My 01 1.8T Quattro Tip .... totalled last nite.
High winds knocked down the power lines, started fire, took out six cars.
I finished installing RS4 Motor & Tranny mounts, and PureMS Snub, like 15 minutes before it happened.

HAD VB upgrade done, less than a month ago. Was planning to install Eliminator at Renn-Art in May, everything was planned and ready. Dangit !!

wow that blows dude. On a brighter note looks like your driver's side rim got powdercoated. Are you getting another B5 or what?

Wow... if that's not bad luck, I don't know what is. Sorry to hear it, but I can't wait to see your next B5... get and S4!!!

Now I know why the firemen come to elementary schools just to tell kids to stay away from down powerlines... scary ish.

When I manage to take it out. You pay for the shipping, and its yours, hows that.

S4 is tempting, but I think I should stick with plain old A4.

God is telling you something.

Maybe if you had driven it you would have been killed in an accident.

I don't know, could have been worse! Check out the contour behind him. You think that's salvagable?

that was kind of a joke, your car did look great, just save some parts and buy a low milage B5 A4, mods are alot cheaper for them then the S4's [=(]

Just talked to Insurance. Some weird law for 98 and older cars, if they are declared totaled, I can't take the parts out, that are very obvious. Or they will screw me on the value of my car.

So I don't think I would be able to part the most obvious things, like steering wheel, side mirrors and stuff.

93 Octane Ship already out. Valve Body should be out too. And i guess I could take the turbo and few more parts out without being noticed.

Any tips .... what to part without much fuss of getting caught during inspection.

P.S. Is it me, or Audizine having problems with too many connections ... been like that since sunday nite.

That sucks.. great reason to upgrade to a B5 S4 though.

Cant you buy the car back from the insurance agency?

Im sure if it wasnt too bad, then you could part out the front end.

They are persistent that I can't buy it back. Yeah parting was the idea initially. Now gotta choose what to take out.

i've never heard where you COULDN'T buy it back..Maybe it's a law in your home state??hmmm

sorry to hear..that sucks big time :(

hmmm ... 2000 S4, 65K on it. What do ya think is a good asking price. S4's have same maintenance issues like A4's, like timing belts and stuff at 60K miles?

Dangit, I'm starting to dangle between A4 and S4 again. Not good. [rolleyes]

You can take part out if you swap them. Like DOT -> eCode, rims -> steelies....etc.

I would look into your insurance policy because you should be able to buy back the car. I would also look into your local laws, and go after the city for some or all of the damages done to your car. S4 would be nice, but all the mods you have on your car would transfer over to another A4 easily, and then you could part out the rest of the car and put some money into your pocket, or more mods ...[:D]

I'm planning for another B5. Chances are that I might keep the ecodes unless I get OEM Xenons.

Well right now, what could be for sale is:
- APR 93 Octane & Stock Program Chip
- EVO Divertervalve (installed on Oct. 2005)
- Carbonio Engine Cover
- Carbonio Intake
- Level 10 Valve Body upgrade

Rest, like ECodes, mounts I am planning to use in the next B5.

Is the carbonio intake the new one for the b5 or the old one? If it's the new one, how much do you want for both the intake and engine cover? PM me and let me know.

I have the old one which looks like this:

Some old memories, before Ecodes. Kinda dark, but should work.
