Not sure if it could be a problem on Q3's but the intercooler end caps are plastic and crimped onto the alloy cooler core.
On some Audi models the joint splits and results in a boost leak under higher engine loads. Close inspection often shows the rubber sealing gasket bulging out from the joint along the crimp line.
