    The deer hit me-carnage pics

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    So I hit a deer last week. I was pretty lucky as I was going 90 up a back road in the dark. Hit the brakes but didnít quite have enough time to stop. Hit it at 5-10 mph.



    My first priority was the headlight. I picked one up and immediately got to work redoing the clear corner and clear projector lens swap. When I put the headlight back in it wasnít working. Swapped bulbs with the left side to test and it turns out it must be the ballast so I ordered one.



    I also did my best to pull out the fender and zip tied the bumper a little. Itís actually decent for now. Iím looking for a fender and s line bumper in phantom black.

    I was gonna say looks like mostly cosmetic damage, had a few extra parts that you might have needed but it looks like you sourced them already. Glad you made out OK.
    Will also have my OEM S-Line (no license plate holes) grill if your interested.

    I am still looking for a front bumper and fender. Itís hard to tell in that pic but I didnít replace anything yet. Eventually Iíd definitely be interested in the grill but the bumper and fender are my priority right now.

    yeh youd be surprised the damage they can do, local chiropractors wife was killed about 10 years ago now by a deer. She hit it doing probably 40+ and it flipped over the hood of the car, went through the windshield and landed on her. Thing probably weighed 400lbs.

    I was confused about the scuff marks too but figured it was the bone or foot maybe. Weird thing is the deer ran off and there was hardly any blood.

    Deer are all muscle. Theyíre pretty tough at low speeds.

    Yeah the scratches kind of threw me off. Must have hit the hooves or hind legs - even antlers if it was a buck. I've never hit one with a car but have harvested quite a few. Tough creatures for sure!

    Good luck with the repair. Upgrade time to S4 front!

    Ya the fix ain't hard I know that. But my problem is the car is an 09 and has over 135k on it and the insurance company wants to total it out. And I'm not sure I want to buy it back and have a salvage title...

    Same issue I had and I bought it back. Wasnít gonna let all that money I put into it go to waste. The damage wasnít that bad so I said fuck it, total it but Iím keeping it. They wrote me a check for what it was worth, minus the 1300 they took off from the buy back and Iím a happy camper. Came out winning tbh.

    Your car looks great! My only consolation is that I get to upgrade to the s4 front which I wanted to do sooner or later but it probably would have been pretty far off. Where did you get the Quattro grill?

    Iím about to pull he trigger on this. Itís hard to tell if itís brilliant black or phantom black. I asked the seller and he canít say. Iíll probably buy it anyway because it has a few scratches so it would need paint anyway.

    Was on the interstate, probably hit the deer at around 60-65mph. Didn't have much time for brakes to slow me down, plus it just started snowing.

    Deer ran into the side of my car while I was going about 60-65

    Destroyed the front left fender, bent the hood, smashed my door in so far it couldn't be opened, smacked off my side mirror, dented the a-piller, crushed the rear door, then dented my quarter panel and ripped off my rear bumper halfway

    I wasn't a happy camper

    It came from behind a big sign congratulating a newly wed couple. I secretly hope their marriage is doomed now

    I️ hit mine going around 15. Bent my hood and chipped my paint and all that I️ did was give it a hair cut. Luckily found a good used one on Craigslist that was in better shape than mine

    You can negotiate with your insurance company. Tell them you will take less if they leave the title clean. As long as you are OK with taking less.

    I have had to do this when a woman pulled out in front of me in.
