After 7000 miles my worst fears have come true - my cars stuck in the shop.

Pretty quick drip of oil when the engine is warm, dealer has no idea where it's coming from yet.

I've heard oil leaks are a common issue - anyone have some wisdom for me?

Where is the drip seen ? Front / back / front or rear left side / front or rear right side ?

A little further forward than the front tire, right-center

Hopefully your oil filter wasn't put on loosely. That would be the most general issue I would imagine a newer car like yours to have. Please keep us updated on what the cause of the problem is.

Oil sensor boss is another common location of oil seepage on the S550 (all platforms).

Update: It's the transmission cooler. Car will be in the shop another week at least. No loaner either which really sucks - rental for this period is running into the thousands.

Edit: they are replacing the entire cooler which has a week lead time

What? The least they could do is loan you a car come on.
