Does anyone have a problem w/lubricant drippings that leak from the hood onto the front fascia of their car?

The other day I saw a long drip by the grill and thought someone :yikes: spilled something onto my car. However, yesterday, I noticed more of the same.

I popped the hood, checked around the top and felt lubricant. Just took delivery on the car about two weeks ago...and we just started to get hit w/warm weather.

Tomorrow, it goes to the dealership for a few days because it came from a dealer trade w/a paint chip :cry:...but I do not want them to have any excuse to keep it longer if someone else has experience w/this problem.

That lube on brand new car could be cosmoline, some sort of wax BMW uses during shipping (I guess to protect against nasty sea water in the ship).
I read it before on other forums.
