    Took my car into Audi on Friday to have the DSG oil and filter changed as well as the fuel filter.

    When I went to collect that have added an 'advisory' note on the invoice saying that my front intercooler seals are leaking. The service advisor said that it has been labelled as an advisory rather than urgent attention. They have quoted £91 to sort this out.

    So... how should I treat this?

    Is it important to sort out immediately? Can I do any harm if I ignore it for a while?
    And what kind of price should I be looking at elsewhere?

    Thanks

    hi, most a3,s leak at the intercooler pipe couplings. Its a **** design. You can replace the seals but wouldnt be a permanent cure. leaking pipes dont really cause any problems
