08 BMW 335 Rear Leak, Strut?

So tonight I walked out to my garage and it smelled like brake fluid. Walked around my car and spotted the below on the passenger rear of the car. Last picture is the driver rear. Is this from the struts? Is this a DYI job? Costs? Lastly do I go OEM or Im seeing SACHS

Pretty much you got it correct.. Diyable? yes with the right tools. The DIY section may have a guide too.

SACHS I believe is the supplier for BMW.. You might want to look into replacing all 4 as the others are most likely to follow. You should replace all bump stops and mounts if you do.
