    Default 2.8 turbo oil leak?

    Just bought a 2006 2.8 turbo Elite Vectra estate,
    to replace a 2008 2.8 turbo Elite Vectra hatch.

    Just put it on the ramp to change the engine oil and noticed oil leak on the nearside, very messy around driveshaft, steering rack, but also messy up as far as the bottom of the battery tray,
    Turbo looks clean,
    looks like engine oil
    not noticed any drips on tarmac.
    In one place the bottom of the shock it looks almost like "liquid grease"

    All fluid levels seem OK,
    Gearbox level check more tricky.

    Not done enough miles to see if engine oil level drops much.

    Any Ideas would be appreciated
