Oily Boots. Replace?

I've noticed that the coupler boots on either side of my intercooler are oily on the outside. Is this a sign that they are leaking and need to be replaced, or is this normal?

thats normal... you just need to do a CCV mod to re rout the oil somewhere else.... once you do that you can take off the boots and clean them or replace them with something better... Bob at Dieselsite sells some nice replacement boots

Just remember to use a little hairspray on the tubes when you replace the boots, or remove them for cleaning. They will hold better.
