damn that really sucks about the front end damage, but for the axle and hub, sorry but you should know better on PA roads. I wouldnt trust anything over a 1" drop most of the time.

well hey, if it's any consolation I hit a racoon at 1200 miles and shattered my front vailence on my 337. $700 later I had a nice new silver vailence thingie on the front of my car. Bummer. PS two weeks ago some one backed into my car and now I have $450 worth of scratches and gouges to take care of. Best of luck

It amazes me how well older dubbers grasp this concept with not problems whatsoever, but Joe 17-year-old expects the dealership to pay when his ghetto superchargered VR6 with stock fueling system leans out and frys some piston rings.
I'm a relative newbie to dubs, and I it is blatantly obvious waht the MKIV has done to the scene.
Props for someone honest in here who excepts responsibility and doesn't constantly attempt to rip off dealerships!
