    alrite lads, bit of a
    had a bit of a run in with a b*****d ginormous kerb block and totalled my front bumper, front panel, radiator housing, radiator and turbo intercooler. went to pick up my mate and thought the driveway slope was all one as it leads to two houses and it didn't help it was pitch black...so i drive straight up onto it...i must admit it was a rather dickhead manouvre on my part. in my defence the kerb block was unusually large, honestly about the size of a breeze block!
    any ideas where the best place to get a new turbo intercooler for an a3 2.0TDI 140? been quoted £180 +VAT, wouldn't mind so much if i hadn't already forked out for all the other bits and bobs...

    There's a few breaking for spares on the bay - may be worth getting everything from one of those!
