Help finding source of oil leak

I have a 12 650 convertible, there was a tablespoon of oil found on the garage floor the other day that 2 separate technicians cannot find the source of. It's not the rear main seal or timing chain cover , the plastic shrouds dont appear to have any oil collecting under them either. Yet, the oil was on the floor.
Is there any hoses that could have puked out a bit of oil somehow ? Happy to see the rest of the car isnt leaking considering the problems the car is known for. Thanks

The best way is to understand the cars orientation, ie where the various components sit over the area on the floor, so if you can position it it will help. Also check the type of oil, engine, transmission, or steering etc.

Always said I would go back to a 6 series
