It looks like my radiator is leaking somewere from pass side by the alternator but I can't see where because there is plastic cover it from the electric fan (both rubber hose is fine and dry).

Main Question is: Is there ANY plastic hose connected to the Radiator (Im asking because audi engineers so f..ing advanced that made Heater core pipes from plastic(which is split and leaking coolant also), even my old camaro '86 has aluminum pipes which last for ever)

I see you are TIP, maybe its your tranny fluid if the coolant pipes are fine.

Common problem is seeping at the end tanks. Sometimes it is difficult to see until the rad is completely out of the car, or at least the condenser is removed. My brother found out his was leaking when we pulled his engine. Bam, $200 more dollars to finish the job.
