08 335i oil leak by turbo W/ Pics... normal??

So i am in the process of diagnosing my Reduced power, Car has 26k miles Car runs completley fine except it always goes in to Reduces power mode, I am waiting on a jb4 in the mail so i can read codes meanwhile I went snooping under the hood to see if i could find anything out of the ordinary, Here is what I found:

This pics is from the top of the engine on the upper left corner, from above the turbo, you can see the pipe that goes down into the turbo, at the end of it it is all covered in oil/residue for about 7 inches of the pipe... i scraped a little off so you could see where i was talking about.

The next if from below the car / turbo

I never notice drips under the car, but it looks like a pretty good drip is building up, and im sure its not the first.

So is this something that would cause the limp mode i am having troubles with? I have searched for this problem for about an hour before posting this and couldnt find anything similar, there was one post that was leaking from the turbo inlet pipe because it kept popping out on his car, but they also said that it would still boost some, mine has absolutley no boost and immediatley goes into limp mode when i press the gas more than half way

Anyways Thanks for reading and i hope someone is familiar with this!
