Koni Sports leaking oil ?

My Front Koni Sports Yellows seem to be leaking oil at the top where you adjust the settings.

Everytime I go and adjust them with the turning knob I seem to get covered in oil that seems to be leaking from the top. Is this normal ? Shocks are still relatively new also. Doesnt look like a lot of oil but just enough to be seen seeping through at the top. Car performs as normal also.

Also can you adjust them to much ? - is that bad for them or should you just adjust and forget them.

Not normal

Fred, I have the same set up in my GTV. I don't however have the same problem so it's not normal. Do both front dampers do this?
