    Yeah the insurance guy who inspected it said the quote for repair was in excess of 9k as they can only quote genuine Audi parts, both fron airbags deployed, windscreen cracked in both front corners, passanger wheel buckled and pushed back collapsed susspension etc... couldnt believe how much black smoke was pouring out of my airbag though..The airbag burt my hand too as I was holding the wheel when it went off (obviously). Oh yeah this was a few months back now though. Shes been replaced with another A3 sportback, black 08 plate. Oh yes meant to say the guy at the salvage yard was pretty descent, let me remove a few things like the aluminium pedals, RNSE etc but he said they would have it back on the road for around 3k with second hand salvage parts...

    I know this will sound stupid but i dont think I would have been happy having her back even after repair. A few years back I had an MG ZS and it was broken into whilst at the beach, it never felt the same after so I cant imagine how it would have been driving her again after the accident, if you know what I mean?
