    Get a coolant pressure test done and also a compression test done as well.

    Ditto - my MK4 was losing a litre every 3-4 weeks, turned out to have a teeny weeping hole in the radiator, it was only losing water under pressure hence I never saw anything below the car, it just wasn't losing enough to drip onto the road when at standstill.
