Pink Fluid Leak

Hi

I've notice a leak underneath my 2000 328i on the garage floor every morning. It's a pinkish oily texture; I've checked both the oil and transmission fluid and they are both full. Also, the windsheild washer fluid is full as well. Any ideas?

Check the power steering lines (hoses)
Make sure all the clamps are tight and not cracked

Depending on the position under the car I'd say its likely to be as 1BADBMR suggested power steering or auto transmission fluid, maybe brake fluid, but unlikely. Hydraulic fluid is really good a spreading out, so it may not be as much fluid as it looks like.
