Oil leak help!

I have a e99 that has developed a leak. It leaves a puddle within a matter of minutes. My starter and the passenger side rear corner of the oil pan are covered in oil. The exhaust down pipe has some oil on it. I pulled the inspection cover cause that's where it was dripping from but I didn't see much. Just a little on the inside center of the cover. Any help?

Start at the HPOP, check if it's leaking where it attaches to the resivoir then trace the two hoses for leaks at all ends. Then check the turbo pedistal and EBPV. These motors like to leak up top and drip down the back side through a drain hole.

No oil I could see in the valley. I was thinking that also. I will get a good light on it tonight.

It is totally dry around the dipstick area. I am leaning toward the HPX I just put in about 3 months ago. I am going to take it out hopefully tonight and and look at the o rings. It is the only place I could feel some wetness with oil. I hosed the valley out and will take it for a drive. I did watch the video link and torqued the oil pan it was about 4 ftlbs light on the back two on each side.

My guess is the o-ring where the dipstick goes in the oil pan. I had the same area with oil leaking (Almost 2 "gallons" of oil in 50 miles) I ordered the kit put it on and it still leaked a little. Loosened it added some more rtv and it hasn't leaked since. Be careful not to drop the adapter in the oil pan. And don't torque the outer nut too much.
