    my gearbox mount (with pics)

    Hello guys yesterday i hit a bump in the road (i really enjoy paying road tax on all my cars) and since then my car was un driveable banging when changing gear even very softly, and the car was vibrating very very bad, so i thought here we go , i put the car up on the ramp and noticed the the propshaft was touching the subframe and scraping (vibration), at first couldnt see why tho then dropped the car down and seen this..... my gear box mount snapped in half **** roads... eh

    holy moly!!! you need to get back to the road, take some pics. Then take your car to Audi and get them to diagnose the problem. Send all this to the local council and demand compensation.

    It must have been big hole!
