Another A4 down...
While getting out of the car wash i made left turn on an intersection goin pretty fast. Car loses control and fishtails most likely from wet tires and dry ice... I countersteer but end up fishtailing the other way and doing a 180 in the middle of the street. I then hit a curb sideways and f*&^*ed up my front and rear left suspension! Over 3grand in damage.....this blows. Sorry just had to vent. Luckily i was the only one involved

Honestly i dont know, i told my insurance company the situation and the referred it back to me as dry ice.

Dry ice? I dont know about "dry" ice . . . Might have been from tire shine at the car wash. Even if you didnt get it on your car there is usually a lot of that crap on the ground from them doing other cars . . .

Sucks, sorry to hear. Perhaps you/he meant "black ice".

I would think black ice is the correct term.

I probably already know the answer but im gonna ask you guys anyways. Even though i had no control over the car skidding my insurance company will still blame it on me right since i was the only one involved and i guess they have to blame somebody. They claimed it as collision damage obviously.

Even though i had no control over the car... my insurance company will still blame it on me...
