1 of 9 lives gone...........(more like 4 of 9 to be truthfull)
I bought my 2.4 V6 last week and decided that today I was going to dedicate my entire day to minting her up and making it all good with a full service, polish and general fixes, i spent most of this week collecting parts etc
Got the car up on axle stands at about 8:30am and set to work under the car draining the oil. While I was working I could hear what sounded like someone giving it full pelt down our road (quite a busy main road) then I could hear what sounded like someone losing control.....tyres squeeling etc and it was getting louder and nearer....then I heard a collision
I instinctively rolled out from under the car and litterally at that second my car was hit and pushed right by my head and then down the road about 4 ft away :faint:
This idiot in a brand new 3 series had come hairing into the roundabout near my house, lost control and slid out across from the oposite side of the road to where i was, mounted the pavement (our cars are parked on a hard standing by the pavement) hit my wifes fabia, bounced off that and then spun and hit my car knocking it off the axle stands and about 4ft down the road.
I was very very very nearly crushed under the car :scared2:
That was the closest escape I've ever had with my life but unfortunately the A4 is less lucky, the car landed on one of the axle stand that had been knocked over and its impaled the sump by about 3". also the front bumper, driverside wing are trashed.
I expect they may write it off as beyond economical repair.
My wifes Fabia is also damaged. Wing is crushed and the passender front wheel is bent at an angle.
Still, I'm alive :)
