Hey guys, A few months ago all the seals were changed on my 98 gti. Recently I'm leaving puddles of oil on the ground. The engine oil is new. The oil on the ground drips from the bell housing and is very black and smells a bit like gear oil. On the end of the gearbox has droplets of what looks and smells like engine oil. Will take the car to a mechanic soon. Any thoughts on what/where (specifically) may be leaking?

You may have 2 separate leak issues. Try cleaning off both the bell housing and end of the gearbox, and then see whether you still have engine oil or gear oil leakage overnight.
