Judging from the color of the fluid, I would guess it is ATF (Automatic Transmission Fluid).
Most likely it is the oil pan seal of the transmission that is leaking.

If you can, drive the front of the car up on a pair of ramps so you can access the underside better. Wipe off all oil you can see (it might also help if you remove the protection cover for the converter), and then check it again after a while. With everything (relatively) clean, it will be a lot easier to spot where the actual leak is. Depending on the size of the leak this might take a few days, though.

But, as mentioned in the beginning, I would suspect that it is the oil pan seal that's leaking.
Have you checked the ATF level in the transmission recently? Does it seem to loose oil?

Just curious: have you managed to find where the leak is yet?

Oil leak

Do you have a proper plate type LSD or just the sport Torsen diff? Torsen differentials do not need any special LSD oil.

Hi,
For the purpose of comparison, if I need to superimpose the view of a struct. bulk config. on the STEM image ..., then how will it be possible? ....Can I make the background transparent ?
