    Bit of a strange dilemma?

    Leave it be. You have been paid out by the insurance company and you have no technical right to it and the current owner might have bought it as salvage. Save the hassle and headache

    Audi A3 2.0 Tfsi cracked sump

    If its been ran until the engine seized on its own accord then look for a replacement engine. If it was switched off as soon as low oil light came on then you should be fine with a new sump. If you have removed an audi engine before then you know what your in for as its time consuming.

    One for Electricians!

    Mine trip too when any bulb blows in the house. I'd say a small price to pay for piece of mind. Get the wiring checked on both the switches and the light fitting itself.

    Look what I woke up to this morning....

    IIRC you can claim for any paintwork that is damaged as a direct result from glass breakage. I had my side windows smashed on a BMW i had years ago and the scredriver left dents along the pillars. The insurance company paid to have it all fixed with no affect to my NCB. Worth checking
