If you pull over and stop on concrete, do you see any spots? I would be concerned about the gas supply or recovery/return line leaking in the location you are talking about. If it is a strong 'raw' fuel smell it isn't your exhaust system unless you are really getting terrible mileage and performance. My method is "stop, pop and sniff" ...if it is a gas leak you can 'localize' it with your nose and with your eyes. Do not play around with waiting if there is a chance that it is a fuel leak. I'd hate to hear another beautiful 325i has to be written off.
