Parking on a slope

The parking lot where I work is sloped. I tend to park in the same spot every day. Considering the engine oil system on an M96, is there a better side to have down-slope for a cold start? I think that on a daily basis, over years, it may matter.

Having had both a 2.7 and 3.2 apart I don't believe it makes a difference. Let the engine idle for a minute after stopping. That should let the scavenge pump drain the excess oil from the heads.
