What a Great Birthday present for tomm.... I turn 22.

Just got home a bit ago.
Me and my girl are ok... Back road in Columbia hit a big buck doin about 45mph. (Just left a driveway a mile back) Bounced off the right fender/grill hit the left fender and flew up about 15 feet and over a fence... Couldnt find him but he was moaning and movin around for fifteen min untill state troopers got there.


Both Headlights(incl adaptive system), Bother fenders, Hood/Latch+strut, Radiator, Bumper, Front Grill, battery problems
Fogs/Fog grills, Radiator support possibly, and some other stuff, It's dark and sprinkling so I'll look more tomm.
Only thing that survived were the damn LEDs... lol covered in deer goo but still good.


Guys coming tomm, then it's going to Audi Dealer for all repairs.

I'll try and get a couple pics up in a few min.

Sucks...

UPDATE BELOW: damage repairs came to $7,500 by a eye inspection and once shop takes it apart it will be about 10,000 said the insurance agent.
alrdy got the 7500 check and its at the shop, they will cut another check for the other 3k

Ouch! Damn deer.... Glad to hear no one was seriously hurt (this excludes that 4-legged mammal who ruined a perfectly good audi). Anyways, I hope goes well with the repairs.

Couldnt find the deer, went through two fields and over two fences, But I think I saw a different path and something laying
in the field yestrday so im going to look again.

Insurance guy just left, From just looking at it, his repair list came to $7,500 and once the shop takes it apart he said it'll be
about $10,000. Lucky I only pay $500 and insurance has the rest, they even payed for the tow to my house (30min) and the tow
that the dealer will make which is about 40 miles each way.

He printed out the check in our driveway, and once the shop finds more they will cover the rest too.

Whats even better, He's letting me keep the grill and both headlights since their broke anyway.
lol

"Are you in good hands" lol. No but seriously, they are great people, helped me out a lot too last winter when someone slammed into me when i was at a deadstop at a light, causing me to hit the guy in front of me, car should have been totaled, but somehow they managed to save her!!

haha I wish they would total this out. I bought it for 16, Owe 14, Its worth 20. lol they'd pay off my loan and hand me 6k in cash and I'd just buy another one for a great deal I like I did this one a year ago and 40k miles ago.
No but rly, I wish they'd find something with the motor and replace it, im at 127k. lol

For real though, I'm glad Im ok, my insurance company is doing me right, and I'll have her back with a new front end!
Gotta re install the LED's and finish making the video I was going to. lol

Damn, sorry to hear that man. I just did something similar to my C5. Replace the deer with a guard rail and im in the same boat as you. Glad to see you got out ok.

I should get it back the end of this coming week. So about 5 days.... I'm ready. I miss her. I'm driving a 93 Chevy Lumina from my Grandma... lol Went from A Heated Steering wheel to manual roll up windows. :lol:

Well. This is a LATE update, But I ended up not getting the car back for two months, and then had to take it back again because the paint wasn't a perfect match.

It ended up being $10,500 in damage and cost.
My Driver Headlight has condensation so I'll be going back for another new headlight in jan. When I have time.


Anyway, She's back and better than ever.

Also when you hit the deer did you just plow through it or did he stop you in your tracks.

These cars are really tanks. :)
