    So my S3 failed the MOT today with outer sills that were given the OK last year and only 3000 miles of dry(ish) driving.
    Should I fix or what am I looking at price wise if I break her :bye:

    Last year we put on new bi-xenon headlamps and replaced the turbo back exhaust with a custom 2.75 system and sports cat.

    What about cutting the sills out and welding some newer ones in?

    Unfortunately all of ours will need doing at some point, it’s worth getting it done in my opinion. I noticed mine aren’t looking great the other week

    I suppose it’s going to cause a lot more cars to be broken then prices will rise on these cars hopefully, I think they’re far to cheap at the minute specially on Facebook the prices I see them go for I wished I bought a decent one on there instead of mine but here I am almost there

    I haven't checked mine, I'm afraid to because no doubt they will need it at 19 years old.

    I would get the sills cut out and replaced but I am struggling to find parts and I live on the isle of Skye and not many welders keen to do the job either, seen some crazy prices to do the welding from £600 per side.

    Had mine cut out last month, both side were rotten.
    Bodyshop, folded some new sheets, welded up and rust proofed.
    Well worth doing if you love your car
