    YES.It's being deposited via the crank case breather/ventilation system.If you want to avoid it have a look at winnie's post."DIY oil catch tank" in the How2 section.This will explain how and why it's happening. FELIXX.

    Quite normal with a lot of modern cars due to manufactures not being allowed to let engines breath to atmos.
