Hey Scotty i have a 2008 Audi S6 V10 and ever since the last oil change it leaks oil out of the drain plug, it has been tightened with a new seal to factory specs but it still leaks, should i just tighten it a little more? I am scared of stripping it because it it aluminum. Thanks.

I'd go ahead and bite the bullet and get a new drain plug and seal and hope it seals. Otherwise as guyonearth says, it may need an oversized self tapping drain plug installed.

It's probably already stripped. It may need to be retapped for a larger size plug.
