    Well that's the end of my f*cking A4.

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Leaving work, some dumb bitch pulled out in front of me and totaled my A4. I had finally solved all the issues. Spent almost $20k with mods and repairs and upgrades. I am sure it will be totaled. I am sure Geico will give me about $5k fot it. I am sure I feel sick to my fucking stomach.

    I don't feel so ok. I feel like I just lost $15k and a lot of my time.

    Yeah I know that feeling. I had a project car totaled by some asshole trying to beat a red light. Every time I pass where it happened the feeling comes right back.

    You may get some money back if you keep the car and part out tho.

    Yeah. I'll see what the adjustor says. Gotta wait till Monday I'd guess. Problem with parting out is I don't have a garage or a place to keep anything.

    Dude that sucks!! Been in the same boat, with the same feeling. Hopefully your adjuster does what mine did and gave me credit for packages I didn't have. Gave me a bit more cash back.

    Wow i'm so sorry for Your loss man. Same thing happen to my last b7 i was at a red light stopped and a 17 year old girl smashed the fuck out of my 2 doors and bent the frame. It was totaled. Been there and i wish i had the chance to slap the fock outta her on the spot. All you can do now is be very mad and be mad. Nothing will make you happy for atleast a couple months. Sad way to start the year

    Get a storage locker usually 1 month free buys you 2 months to part ways...My friend did this when he needed extra funds was like $200.00 but he made like 3k in parts so was worth the $200 or so dollars..Might not be a whole lot but it gives you something extra...I'd make a parts post now see whose interested might be worth a look post??

    IANAL but if she was at fault (and hopefully ticketed) then you have a pretty good chance to recoup all of your loss if you can document everything you spent on upgrades. Also, I'm assuming that you're carrying collision coverage, which makes the two carriers talk to each other to get you a settlement as quick as possible. Talk to your adjuster and give him whatever documentation you have on what you put into your vehicle. Don't settle for the first offer. It's just that, an offer and they're hoping you need the quick nickel over the slow dime.

    That's a good idea. Thanks man. I'll consider that. Right now I have to wait for the adjuster (Monday) to tell me what's up. If they total it, and the buy back is reasonable, I will definitely consider parting it out. I wish they would have towed it to my house. Accident was blocking the road, tho, so the cops had it towed and did not give me any other options.

    Well, we have the same carrier (Geico)...but yeah, she was at fault and cited. Geico already called me to waive my deductible. My fear is Geico will try to keep costs low since they are paying for everything, however.

    She had a car full of crying and terrified kids. They were being pretty dramatic. Plus lots of good Samaritans ran out to help them. Nobody gave a shit about me, obviously. I don't even blame her...she was waved out by the guy next to me. She trusted him and he fucked us both.

    The wifey hates it when people try to yield their right of way to me. I wonít take it. Iíll sit there forever before I let someone elseís stupidity wreck my car.

    If anyone reading this is in the habit of yielding the right of way ďto be niceĒ, donít. If you have the right of way, take it. Donít give it to someone else. You being nice could get someone killed and there are right of way rules for a reason.

    Sucks man, I lost my first car a few months back. Got rear ended on a stop light. I know the feeling, but you'll be okay. Hopefully no one was hurt.

    i drive all day so i try be courteous (small town, single lanes) but one day at a 4 way stop, there was one car at one 90 deg to my left, one pulls up after, one across from me while a truck goes through. i let each first car go, as im turning right and they are both going straight. the car that arrived LAST decided she could just go while im waiting my turn. she got within a few feet of me and i wish i had more time to address her (and not get fired)

    Iíve been there. I lost a car I spent 5 years building due to a woman DUI that rear ended me. I bought it back and parted it out. Frustrating to say the least. Life sucks sometimes. Make the best out of your shitty situation.

    Sorry.

    If you do buy it back, negotiate not to have salvage title.

    Also check your policy for additional equipment coverage... for future reference, you can insure your upgrades under the additional equipment coverage.

    Sorry to see this Iíve thought about this before when planning to do mods. I think about putting in all the work and then it being in an accident and totalled. I know it sucks but like someone said at least you are OK. It might not seem like much but just think about if you got hurt and had to miss months of work or other worst cases. So Iím happy youíre OK and can post about it.

    I do feel your pain my dad had a 1st gen RX7 that he worked on for years. It had Nitrous and a ton of other modifications. My dad went for a drive one weekend and got T-Boned. The car was totalled. My dad bought it out but when it got to the house he put it in the garage under a cover and it is still there today. Every time he looks at it you can see his face fall.

    The cop on scene told me he sees it all the time, and has seen 2 ppl die bc of it. He said he wished he could ticket the guy who waved her out, but there's no law against it. Ultimately, the driver who hit me was responsible for not yeilding to my right of way. Given that she was making a blind left turn, she should have nosed out and been more cautious, at a minimum.

    I feel for ya man, sucks for sure. Iím sure you hate to hear it, but at least youíre ok. That IS the most important thing. I was hit by a car (on my bike) last thanksgiving and am still not back to work. Cars can be rebuilt, b7ís arenít super rare and you already have loads of aftermarket parts. Get an avant!
    Seriously though, good luck.
