Anybody got any ideas where this oil leak is coming from on my 05 mini cooper and is it something that will need to be fixed quickly. The leak is possibly coming from the left hand side engine mount. Hopefully the picture will solve everything.

According to a MINI assist tech I know it is a known and common problem (contrary to what the receptionist at my dealer tried to tell me!)
He says they have been nothing but a problem and he even carries new engine mounts on his car and can fit them if called out
It only becomes a problem if it starts to knock, as that could cause further damage to another part. But you'll be fine to leave it till it goes in for a service (as long as its still under warrenty then )
