oil leak

Anybody know where i can pick up a dye to either put into my crankcase oil or into my tranny (auto). The e30 has always had a small leak since i acquired it, and would like to get it resolved before i seal up my driveway. I have cleaned up the bottom end of the engine and the tranny, and since driving it a few 100 kms, the front end is dry but i see new oil stains coming from the back end of the motor and front end of the tranny. I dont seem to be low on engine oil so that leads me to think its coming from the tranny, but i would like to pin point it by using the dye method. Anybody know where i can buy this kit locally? thanks.
