a quick question does your car happen to have a turbo installed? they often leak when they start to fail during operation. that or if they been sucking in oil from the engine. other wise the most often other place for oil leaks is the head covers and the vacuum pump. I would take it to a shop that specializes in audi's and Volkswagons if you have a shop replace it tho.
