As some of you know i got into an accident a week before x-mas, at first the guy at the bodyshop said it did not look totatled so i was releaved......He called me a couple of days later and told me that the insurance company came to look at it and calulated the costs and declared it totalled. That was a very sad day. the good news is that i revieved $500 less than what I payed for the car 2 years ago. Right now I am looking at b6's so this is also a farwell to the B5 formum thread.

Here is the small slideshow clip (Be easy on me, this is the first time using MS video editor)

Farewell B5ers

Insurance companies just look for the easy way out since they are not just looking at just the cost of fixing the car, add in the cost of a rental car during the time. They also figure if they total your car you will end up buying something "newer" which means your insurance costs will go up.

On the good side, you can look at it as if you paid $500 to keep your car for 2 years.. or $20.83/month! and plus you got away with some of your mods from the car which you'll turn around and sell.. Can't wait to see that grille on my car [;)]

On the bad side, they got away with your baby and you koni coilovers too! [headbang]

Good luck on the B6!

thanks panix lol...I was just acually rinsing the grille down since it had dust on it from the bodyshop.

As for the B5 S4 i could not find any of them in my price range that had low mileage....all the s4's around me were 80k miles and up....and my financial situation can not afford the reliability of a S4. I found a good deal on a CPO B6 so i think i am going to go that route. I agree that the exterior of the b5 is alot cleaner but the interior of the b6 is def superior. I did take a test drive in the b6, even though is was not for long the do have a very similar feel to them.

He's not getting a B7 I don't think.. and plus the 335i coupe is like $40,000 BASE! You can pickup a Certified Preowned B6 A4 for like $18,000. I know they don't compare but I'm just sayin'

Now strap on a set of GT35r's to that 4.2 liter and even ozz would be drooling.

plus strap on about 50,000 other things to that car and it will actually run for ozz to drool [:p]

would be a sick car though. why hasn't anyone done it?

^^The materials and fit and finish is not a doubt better on the b6....looks are subjective but most believe that the b6 is nicer

Did you ask how much insurance wants to buy your car back. Even if you don't want to fix it I guarantee parting it out will be well worth the time. With two new suspension parts my car drove like normal and I bought mine back for $1250.

But to buy the car would only cost you about $2k out of the money that you got from them and then cost you half the cost of what they said it would cost to fix the car, after that you have a car and money left over.
