Probably only a temporary fix unless you determine and repair the reason for the leak.
Best case, it's a bad hose, worst case, you need a new condenser.
I took it to an indy non-BMW service place. It turned out that the AC compressor is leaking at the front seal (the aux fan works and the compressor runs). They told me that the cost of replacing the compressor is around $771.25 plus labor (about $1000 total). Thoughts?

It was low on refrigerant/R134a. They charged it for $175.
