I've replaced all 3 items since I got my Car ~ 4 yrs ago...
(Orange rubber seal at oil cooler, CV boot/ shaft, valve cover gasket)
With my luck the oil drain hose on the turbo will go next.. At least I already have the new hose. The guy at the dealer says to me when I bought the hose.... "Those never go bad..."
