsup: my everyday drive. I will now remove myself from this site. Sorry you have an oil leak.

must just be the si engines that pool around the cap as that looks very different to my oil filter area, as patriot says have a look further down, if its still dry down around the housing gasket area its almost certainly going to be the sump gasket
if its got tits or tyres..its trouble :D
