I tried a picture, a bit fuzzy, but it is indeed leaking down the clutch shaft. On RealOEM they show an input and output clutch cylinder. Is that the master and slave?
Where is the slave cylinder on this car? (it's a 330Ci)

I can't tell by smell, my smeller isn't very good. The color is blue, as are my coolant and brake fluid. But, it's very blue, like my brake fluid. That's why I am thinking master or slave cylinder.

Looks like you may need a clutch master cylinder.

I have only seen this happen once in about 6 or 7 years. Its rare, but can happen.

You sir will soon need a radiator. Happened to mine a couple years ago. The plastic at the corner where the tube sticks out becomes weak and cracks. Might want to go ahead and replace it so it doesn't leave you stranded.
