I encourage fixing your car yourself if you are mechanically handy. If you are unsure of what parts of your car are, I'd recommend purchasing a Bentley repair guide to do the maintenance. The hardest part is getting started, but utilizing ClubB5 and a Bentley, I'm sure you can get it running fine again.

Good luck

pretty simple fix actually. just did mine not too long ago V6 also. a cheaper haynes manual will do you fine with this repair if it is a b5 not b5.5 not sure they have one for the newer cars. anyway i got the oil pan and gasket from the deal i think it was alittle over $100. I did the job with a little help from my father I am very inexperienced my father is a weekend DIYer. so you should be fine if you have a little experience working on cars. do you have a belly pan? if not you might look into getting one. course if you destoyed your oil pan you'll pry need a new belly pan anyway. let me know if i can be of anymore help... maybe I have been none so far.
