If it is not the suggested gasket that is leaking then it is the oil pressure switch located exactly above the oil filter adapter. The black plastic housing could have developed a crack and oil will ooze downward and drip off the bottom of the adapter. I had this problem and changing the oil pressure switch took care of it.

It's not easy to get at. There is a gasket in there. I've done a few of these. It's called an oil filter adapter gasket.

It is very hard to turn, but it will come loose, a cut off allen wrench attached to a pipe works great, as there is no clearance to do it any other way. Have at it cause the allen bolt is pretty hefty.

No oil leak is common but they do happen. If you want to get serious buy a can of engine cleaner and spray that side and follow the directions on the can. Maybe he will allow this maybe he won't. Also take your finger and rub it inside of the exhaust pipe in the rear. if your finger comes out black there is oil burning going on. If nice and dry and it looks greyish inside then thats a good thing..
If the block by the oil filter is not cracked then you can replace a gasket. It may just be the oil filter need tightened or replaced too. let me know how it turns out. Don't forget the thumbs up for me, Raz
