That one nice garage you have there!! :-)
Looking at the pic of the fluid it looks to thin for oil?? More watery? Is it defiantly oil?
Hard to say where it is coming from, I had a similar leak and turned out to be nothing more the rain water trapped in the car, then when I drive off it was like it was peeing out water and it was my wife that spotted it. What about maybe something todo with the air con?
A tip I was given on this forum a few years ago to trace down a coolant leak was at night take the car for a blast and get it hot, then in the dark pop the bonnet and shine a touch light over the pipes and you will find the leak even if it's a small hole, it will show up steam under the light were the leak is.
If it oil, most common places on the v6, oil cooler and pipes, sump and sump plug, rocket cover, not sure about the v6 but the crankcase seal was a common one on the ts.
Saying that far right on the engine, closer to coolant tank but also the clutch slave ontop of the gearbox and running down
