Oil Leak or something else?

Posting this for a friend of mine here in France with an M3 coupe. Curious as to whether the "stuff" on the cover is something (oil?) leaking from the top of the motor or maybe spatter from a messy oil change? This is a second owner car. It feels a bit oily, but then again the motor is pretty dirty (high mileage car parked outside until now). I looked at my engine and its clean there, but its also pretty clean as they go from being garaged and not too many kms.

If it is a leak, I'm guessing it would be more than a slight one because the plastic cover on the top is mostly there to make the motor look "neater" and not really to keep oil and such inside, right?
