What rims are you running? Overtime on some wheels, the rim bead corrodes or rusts (depending on wheel) and you get a leak between the tire and rim. Since you have no visible punctures, i'd say you're getting bead leaks.

Not sure how old they are but the wheels are in pretty good condition. I caught it right away on the last wheel, aired it back up and it's been fine since. Just need to get thru winter so I can get some good wheels/tires back on it lol

Straight from ECS, there's a few different kits you can order and tons of color combinations. Around 180 shipped.

In the last week or so I finally got around to doing the timing belt on the gti and rechecked my timing with a light in accordance with the Bentley. In the process I also had to change out the belt covers because they were cracked pretty bad and the crank pulley since I bent the other one getting it off because it was so seized. Also did new power steering and alternator belts, found a hose to run off the little manifold duct to the air box for the preheat and a new o-ring for the idle screw to try and settle a slightly bouncey idle but didn't help.

Oil cooler leak is super common. Just replace the O-ring between your oil cooler and the oil filter flange, and you're golden.
