There is something in this but you are prob wasting your time as I bet it doesn't poke upmorw than 5mm which is acceptable and you'll be on a hiding to nothing.

Indeed. Whilst I was sitting there I saw about 20 more cars take it exactly how I did and not do any damage to their car, I doubt I'd have much of a leg to stand on.

lol yes. Difference is busting your sump is standard but destroying your subframe on a man hole cover is intense.

So I guess what I'm saying is:

I m naged to rush home from work today to utilise the final 20 minutes of day light. After getting the car up on axle stands I had a good look around and there's good and bad news. The good news is the steering rack seems to be fine, the gator's come loose which from the side made it look like I had pulled the entire rack out out of line. The bad news is that it has indeed bent the chassis mount but It may be fixable, I'm going to see what the mighty VW guru thinks (aka Guy).

Max, looks like the chassis got pulled a little but the sub frame having already been roughed up seems to have folded nicely.
It all looks easy enough, have welder and grinder it WILL go again with appropriate mods to subframe as discussed.
Get the new one here asap and I'll strengthen it up before fitting and get it done asap.
Your tea making skills are about to improve ten fold. excited

Just seen this in person. Most impressive! Guy would you have a socket for my dads audi gearbox drain plug. Like a massive torx bit with a dimple in the middle.

The one I'm bidding on on Ebay ends in four hours so hopefully I should have one on the way soon Thumbs up

For the record I have savage tea making skills, everyone in my office drinks about four cups a day so it's mandatory to have skills Laughing

Did you just admit to being the office tea b***h ?

yes i'm sure you did Max.

Did you win it ?

Did you want to send it here rather than have to bring it over ?

Well I got a bit of an Ebay bargain this weekend. Got an entire suspension setup (hubs, disks, bottom arms, arb and subframe) for 50. Very Happy

This will be delivered straight to Guy for him to get on with the agreed welding which will provide it with much more strength this time around
