2005 BMW 325i Question: Oil leak

I have a small oil leak. Took it in to get an oil change and they told me I had an oil leak. They said they put some dye in it and to bring it back in 100 miles. I am scared to go back. It is still dripping. -

The dye is fluorescent under ultraviolet light and can be used to pinpoint the leak. If you don't want to go back to the oil change place, find a Beemer specialist. He'lll have a UV light and can check but don't wait too long or there won't be good evidence, the dye will have spread out too much.
