Pan gasket oil leak.

I guess I have an oil leak coming from my pan gasket... Does anyone know how much that will be to fix?

I'm guessing if the oil is leaking from the rim of the oil pan. If it's leaking at the drain plug, you probably need a new rush washer that goes over the drain plug at every oil change. What did the BMW dealership say it was??

Parts and LABOR.

You have to drop the front cross member to remove the pan.

You can DIY, but some special tools will help, like a topside engine support.
