    I guess it all comes down to our friends the insurance companies.

    We all have insurance for third party risk, so this kinda thing shouldnt happen, but when a claim for a small bumper scrape can add a huge amount to your insurance premium over the next 5 years, its no surprise a lot of people, especially younger folk that are already paying a lot, just do a bolt.

    If you consider that losing your NCB, or even having a claim with a protected NCB, could easily mean your insurance costs several hundered pounds more, for the next 5 years, for some damage that could quite easily only have cost a few hundred pounds to put right, it does take the piss a little.

    A grand lol...

    The bumper cant be any more than 300 new, assuming it actually needs replaced.

    300quid to paint it sounds quite a lot to me, considering its only one small panel?

    Yikes, they've got dear!

    I think craig was recently quoted 700 to replace and repaint a roof skin... so 600quid for a bumper just seemed quite a lot!

    I'd get lookin on ebay, then get it into a mates shop if your not that handy at spraying yourself. Worst poss scenario, get it painted and then fit new bumper yourself.

    Put my new S4 wheels on and once id done that i started on the Turbo. Got the arch liners off and found i had a drilled airbox:








    Got Bumper off:







    Then headlights and crash bars:







    Then took a few pics for my own reference, but removed this pipe and it leaked on me:







    Then disconnected the intercooler pipework and this was the result:







    Think we can conclude the turbos shafted. But the problem was lack of boost not smoke. Then i found this:









    Think thatll be the penny valve then.
    And how i left it today, with 3 bolts i couldnt get too. Ill crack on tomorrow:

    If its anything like mine it had pushed back thru the wastegate hole and was sat directly below the exhaust manifold outlet, blocking the entrance to the turbine housing.
