After my drive, I examined the underside of the car, and this is what I found:

1. A very small line of oil on one of the longitudinal bosses at the bottom of the transaxle, likely dribbled down from above. I wiped it all, but could have missed this much after the trans top-up. I did notice a small gleam of oil peeking out of the fill plug threads.

2. Quite a bit of oil coming from the front of the engine (rear of car) dripping down from above. This oil travels to the lowest point of the engine case, then is swept back onto the muffler, which creates quite a stink and residue.

3. Quite a bit of oil on the front side of the black 90 degree air pipe coming out of the driver's side heat exchanger. Can't yet tell where this oil is coming from. Oil also on the turbo oil catch can which is right next to that air pipe.

I'll see if I can put a rag in the bellhousing as suggested by CFD
