yea especially on xdrive cars but iv dropped the subframe for my dp install and its like 15 mins
Rule of thumb, start from the top. Did you roll the gasket accidentally? Check with a mirror. First gasket I would do is the oil filter housing. When it leaks it leaks onto the lip of the oil pan gasket and goes everywhere.
