Hi guys,

Feeling a tad sickened and only just managed to pick up phone to communicate,
Last night my beloved
A3 2.0 tfsi quattro s line gave it's last breath,
Bottom end obliteratedmechanic said he's never seen a crank so bad,
shells had disintegrated creating sludge and starving top end of oil
So what would you do guys??
Money's tight but can't bere to let her go,
I also have brand new in box turbo back millteck with sports cat ready to fit,
car itself is on a stage 1 remap with pipercross filter.
Any suggestions I'm interested in all your opinions please,
I'm thinking of shelving it and waiting for right breaker to come along with reasonable mileage ect
Any way thanks for your time guys,
I'm 51 and have honestly not loved a car as much as this apart from my MK2 golf

Oh forgot to ask do I need an A3 8p quattro specific lump or will any 200 bhp A3 8p lump fit?
Cheers guys
