01-09-2007, 10:50 AM
Got rear ended on supelveda :-( hit another car in front of me jumped the sidewalk and hit a lil fence pole, will have pics up later. Should be atleast 5-6k in damage. My car is only worth like 12k and thats because i spent 2k on timing belt, etc. and control arms and tie rods. FUCK!

Damn that sucks. sorry to hear

01-09-2007, 11:54 AM
sux man.. get some pics up

good luck gettin her fixed

01-09-2007, 11:54 AM
dam man that blows...

01-09-2007, 11:56 AM
even though it sucks your car got hit...at least the person that rearended you will be the one held at fault. Time for mods, or new car!

01-09-2007, 12:01 PM
I FEEL FOR YOU MAN...its tough spending money on repairs just to have some other shizzy pop up all of a sudden! hold your head man.

01-09-2007, 12:02 PM
glad your ok. Now turn around and make it a good thing. ie:mods.

01-09-2007, 12:40 PM
i think the only mod is a new car. Front end damage usually runs you 4-6k anyways. Add the rear and you're totaled. Sorry man. i hope things work out for you. Maybe s4 time?

01-09-2007, 12:45 PM
If your tb etc. expenses were recent and they total the car send in all your receipts to the insurance and they should cover that as well. At least it happened with my old car.

01-09-2007, 08:26 PM
sorry to hear man, atleast you're ok

01-09-2007, 09:47 PM
sorry to hear man. hopefully its not too bad!!

01-09-2007, 11:21 PM
Thank you for your kind words people! ok, its about 4.9k in damage, purely cosmetic thus far w/o putting the car on a lift. But it drives ok, i drove it to work after the accident then home. A guy in a silver s4 works in my building was in the next lane over and saw a part of it and left me a note saying i could use him as a witness. I doubt i'll need him though. I'll take pics when there is light out tomorrow. I doubt they'll salvage the car for 5k in damage when retail blue book is 12.5k.

I think Queen and their song "Another one bites the dust" is going to be the Audizine B5 theme song ......[eek] [=(] (I didn't just date myself, did I?)

Sorry for your loss and I hope you get your car fixed and back on the road soon.

gutted. s0ri 2 hea

that is where she was stopped! sticking out into the lane a lil bit, there is a small curb there with a chain link fence as my fender, bumper, and hood indicate....anyways its a dangerous place to be stopped in morning LA traffic after a curve like that in the road. Either way i could have driven around her i think if i wasn't hit from behind

01-10-2007, 12:59 AM
the pics dont look too horrible....looks like insurance will fix it pretty easily

01-10-2007, 02:24 AM
lucky that a4s are a well built car :)

01-10-2007, 03:50 AM
yep, doesn't look too bad at all. looks like mainly body work. hopefully your newly installed suspension isn't fuxored.

01-10-2007, 05:32 AM
they will not total that out, just make sure you get quotes from a few shops and try to keep them as low as you can

01-10-2007, 07:24 AM
nevermind, yeah that is definantly fixable. How do you figure its worth 12.5k? Its a 1998.5 or a 1999. Mine with 65k miles only blue books for 9k

turbo kraut
01-10-2007, 08:31 AM
dude, you can fix that with a new bumper, say 500 and paint, pix don't look bad at all, there is no major damage

i hit a tree in my s-10 with a steel bumper and only did 8 worth, new bumper, gas tank, and hood was the most expensive part

yous is all cosmetic, that should be no more than 2500 or so

01-10-2007, 10:35 AM
yah i'm gonna try to fix the major stuff, bumpers, fenders and hood. Of which both bumpers and left fender must be replaced. And the car isn't worth 12.5k, its what insurance would have to give me (its retail bluebook value). If i can find new bumpers for cheap that'd be nice. The fenders only go for $220 each. But the bumpers new are like $580 each.

01-10-2007, 05:00 PM
S4 front, euro S4 rear, cf hood, fenders, and doors [:D] .. that should fix the cosmetic damage (don't really think that there is a lot if any engine/frame damage)..

but sorry to hear man.. i have to read these threads more and more wondering if one time it's going to be me [:(]

01-10-2007, 08:27 PM
i know exactly where you got hit. people in LA dont know how to drive. sorry to hear that.

01-10-2007, 10:58 PM
dibs on lights haha jping, i know the feeling did the freaking t-belt and my car was wrecked.

01-11-2007, 12:18 AM
weird thing is, i'm very content with my car. I love the way it looks when its washed. Love the one of a kind rims!!! I just wish it was manual and had the symphony head unit so i can instal the RSN-E unit. I love the way it handles, its slow but its got enough torque for rare fun. So an 03 B6 quattro manual with symphony would be a beautiful and cheap upgrade. WE SHALL SEE!

01-11-2007, 09:04 AM
not too bad....but i'm still sorry for your accident =/
it hurt me too....

good luck!

01-11-2007, 04:18 PM
Oh man sorry to see that man.
