Hello I have a Volkswagen Touareg 2008 V8 4.2 and I have try to get an alternator. I had purchased two on O’Reilly but one them was leaking the antifreeze and the other one didn’t match. Anybody have an idea where I can get an alternator??

Look for a part number on the housing of the original alternator, and do a search on exactly for that (including also any suffix letters after the numbers, if there are any). If aftermarket suppliers are providing a product that's a drop-in replacements for the original, they'll note that in their datasheets and catalog. And if they aren't any available, you can order a new one by part number from VW - but that will cost you then.

Have you asked around to see if anyone locally can recondition your existing alternator for you?

Did a quick search, the link below is what I found. Hope it helps. Also Google the part# in the link and see if you can find it cheaper elsewhere.
