    I have known them to snap their crankshaft, can you get a more detailed description?

    That is odd.... could you see if there is a part number on that glow plug and also private message me your registration number please. To be honest, for what they have done time and labour wise, 450 is about right, it isn’t their fault that you car is damaged. Is there any history of glow plug changes?

    That glow plug looks like its tip is melted rather than broken off. Can you get a scan done or get a 2nd opinion

    Thanks for the reply, yeah sadly the engine is gone, took the car somewhere else to be checked again, and they confirmed the car needs a new or second hand engine, my worst nightmare.
    Could anyone advice me what the best way to go forward?
    should I go for second hand VW engine or Audi engine ?
    Any advice greatly appreciated .
