Oil leak help

Hey guys

So I was checking something else under the car an saw this and I can't really pin point where it's coming from but any ideas are appreciated. Pics were taken front the front of the car.

Car is a 2007 335i auto.

Garage List
looks like their is a bold missing, you might wanna start by cleaning the oil up and replacing the bolt!

Had the same issue mine ended being the oil filter housing gasket. I replaced both and leak is gone. May sound crazy how a leak from the front of the motor ends up there. Looks to see if u have oil residue running around the cam sensors.

Which one? The one that seems like it goes sideways compared to the other ones? Wtf how did it just back out? I'll have to check!
And also I think I posted in the wrong section it's an n54 not n55

I did check the front but there's no leak. There was one there once and it got fixed.

Could this be an oil pan leak?
