I have a 2012 X5d with 125K on it every thing is fine but I have discovered an oil leak. I been racking up miles fast lately. got an oil change less then 3 month ago at my Indy everything was fine no leaks no issues. 20 days ago I added 1 litter of oil kind of thought its OK because I was approaching 6K miles from my previous oil change.

Now car wants more oil and its ODD. took a closer look on a passenger side "mid block" close to the front of the engine everything is wet and some dripped on an axle.

Did anyone came across this problem?

thanks

Have you checked your CCV flex hose? These commonly split & can cause oil to get on the intake hose from the turbos to the intercooler; however, this shouldn't be causing high oil consumption...

Other things to look at are the small turbo oil lines, as this is the area they are located... If so, better replace them quick...
