fix oil leak for mcs 2008 r56

I have a oil leak and the garage told me:
there is a significant oil leak which is dripping on to the exhaust and causing the burning smell and smoke to appear from the bonnet area. To rectify this leak, we need to replace the oil filter housing gaskets and associated seals and the hose from the engine to the turbo and its associated gaskets.
Still dont know what is leaking exactly but anyway, does anyone have any experience with this kind of job? I am near parramatta.
