i replaced both upper and lower oil pan gaskets in a 84 318i not sure if its the same.
from where its leaking can u see bolts or somthing thats holding the two peice together?

well it could be loose, try and see what happens. make sure not to over tighten it them becuase that might make it leak more.
i think the torque spec for oil pan is anywhere from 80-97 In-Lbs.
if that dosnt work it might be just an old gasket those arent to hard to change as long as nothing is in the way of the oil pan.
hope that helped.

im pretty sure the 325 has only one oil pan gasket, and thats what you need
