What do u mean by jumps? Is it a 3 or 4spd? If its a 4spd, it could be your S5 solenoid. It's a good idea to check the fluid level. If its low it can cause a multitude of problems.

sill panels are spot welded from factory.....call a mobile dent doctor..or use a skin of bog....preferrably the dent doctor as they do it at a reasonable price and dont crack the paint either.

I recently removed my front guards....god you should have seen the crap that was packed in the drain holes below the A pillar ( at the bottom corner of front doors )
I cleaned it out thoroughly and coated it with fish oil....no wonder cars rust out around that area as the moisture gets caught in the crap....

So if anyone ever removes their front guards it would be a good idea to clean this section out...

Lets go find that Hotdog tree I planted

Talk to Jack about the levelling system...apparently its very expensive to repair and works out easier/cheaper to rip it out and fit the normal setup.
As for your mates dents...the dent doctors should be able to fix it.. not 100% sure though
