    Coolant from the heater valve or core. Do a search. BMW had a recall in the early 90's for this very problem.

      Should be the culprit. Do a search as others have had this problem.

          Spray paint and tire shine doesn't equate to a "restoration!"

              If you can afford to not drive the vehicle:
              Do a visual inspection of the heater core area (like gabor's post). If you can't find exactly where the leak is coming from, then take it apart. It could be an old O-ring, bad water valve, bad heater core, worn-out alu-pipes?

              Whatever the issue is, replace the O-rings at the same time.

              Make sure you select the right year when you are looking up parts here:

              I believe that there are different pipes for different years of production.
