    Rocker cover gaskets are prone to leak on most Audi engines in my experience.

    Yeah my 1.8T rocker gasket shows signs of weeping most of the way round. Of course the corner above the exhaust is worst and every now and again a drip lands on the exhaust and there's a distinct whiff of burnt oil. Really need to get off my arse and change it.
