Question about Cars & Trucks
This job will cost you money no matter what you do. If the seals are as bad as you have been told then you are up for a timing belt as well as oil destroys them very quickly. You will have to remove the timing belt and cam gear to get the seal out. IF the cam seal has gone then the crank seal will not be far behind it. If you let it go then the belt will fail; and you will have a head job to pay for as well Get a workshop manual and a mechanic friend to help you save on the labour costs but you are stuck for the parts.

i dont know where you live
there are many independent repair shops out there that would do the job for alot less
here is one trick i have found that work very good.
go to a professional auto parts store like a carquest or a NAPA and ask the counter person who he would recomend a independent repair shop that is familar with the VW cars
dont give up you will find a great mechanic that will help.

it could also be the oil pan gasket, or the manifold gasket. if it's the manifold gasket, when you remove the manifold to replace it, take the time to clean out the mixing chamber. it'll be filled with gunk and cleaning will improve gas mileage.

Could be just the OIL COOLER. VW IS CORRECT.
If the oil cooloer fails internely you will have a mix of coolant and oil. In the engine and in the Radiator,
But not to say the other guys were wrong...
