my m3 started to leak oil a week ago. everytime i park the car on a new spot and came back seeing a small puddle of oil under the front bumper (???). i opened the hood to check yet i did not see any leak at all. so do you guys have any idea where does the leak come from? where do the e30m3s usually have oil leak? by the way, my m3 has 157k miles on it<br>i am suspecting that it's probably the oil pan gasket but i am not sure<br>any insight on the problem will be greatly appreciated.<br>nathan<br>88m3
