Bloody Fox - Damaged Car!!!!
Have you ever had the feeling that a car just wasn't meant for you?
I have had nothing but problems with my 1.8T Quattro Sport since I got it in December and on Thursday night I was driving past Edinburgh airport, whilst actually doing the speed limit and a massive fox ended up running accross the road and there was no way I could have avoided it and it has caused a lot of damage.
I had it checked out at Audi in Glasgow and not only does it need a full new bumper, all 3 grille's, a new air-con unit but new power steering. I was honestly only doing 40mph and can't believe the damage that it has done.
It was about 21:30 when it happened and I didn't see it until it was in the beam of the NSF light. As it is going to cost so much to repair, I'm going to put it through the insurance which is really pissing me off, but thankfully I have protected NCB, so it shouldn't cost me anymore next year.
Just can't wait to see what the courtesy car I get when it goes in. I have insited that it's something nice, as I sometimes use my car for work and take clients out for lunch etc soa Polo won't do. I remeber about 11 years ago, I hit a dear when I had a company car - what a mess that made!!
Anyone else had a similar situation? I'll post pictures up at some point.
