1999 996 oil filler tube, RMS leak


Vehicle Information: Year: 1999; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 53000;

I recently purchased a '99 996 w/ 50,000 mi. After 6 years with a BMW, this car is fantastic. Porsche service informed of a leaky oil filler tube at the block. The part is $35 but it's $500 to install it. Guess they have to remove the intake manifold. Can it wait till the 60,000 mi service or is it urgent? Also, whats the odds of the main seal holding up?
