it almost looks like the old guy is lying dead over the steering wheel in that last pic.

glad to hear that you're all right and that you could get a newer car out of the whole experience.

Just be glad your ok. I had the same thing happen to me nearly 14 years ago right about this time of year, lady hit me doing over 85 mph when she hit the gas instead of the brake when the fwy stopped.

Yeah, keep the wheels.

How'd you get hit on both sides like that? Did you slam into a lightpost or something afterwards?

In the first pic you can see that he is hit on the driver side and then the passenger side is pushed into the car next to him.

Dude my side airbags didnt go off either and my impact was harder than that. I think audi needs to know about this. Suposedly these cars arent that great for side impact accidents without airbags deploying. Same for honda. Honda is the worst side impact car without airbags but was rated the highest safety award for side impact when it was equipt with air bags. suposedly you have to be hit in the front for the side bags to go off. i think this is BS....

If you are hit from the side there is no reason for the air bags in front of you to go off since you are going to be thrown sideways not forward. The sensors for the 2 front air bags are at the front of the car. This is why most cars come with side impact air bags now.

Sucks about the accident, but atleast you're ok and you get a new car. U plan on getting a b6 or b7?
