Weird oil leak

Car: 1993 500 SEL (140 chassis) - yes this is the third posting.

For the past 3 oil changes, 5,000 miles each, I have not added oil.

Well, this week I added oil - down 1 quart.

It is leaking, up near the passenger front wheel, far front, near the bumper.

For the cost of a quart of oil, I have not looked much - but what could be up that far in the front on the passenger side?
Thanks for the help
