Intercooler leaking (?)

To some degree or another most Audi intercoolers IME leak (though
minimally).  Maybe your mechanic spotted some oil seepage by the end caps.
I also agree with Dave that it would be much better to pressurize the system
to check for leaks.  The main culprits tend to be the turbo>intercooler hose
or the IC>intake tube "Michelin Man" hose.
