I just had this fixed, could be the oil filter housing gasket, is it making a little puddle right next to the cap? Look behind it towards the front of the car, you may be able to se it coming up from the seal. Its a $13 part if you think you want to try it yourself. It seems to leak more on a cold start when the car is at idle.

Typically the cap-to-filter-body leak is caused by either not positioning the 'O' ring in the groove correctly, or not lubricating the 'O' ring before screwing the cap on.

I would say definately check the O-ring on the top of the housing.

Some workshops dont replace these on filter changes and they can get damaged then causing a leak.

The genuine BMW filters do come with new seals usually but if they have fitted a non genuine filter them they might not have had a new one supplied to fit.

Is there a way to confirm if the oil Filter gasket has been replaced? What should I look for?

Is it necessary to change both housing gaskets? From what I can see the only one that's leaking is the front one (closest to the radiator). Also my dealer wants $40 for both gaskets is there a better place to buy these?
