I'm a new owner (today) of '93 325is w/auto, 113k mi. (Please be gentle...I'm new here too!) The Rear seal evidently has a VERY slow leak...1 drop every 24 hours or so. Do I worry?....and how do I fix it when ready.

I got that too. Mine looks like it's actually coming from my tranny drain plug. But your's is auto and mine is a manual. Good luck with fixing it, and

That is a small enough leak you shouldn't have to become concerned about right now. Some JB weld might solve the problem, unless it is coming out of the seam. That means the gasket is gone in that spot and will need to be replaced sooner than later,
