Oil leak when parking uphill

Hello,
I've got a 2007 335i and have an oil leak whenever I park uphill. It is indeed oil and not trans, confirmed by taste, jk color.

Anyone had this problem and what was the fix?

Thanks,
John

You may just have a oil leak, and the oil only escapes to the ground while parking uphill. Your underside of your car has a pan which may be catching the oil as it leaks normally and spilling out when you park.

Suggested to add in a UV dye, uv flashlight, and glasses. Let it run and see where the leak is coming from.
