    Thanks very much for your detailed explanation Gallag!

    Anyone here with access to a XRF gun or MIC10 type hardness tester to confirm the type of aluminium used in the Audi space frame?

    Just ordered a set from UK eBay seller.

    We’ll see if I can get this done next spring when I have the car apart for the build. Maybe by then we’ll have a consensus weld vs epoxy, and if weld is the answer, maybe we can have more knowledge about the chemistry by then.

    Regardless, I’m going to try to have it done.
    Mine is a 2009 produced, 2010 MY V10.
    I’ve hit a pot hole before and it scared me to death knowing this could be an issue.

    I want the car to be reinforced and safe.

    People have been epoxying the E46 M3 rear subframe reinforcements for years. It’s a proven process. I don’t see why it wouldn’t apply here as well.
