Question Major oil leak

I have a 1992 325i, love this car to death, but has given me a few problems since I've had it. So I just noticed this. The linkage between my clutch pedal and plunger just straight sheered in half. So needless to say I was unable to drive it for a while until the new part came in. I pushed it out of my garage and noticed quite a bit of oil on the floor. I checked the oil and there is hardly any left in it. So what could be so bad that with it just sitting there, I loose almost all of my oil? I really like this car and would hate to have to get rid of it b/c of this. But there is also an electrical problem for the tail lights. Rear fog lights work, but no brake lights. So with the 2 of these problems I have no idea what it could be. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

With the oil leak, you have to get under there and see where the oil is leaking from........make sure the oil pan drain plug is tight.

Brake lights, 1st, thing check the fuses, 2nd , check wiring that goes through the trunk lid on the drivers side. See link below:
