2005 SL500 fluid leak??

2005 SL500 arrived 1 week ago. Sat at dealer for 2 weeks before being picked up and delivered . Pre -inspection at an Independent showed to be in xlnt condition with no leaks. It is currently at an auto storage facility till Thursday when I can drive it home. They called today to say there were 2 small oil leaks, 1 about 1/2 cup and the other 1 cup. One leak dark colored and one light colored. Am going tomorrow to inspect but of course concerned as closest dealer is 3 hrs away. Inspection fac said that strapping it down on carrier might have forced fluid in hydraulic system for suspension up in resovoir to overflow. Has anyone had similar experience or thoughts?? Thx in advance!! FG

False alarm, the oil leaks were made by a Porsche that was in the same spot earlier. When they told me it was a Porsche I did chuckle though!
