Valve cover gasket looks good, no oil on the plugs. i can see any oil residue anywhere else. I got to do a timing belt soon.. i dont want to get it apart to find that i need a cam seal or something. Where do these things leak
They actually are not that prone to leaking oil but when they do it is the typical culprits: seals, gaskets and so on. The oil cooler and oil pan can leak small amounts as well.
If you have existing oil spots on the floor then try putting down a big piece of cardboard and parking only the Audi on it. If you have stains on the cardboard then you'll know.
