    Where would someone get a baffled sump for a 1998 Audi A3 (should be same or similar to Mk4 Golf of same year).

    Google turns up very little.....

    Its also called a windage tray, but it goes inside your oil sump and stops the oil from sloshing about when on a track or hard cornering.

    Its for the Turbo I need.

    Thats exactly also what I needed to see, £235 for a baffled sump!!!

    I'll be buying a brand new sump at £70 and welding in my own Alu baffles.....
