It sounds like the dreaded weep hole leak which is far worse. Search weep hole. You are very lucky to be in LA. All German Auto (methinks in LA County) has a fix that is superior to the flawed factory design and way less money than the dealer (less than $2K vs $10K from the dealer). Search All German Auto. is an AGA youtube link.

I thought the coolant pipe was no longer an issue in the 06-08 models

+1? Because I'm fairly certain of this also, as that link for the video is particularly for the 02-04 models. I found it when I was looking around for my previous coolant leak(I have an '02).

I'd say get some fluorescent coolant marker and let it run through the system if you want to pinpoint it yourself, but I've personally never done it on a closed radiator system or my current vehicle so I am unsure as to if it's safe to do that or not.
