When I did take it back to the dealer they said it was due to a faulty seal on the oil filter. In other words, the seal was not properly adhered to the filter itself. They were very apologetic , changed the oil, reimbursed me for the oil I added and gave me the next oil change for free.
Yup, and before getting upset, I made sure that 1. the oil filter was not defective - since that would be BMW's fault not SCS and 2. that tightening it fixed the issue - which my father in law confirmed.
