Can you please give me hints where should I check, the engine oil is leaking
profusely from the bottom of the car. The engine and transmission works very
nice. I am not driving it now as I know the oil level is lowest.

Thanks, I will check and post an update.

Thanks to my luck, it was just a broken oil hose going to engine from cooler.

132$ for a pair of hose. Those are super expensive!!
