Exclamation N52 Oil Filter Housing LEAK - REPLACED Gasket and still leak?!

Hi guys,

Over the weekend I replaced my Oil Filter Housing Gasket (DIY) as per BMW saying I had a leak. I bought the gasket online installed it Friday. HOWEVER, I still have a leak!?
Below is a picture of where the oil is pooling up. If it's not the housing gasket, what could be the cause? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

well i plan to get this going as well, in the meantime i was waiting for your results. but i checked on BMW Parts and BMW Accessories | Bavarian Autosport for the gaskets, there were two types (see below).

Gasket - Oil Filter Housing To Engine Block
1.

Gasket - Oil Filter Housing to Oil Cooler
2.

Which of the two did you do? or both?

How about these replacement gaskets?
Gasket Ring - For Oil Level Sensor



Gasket Ring - Oil Filler Cap - Located Between Valve Cover And Plastic Coil Cover
