Default 2009 Jetta 2.0 T Oil leak issue

I just purchased a 2009 Jetta Wolfsberg 2.0T 6 sp manual. Almost too good to be true! perfect body, perfect interior, perfect ride!

I bought the car, drove it home (60 miles) and left it in my garage. It sat there for 3 days and didn't have a drop of oil on the floor. I took it to my shop to jack it up to get a full under body inspection. I noticed a drop of oil had dropped out. I took the Jetta home and let it sit in my garage for a few hours. When i came back there was about a quarter size of oil below the motor. I drove it the next day about 20 miles and parked it again. Again the next morning a quarter size of oil. Its been doing this every day now.

The PVC valve and tubes/ o ring where replaced withing 1000 miles. Intake was replaced within 1000 miles. This Jetta has 118,000 miles. Original turbo.

Any ideas on where this oil could be coming from? Maybe the turbo is starting to spray? the entire top half of the motor is spotless. Ideas?

First posts normally go in introductions else you could get a free fix and we never see you again!!!

Oil leaks are a problem, you need to find exactly where its coming from. Oil spreads so you need to clean everything off. Leave the plastic engine splash guard off until you have locked it.
