N20 528i Electrical Burning Smell from Engine

Hi everyone. Looking to gain some insight/help with a problem I've been having with my 2013 528i N20 engine. I have just passed 30k miles however recently, I've been smelling a strong chemical/electrical-like burning smell coming especially from the passenger side engine-bay area. I checked for oil or any other fluid leaks this evening however I can't seem to find anything leaking. There is no smoke, just that burning electrical smell from the engine after it's been running for a while. The only mod I have is a Remus exhaust. Of note is that my brake fluid is a little low, I'm wondering if anyone had ever heard of brake fluid leaking in f10s. I hope the gasket seals and the lines to the turbo are still okay since it has such low miles but I'm not sure at the moment (not receiving any messages on the computer). Any help or insight is appreciated, thanks y'all
