    If not too bad chemical metal may help you out for a while, I had to do it on my 1.8T after hitting a speed hump lasted over 2 months without a leak and only replaced when I had the oil pump replaced.

    This thread has reminded me that i really need to look at making a sump guard, im now running 35 profiles on the font and the suspension is the lowest its ever been, if i smashed the sump id be sick as a chip

    I would imagine the busted part on the V6 is the lower part - easier to replace than that of the 1,8T, which is all one piece.

    On the V6, the lower part replacement can be done without lowering the subframe / raising the engine.

    I know my V8, and i think also Craigs S4, both have a two piece sump, with a cast alloy housing on the bottom of the block, then a pressed steel "pan" underneath.

    I would assume the 30v's are the same?

    If thats the case then changing the pressed steel pan shouldnt be too bad?

    The ACK lower pan is also cast aluminium, and is easy to replace.

    Worth noting, there are 2 types - with and without provision for fitting the oil quality sensor.

    And no using your phone whilst on the move, I'd say you got off lightly.

    Out of interest, how low is your car?
