    Ouch. I hit 2 Deer in my S4 last year. Wasn't going quick, maybe about 30-35, but still enough to cause £1800 worth of damage.

    At least its only metal thats damaged, well, and Bambi...
    Looking for the right A4 Quattro. 1.9 TDI / 1.8T or 2.0T...

    No definately not by Audi, made that mistake once many years ago (poor quality finish). Body shop guy I've known for last 16 yrs will be carrying out the work (through my ins). It's the internal damage, also new wing (crease that i didn't notice when taking pics).

    Two nice holes in the intercooler, oil cooler pipes bust and more.

    Its not only metal to you. I feel really sad that your car is damaged. I hope you get it all sorted out real soon.

    ouch, that's a *****, I nearly had an encounter with a bloody loose dog legging it out the woods on a back road a couple of days ago, was doing 60 at the time (was a 60 limit and a clear straight road...).

    I feel for you, and £2k is a wedge...at least your insurance is covering it, always worth full comp...hurts to see any damage though...

    Deer strike, i think your lucky mate, looks more like a bird strike

    A friend of mine hit a deer, wrote her car off, not much of the front end left!

    I thought that at first but the more you look at the pics the more damage is apparent, start adding those bits up along with ic/oc pipes plus paint and labour

    Bad times mate, these things are sent to test us, at least it wasnt a badger!!

    I was definately lucky, it was a muntjac, headstrike.
    As for damage it does mount up,

    Intercooler (two little holes, punctured by fog light)
    IC pipes & brackets
    OC pipes & brackets
    Fog surround
    Belly pan (split)
    N/S wing creased
    Bumper
    Grille split
    Number plate holder clip broken
    Fog light brackets snapped
    IC air duct
    Inner arch lining split

    That's about it I think then to top that until Friday I've got a Skoda Fabia Took 3 weeks to get to work this morning lol.

    Yeah they're big biuggers huh, probably wouldnt of even given them a scratch tbh, saw one run out, hit a car at a fair speed, totally goosed the car, but thing ran of without even so much a limp, not nice to see that internal damage though huh as bumper could of been welded back to oem, shame.
