People in the states absolutely SUCK at driving. Im soo angry right now. If i caught the two people that did this (it was clearly two different cars) I'd would have beaten some SERIOUS ass. My car was parked at school for not even a full 12 hours, and this is what happened:

But what I'm really mad about was, is I was going to take my car to a dealer and see how much they would give me for it towards an S4. Doesn't look like thats happening anytime soon. [headbang]

Damn...

You got hit in the front and in the rear in one afternoon?

Almost seems like someone intentionally did it.

I HATE parking on the side of streets.

DAMN DUDE! Try and stay postive though. Go through insurance...cough up the deductible and get a euro s4 rear and s4 front out of it.

How much is that going to cost to fix. $5,000? might that be a totaled?

Yea. I immediately called security and they were all "Oh, we dont have any cameras looking in that direction." I was about to explode.

On a lighter note, I just got back from test driving the S4 and all I can say is, wow. What I want to do is sell them the car as it is (he said they'd take it like that) and then use the insurance check plus a loan to get the S. That seems like a good plan to me.

I hope its either a big check to "fix" or totaled. One of the two will equal money towards the S4. If its "totaled" (which imo it isnt) it will be one more reason to have a new car!

Im still incredibly mad. Anyone have any rough guesses on what insurance will give me, totaled or not.

edit!!!! I noticed that the rear quarter pannel that is busted is now touching the rear door. I know that can not be good news.

how the hell did you get hit in the back and the front..
and yea so many people dont know how to drive...its rediculious.

i would drive around the area for a lil bit and scope out to see if you can find the cars that did it...if its a back street then im sure its someone local. just a thought

about 4k for the rear and 1k for the front.

Looks to me that the repair will cost more than value of the car for sure. Insurance will definately total this car and give you a descent check. Your insurance will go up but you should be able to buy it out for cheap, then sell it to the dealer if they give you a price more than the buyout price.

Sorry, bro that car is definetly Totalled.

hope your insurance treats you well

Im seriosuly about to scour my whole campus for a car that has even the slightest damage. Cause it HAD to be a student that i was parked infront of. It HAD TO BE.

And they like literally drove through my trunk and rear light to leave. My trunk is full of debris.

I'm sorry :( I'd be flipping out... Oh wait, when I saw that girl try and run after she drove into my car I punched her door so hard I dented it. I'd wreck kids.

On the plus side, can you say S4? Maybe an IC-S4? Time to go to [wrench]

No sense crying over spilt milk, plus that's one less 1.8t in Greenwich j/k

Gimme a call, plus I'll talk to you dad and tell him that you NEED an S4 or that it will be safer than an A4 because bigger breaks, better suspension and twin turbo engine...

im no expert but I would say that its totaled. Good news is you know what your next car is going to be. Hopefully you get everything worked out with the insurance.

This will definately serve as a chance to upgrade. My buddy had a really beat up, not maintained 2.8 A4 fwd which he paid like 3k for and someone hit it. He got 7k for it and boutht a real legit 2.8 A4 with quattro using that cash.

That happened to me with my last A4. I finally upgraded from the 2.8 to a 1.8t. And now I'm trying to graduate to the 2.7tt. Im still trying my hardest to move up a notch in the Audi world.

Hokay So, my dad picked up the case report and as it turns out there were 5 cars involved in my accident thing. I was parked on a slight hill. Heres what happened:

Car number one is heading down the hill while car number two is coming up the hill. Car number two isn't moving to the side of the road, so cars one and two collide. When they collide, car number one is then further sent into my car (car number three). My car then moves forward from the impact and hits car number four, which in turn moves forward and hits car number five.

Quite the situation. I'll be honest, I laughed when my father called me and read the report to me. As much as the situation sucks, you gotta admit, thats a little funny. We're taking the car to an auto body tomorrow to get an estimate so we can give it to the claims adjuster. I know its going to be a huge sum to fix it. I'll let you all know what happens with the auto body shop!

UPDATE!!!! (sorry for the bump)

The insurance adjuster deemed the vehicle "totaled" before they even got around to looking at the hood. They estimated we will get about $7,800-7,900 ish.

Now, I need some good pro's for getting an S4. I gotta win the debate with my parents so I can get a loan to get the S4. Most of mine were based around the fact that it will be better to get a new car rather than fix the A4. Anyone got any suggestions?

Yeah seriously, if my car was hit and ran I'd cry, too poor for full insurance.

Sorry to see that man, I hope you get a good amount from the insurance, that looks like a good amount of work, especially on the rear. I had minor damage on my car (Bumper cover, minor rear quarter damage and fender damage) and that came out to 1995 dollars. I wouldn't be surprised if you're in the 3k range.

find out how much it is to buy the car back. You could probably turn a profit if you have the time

wow man that sucks, i work a well known auto body shop in NJ and that thing is whacked pretty bad, you are looking at a good 5000 dollar repair bill there AT LEAST, so you wish of it being totalled could come true, but tough to tell, depends how many miles you got on it and whatnot good luck with it all thought S4 sounds good [up]

02-17-2008, 07:50 PM
one additional thing i forgot to mention, i dont know who your ins. company is if you dont mind asking, but a lot of ins. companies will not write a real good estimate right off the bat cause the are afraid you will take the money and run (as in this case) haha, i know with us a 2000 estimate from an insurance company can quickly turn into 3500

Do tell more! They take it away sometime tomorrow.

Well the buy back option is really the insurance company taking ownership of your car and they give you the totaled value which you posted about 7800 bucks...Then you buy the car back at the depreciated value with the damage. I'm guessing the buy back on this car is about $1500-2000. So basically you end up with your damaged car back and 5800-6300 back from the insurance company. Then you begin the process of selling parts of your car off to people on the forums. The motor should fetch about 1000, sell off the suspension stuff and the turbo. Then pretty much everything else is profit.
