Damnit. Im sitting in traffic and some idiot decides to rear end me doing like 20. My bumper cover needs to be replaced and the exhaust sounds like shit now so Im sure that needs to be replaced too. I just bought this car too and now its effed up. Im off to the hospital. My back is killing me. The trunk is fine. I wonder what other damager there could be to the car.

Man, that sucks! Hope everything works out for you. Did the guy (or girl) have insurance?

Hope you're feeling better. Anything hurt permanently, or are you just sore?

It was a guy who hit me. Supposedly he has insurance but I dunno. I never got a policy # from him or the cop. I do have coverage for uninsure motorists though. Guess Im gonna let this guy pay to upgrade my exhaust and get my side skirts and valences all painted when the bumper is being repainted. Nice to have a family friend who does bodywork.

Last year my car was rear ended by a lincoln towncar going about 30 or 35 while I was at a stop light. My back is still messed up. Good luck.

anyone w/ reoccuring back pain can tell you getting paid is little compensation...

Well I just had the car looked at by my mechanic and body guy. The exhaust hanger in the rear snapped and it looks like the impact tore the front exhaust flex pipe and might have bent it. Mechanic doesn't want to work on it and told me to take it to Audi, he said they would give me a higher estimate anyway.

Showed my body guy the rear bumper and he said that would need to be replaced along with the support and shit. Lucky for me I have an extra bumper and support so that extra money is gonna end up getting spent to paint all my trim pieces and valences. Hopefully I will be able to get a S4 front bumper out of the deal too. Now I just gotta get the claim rolling.

Sorry to hear about the accident man, but get an estimate from th dealer and send that your insurance company. By far, the dealer will be the most expensive place, but I am sure you already know that about dealerships :P !! Hope everything goes smoothly and hope your back feels better.

sorry to hear but take this moment and order a body kit instead of going back to stock. it should be cheaper and you can get any nicks or dents pulled all on his bill. just some words of wisdom.

Luckily my car is dent and ding free. Why where can I get a nice cheap bodykit.

Well the insurance adjuster came by and gave me $1600 for the damages. Im figuring the bodyshop won't charge me more than $500 to spray the bumper that I already have so that leaves me with $1100 to get my exhaust fixed.

I can either pay someone $100 to fix my flex pipe or order a new exhaust. Decisions, Decisions. I would really like to put that $1000 towards a dirt bike.

that sucks man. In the past four months I have been rear ended twice. The first time insurance paid out 1200 and I put an additional 1200 twords a new paint job for my old car. Not two weeks after it was out of the shop a pizza hut delivery guy slammed into me. I could have killed that dude but I kept my cool and now I have an A4. But myback is so tweaked right now it's not funny. Good luck.

BTW his insurance company will pay for almost limitless amounts of massages (I go once per week) easy and pleasurable way to get the bills past 5k

Ya I went up to Status the other day and had them look at my exhaust. Just trying to figure out if I wanna buy a new exhaust or have them fix my flex pipe by welding a new one in. I need to get this car fixed. I am driving my dads Isuzu Hombre right now. What a piece of shit that thing is.
