and kinda stupid also...
one thing guys, don't be lazy to check/adjust your tire pressure...

i noticed my left front tire was lookin low on air this couple of days, but being the idiot that i am, i ignored it.
i just got back from some party in burbank and it was raining, and i was too lazy to stop to fill it up.
took an exit ramp a little to fast and voila!!!! in this case quattro cant do much cuz the car was goin sideways (overcorrecting, i know, i know...).
i'm not sure if there was a puddle there or i was just taking it too fast, didn't notice how fast i was going too.
good thing i didn't hit anything/anybody. took a little dip in the ditch, i'm not even sure if it was a ditch. as a matter of fact i'm gonna go back there tommorow and check.

i hope i didn't fuck anything up, i drove it home for about 1/2 mile. too lazy to check what's going on underneath the car.
and i gotta get up in 3 hours..damn it!!!!!!!!!!

Man i check my tire pressure every friday after school. I am Nazi about it cuz if you think about those tires are the only thing touching the ground. I dont car if you have a freakin Ferrari if the tires are bad your F'd. What pressure do you guys run at by the way? I have stock rims with Bridgestone Potenza's and i try to keep it at 38psi. WhippeD i know how you feel bro i screwed up my front bumper being dumb and thinking i'm cool by rippin the E brake and i slide it along a bank. Luckily Audi Front bumpers are supriseingly strong. Good Luck Bro

ok, so far i've found this out for sure, my 2 left tires are gone, front left wheel is F*ed, nothing looks damaged underneath, except for that metal piece to hold the belly pan up.
gotta redo the bumper and the grill inserts.

now i still have to hope i didn't fuck up any joints, and susp. sys.
though alignment is in order i believe.

and yeah, it could've been alot worse.
so i guess i have to be thankful.

I always have a tire gauge in the car and make sure that my tires (225/40/18 S03s) are at 40 psi cold.

I know it's hard having a car you care about all messed up, but i'm actually glad to see a muddy audi. I've been thinking an allroad jacked up higher with mild off road tires would make a better winter car than my S4. Might even be a good light off road vehicle.
