    You need to take a look where its actually dripping from... could be that the sump plug isnt ight, or its knackered.

    Could be loads of things. Camshaft seal, crankshaft seal, sump plug, cracked sump, loose silicon seal, loose/broken turbo oil pipe.

    Personally I'd get the place you bought it from to take a look at it.
