Is the oil on the ground or is it just showing low on the dip stick?

the oil is sitting on the bottom of the plastic cover not on the ground. This model car doesnt have a Dip stick its a sensor.

Possibly from the Oil filter housing gasket or valve cover. Find a BMW specific/import garage. Or you can get the car on ramps and remove the belly pan yourself so you can inspect it yourself.

I have a feeling its option number 1 on this video clip as it tells me the direction of oil leak (Cover gas Kit) the oil leak is very slow and spreads out. link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ymcxmBg911s
