Is your car an 01+ also?
OP can get a used pan on eBay for cheap.
A liter a day? That's expensive and just plain ridiculous. JB weld that *****ing, just make sure it's pristine clean first.
I'm with him on this. I would try this first, and yanking the motor as a last resort. Drain the oil, keep the plug out, spray the entire bottom with brake cleaner, then JB weld it and let it cure. You have no idea how much of a PITA it is to drop the suspension. It is far easier to yank the motor.....
