    You have clearly stripped the thread for the sump plug mate and this will inevitably lead to it leaking especially when the oil gets a bit runnier when hot..

    The oil return/drain (not a feed pipe!) hole sits a little higher...

    New sump time dude... helicoils leak too (assuming you can get the plug out of course...)

    Pop down to screw fix and pick up one of those vacuum oil change kits.

    You can suck up the oil via the dipstick guide.

    Edit; But, as tuffty says, iit'll probably leak from the drain plug now anyway...

    If you ain't done your oil pick up lately I would change that or at least give it a clean while the sump is off, makes sense really

    You'll be fine dude there's plenty of guides on here and there is plenty of people you can ask question aswel. Plus you can always give people a ring if you have numbers.

    Do loads of research as well before you start.

    Shame I live so far away I'd be game for helping you out.

    Was good talking to you earlier dude.

    Paradox1 - trick is to start small and work your way up to bigger jobs. Just get all the info you can from the forum, make sure you have everything you need (including the time!) and go one step at a time. And if you're not 100% sure, don't start the job (unless you have access to another motor to use while you sort the S3 out of course).
