OIL DRIP LEAK

Hello,

I am in no way a professional mechanic but I have repaired plenty of leaks and such on domestic cars. This is my first Foreign car I have owned and I noticed a oil drip on the driveway. This being new to me I am asking for some help. I cant seem to pinpoint this leak. I put the car on ramps and took a look. The oil pan seems good for now- I do some minor wear on it but the pan and the drain plug seem fine but I think the problem may be this area in the picture. These tubes may be the culprit but the whole area seems wet to me. Any ideas?
