    I unfortunately do not have a belly pan, one of the thing missing when i purchased the car, so it wont be an issue when i take the picture. I got to find one.

    Look up for the wet part. Should be relatively easy to spot if there is only a few drops on the floor.
    '02 S6 Avant Silver - Pokey | Carbon Black/Ebony RS6 w/ stuff - darn quick | '03 Daytona Grey/Ebony RS6 w/ more stuff - quicker yet | '91 NSX CDN issue with 6spd & BBSC - quicker yet and then some | '87 Buick GNX OEM clone w/ lots of stuff - quickest hands down

    Very excited to hear where it's leaking from. Just noticed a oil leak from the rear of my engine. Too frustrated to look any further into it at this moment. Also I believe the oil cooler pipe has failed. Fml

    Oh wow, not good. I will update mine as soon as i have any kind of time on it. I was suppose to do it Sunday, but was not able to do so. Keep me updated if you figure out your leaks as well.

    It took me a while but i finally got to take the car somewhat apart and got to take some pictures. By doing that, i think i found the leak, from the driver side valve cover gasket, front lower corner and perhaps the back of the same valve cover gasket as well. I posted some pictures. There is also oil that is dropping on top of the intercooler hose on that side (that is why i am suspecting the back of the valve cover gasket as well), which makes me wonder if the intercooler is also going bad and some of the oil is actually coming for the intercooler itself? What do you guys think? The passenger side intercooler is dry, just FYI. Either way, it looks like i will have to get a new hose, it is soft and not in the best shape at all.
