Oil Leak Passenger Side

My X5d just started leaking oil on the front passenger side, very close to the wheel.

I haven't had a chance to pulled the underside and figure out where it's coming from, but generally from that location where do you think the leak may be from? It's currently a very slow leak, about 1 oz over 8 hours

Maybe oil cooler lines?

You might get more hits in the General X5 Forum.

I had this same symptom, but found out it could be multiple issues. At first I was suggested it could be the vacuum pump or valve cover, but once they got in there it was my oil pan gasket, upper and lower. If the latter, I was given good advice to make sure the shop primes before running the engine. GL
