Oil Leak


Vehicle Information: Year: 2000; Engine (type, size, modifications): 2.7 Stock; Total Mileage: 48000; Transmission: Tiptronic;

I apologize for another question regarding oil leak. I have a 2000 Boxster with Tiptronic and 48,000 miles. Last week when I took the car in to Porsche Center for a routine oil change, the mechanic noticed a slight oil leak from what he mentioned as the "cam cover." The oil is not dripping to the floor but the oil was still visible. He also mentioned that they would take care of it in the future but it would cost around $700 ($100 parts, $600 labor). Does this estimate sound right? Should I get this repaired soon? What is the consequence if I wait? Thanks.
