Maybe a moot point if you dont think its that.

Gently twist it, it will come out only friction holding it in. The fact it is tight again suggests it's not the tube.
Here is a picture of the end of the tube not the best picture but best I have on my phone

Ah , I see.

I have nipped it back up again. Its not quite a puddle of oil , but it certainly was enought for me to say thats not right.

I have cleaned up the sump and as much as I can around it. Ill have to warm it up as suggested and get it in the air to take a look.

Any common areas?

Check this breather to cam cover, running the engine might not be enough may need a run out on the road.

It’s so good to see such lively action on exiges.com although I sympathise with your frustration over the oily leak. Great how so many people can chip in with helpful comments.

100% agree @thommo

Its really useful to have people offer advice and expertise. Lee even said Whatsapp me.

Truly awesome. Ill get his fixed one way or another, or go down in history as the lotus exige that resembled the exxon valdez.
