    I take it everyone in the car was OK. You were moving past a junction when the Transit came out of it? I'd not be suprised if it was in moderate traffic and the car behind you flashed them to come out but they didn't check the road was clear ahead as you went past.

    The sills look intact so you may get it repaired rather than be offered some silly book price. I'd get a four wheel chassis alignment report for peace of mind though, even if it can be repaired.

    Thanks all, yes the van driver was at fault he crashed into me at a y junction he gave way to the car in front of me but failed to see me :s. I had the garage out today to take a look the guy seems to think its a write off but he said because its an Audi they might repair it. I don't mind if they write it off as long as they give me enough money to buy another one that's similar however I've been looking around and it seems that every Audi I see has been to the moon and back, mines only just hit 90,000 and its got service history. Mine's insured for five grand but I know I wont get that for it any ideas on what I will get people ?

    Hold out till you get what it's worth or more importantly what it will cost to get another one of same spec, age and mileage.
    Bloody insurance companies p1ss me off when they try it on especially when they ask you how much your car is worth / purchase value and adjust the premium accordingly then try and give you peanuts when they have to pay out, it's bad enough they all know each others premiums and price fix grrr.

    rant over

    edit: ps it's a writeoff without a shadow of doubt sorry. (unless the insurance try to get bodyshop to fill rather than replace panels - tell 'em to feck off if they do like i did, it didn't have filler for panels pre-accident so it shouldn't after. rant over again)

    If the car is written off but still straight, would it be worth buying it back and getting it fixed?

    If it is written off, see what the buy back price is and see if it's worth it for the leather interior, alloys and anything else before going to a breakers or agreeing with the breaker parts you want to remove before leaving it with them.

    I'd be happy with it.
    saves you from trying to find a car with the same spec, same miles with the money they will give you if written off.

    Just make sure you check the repair work and that you are 100% happy with it.
    If youre not, moan like fock and make sure they get it right.

    I dont think so.
    cause they are fixing it.
    If they did not fix it, then it will be a write off.

    That i dont know.
    In personal experiance I've never noticed a difference in the car once its been repaird correctly. More to do with the way I look and think about it over the car it self.

    Well finally heard off my insurance it seems to get the car repaired it'll cost 4500 but the market value for the car is only 2400 (so they say) with a scrap value of 215, they did say if I can send proof of other cars with the same spec/mileage and they'll try and match them, so now I'm looking on-line for an Audi a6 1.8 T with 95,000 on the clock

    I would not worry to much about the miles.
    As long as the car is serviced and maintained well you should be fine.

    Mate had 1.8T that did over 200k and never had an issue, untill he removed the sump on a hump back bridge. lol
