That looks more like something got spilled on the turbos. The oil lines are not leaking. Try cleaning it off and see if it comes back.

yea thats an odd area. Did you recently have your oil changed? I agree with greasltn, clean it off and see if it returns

the first time i noticed it was right after an oil change but i don't remember it being that much. just got done cleaning most of it off and i kind of looks like it is coming from the small bolts on top the one on the drivers side had stuff running down the back side as well.

that bolts only purpose is to hold the heat shield on. Im sure the oil just seeped under it when the shield got hot.

I checked the bolts and they weren't very tight so I went ahead and tightened them a little. I'm assuming that since no one's told me to go to the dealer or to a mechanic that it's probably nothing serious????

If you clean the oil off and it comes back, the only thing I can think of would be cracked turbo housings and bad bearing seals in the turbos. I also think if this were the case, you would notice a running issue. So long story short, you shouldn't have anything to worry about.
