Another New Guy

Hello all. Been lurking for some time when I picked up my new to me 2012 S3 R in 2017. Now I'm having some problems so it's time to join up and pick the brains of other folks!

I guess while I wait for my account to go active I'll explain my issue. I have the dreaded snapped crankshaft on the cam side on my 2012 S3R at only 13k miles. Crawling has shown a lot of 02-03 Sprints with bad cranks but not as much in recent times. Trying to figure out if this is just a bad crank or I should look for other issues that may have contributed.
