2.0 JTS oil leak - help required please ?!!!

Bought another "156" 3wks ago - 2.o JTS engine and now it has sprung some kind of minor oil leak.

Took it to my Independant Alfa service team and they stripped the covers off and found engine oil had be spilt when the oil change had been done prior to my purchase. All this was washed down and then they left the engine to run on the ramp for way over an hour and no sign of oil could be found running from anywhere.

However today - just done a short run and returned home , popped the car into my garage and 30mins later a dropplet of oil has dripped into the tray i placed underneath.

The engine is full of oil and the d/stick is checked daily - so the engine isn't leaking or using much if any oil at all.

Anyone else had or got this issue with a similar engine ?

My Indie guys said they know its a pain - but if its only dropping x1 droplet after a run and the oil level isn't decreasing rapidly then it might be something i have to live with ?!!!
All seals were inspected and no sign of any leaking - aaaaaaaaaaaaargggh.

Suggestions welcome please guys ?!!!

One droplet might have just been residue building up from previously leaking. Try tracing it if you can get in underneath.
