    yeh got really bad whiplash, booked in to see the physio next week...


    car is with audi, guy has said to me he will 100% admit liability.. i guess he was genuine about his NCB but i just would never let it go anywhere but audi approved.. i still got funny with audi when they were sorting out where it was going.. so fingers crossed it all goes well. in the mean time i got this A4 3.0 tdi SE and im sorry but its so boring its untrue...

    No SERIOUSLY, you should do that, I swapped my wheel over with a TT loan car I had, mine had scratches all over the trim, so swapped it over

    He's right you know!!

    I got given an S3 as a loan car while my A3 was in for repairs. I just removed the front Audi rings from the S3 and stuck them on my mate's car and returned that. I kept the S3.
    They weren't at all suspicious.

    I took this photo of the car just before handing it over to them......

    Ok ok, that's not the whole truth. They were a little suspicious. But only because it didn't have metal wing mirrors.
    I just told them they got stolen and I replaced them with Fiesta ones so it wouldn't happen again.

    Hope you'll fall in love with your car again mate when it gets back!

    Which bodyshop has your S3 been taken into?
    I went with my damage to Chingford Audi and they are outsourcing the work with Balgores Motor Group. 2-3 weeks I got told and was given a 2008 VW Polo 1.2 with 60bhp.. As exciting to drive as a supermarket trolley...
