my car was doing the exact same thing and i spent about 18 hrs total trying to figure out. if you remove the oil filter, you will notice that the "bracket" that the oil filter attaches to is removable. remove the ENTIRE oil filter assembly. there is a bolt almost behind the crank pulley, its tricky to get to but you can get to it with a 1/4 in drive, swivel, and extension, i do believe it was a 10-12 mm socket (MUST BE ^POINT SHORT WELL) the top left bolt on the assembly you will notice that you can not get out. that is fine, take the rest of the bolts out and let the assembly hang from that bolt, BUT the bolt must me loosend all of the way to achive play in it. take a small screw driver and "break" the seal on the assembly. you will notice 2 holes. around those two holes is a single gasket. even the smallest crack will aloow oil to drip. my car was using about a gallon of oil every ten miles, so you can imagine how much oil i when through, replace the gasket. You can not get the rubber gasket ANYWHERE except a honda dealer. replace. put it together and you all set.
BASIC STEPS: RAISE PASSENGER SIDE.
REMOVE OIL FILTER
AND REPEAT BACKWARDS FOR INSTALLATION

Probably the oil cooler seal. This large o-ring is located between the oil cooler and the block adapter. After removing the oil filter, you will see a single nut on the threaded portion of the pipe that the filter screws onto. Removing this nut will allow you to remove the oil cooler. You may want to disconnect the coolant lines from the oil cooler (makes the job a little easier), but be sure to plug the lines as you remove them so you don't loose coolant. The o-ring will be on the top side of the oil cooler. A new o-ring will cost you $3 to $9, depending on where you get it. For a VW repair . . . this one is cheap and pretty easy to do. The parts diagram below may help. The seal is part #19.
