Question about 1988 Volkswagen Cabriolet
Sounds like the garage either installed a filter with a faulty gasket or the oil filter is not tightened, or there is trash under the oil filter gasket.
I'd remove the oil filter, clean gasket seat on block, clean oil filter gasket, check gasket for nicks/defects, reinstall oil filter if gasket is good, hand tighten (but tight as you can get it) and try again.
