    Looks compatible to me. Not OEM tho, not surre if it comes reay to fit or if you'll need to buy adapters to screw in first, or even new crush washers

    Could you be more specific? never heard of an oil feed pipe itself leaking but have seen them leak from the banjo joints which is fixed with new washers that cost pence..

    I would also be looking at the cam cover gasket as this is a common leak point and due to the proximity could be mistaken for a leak from the turbo...

    Should be noted that the oil feed runs very high pressure so a leak from there could well plaster oil just about everywhere...

    They leak all the time... that pipe you linked to is the wrong bit...

    ...and its a dealer only part dude...

    Check where its leaking from... they leak from the turbo gasket (pence), the gasket on the sump (pence) and the flexi (complete new pipe required)

    Use OEM gaskets (metal) as paper or others are rubbish and will just start leaking again

    Its definitely an oil drain... just call any dealer local to you quote your chassis number and you want the oil drain pipe (the one from the turbo to the sump) and they will sort it...

    Its a dealer only part so you have no choice really but like I said its the gaskets that leak normally (fairly common) unless its been off for a turbo or sump swap and they have kinked the pipe

    I would get clarification of the leak point before committing to buying a part you don't need..

    ...but its definitely the oil drain :)

    Not had to do one on the car before but there is a bracket and transfer box in the way that makes things interesting...

    The drain is held on with 2 cap screws on each end... access to the turbo end is hindered by the above so its a bugger of a job on an S3...

    Depends on his definition of 'fiddle' I guess but its definately tight under there

    That thing wrapped in a towel... its the oil drain... its not connected at the top its connected at the bottom of the turbo...

    The oil feed pipe comes from the front of the engine, round the gearbox side of the engine to the top of the turbo.. the oil drain comes from the bottom of the turbo and connects to the sump... so the oil can drain into it :)

    Here is a pic of an oil drain...

    The oil drain is quite a lot larger than the feed pipe, Id imagine it being a similar price to the OE feed
