Your 540i has the FILLER plug on the drivers side (instead of the passenger side as for 528i):

Now drive the car normally and check oil levels (engine oil + man trans oil) at 300-500 miles interval. If one goes down then you know the source of the leak.
On my 540i the filler plug is on the passenger side of the tranny pan.
