    For those who didn't know! Dead RS4.!!

    Just thought i'd give NickElvery and his now very dead RS4 a mention.

    All i know is this:
    Blind Bend, Deer, Swerve, Ditch, Cartwheel and a Roll.

    Nick and his passenger walked away (thank christ) with only his pride and wallet damaged.

    I think this is an amazing tribute to the build quality of Audi and a few people have commented "he probably wouldn't have walked away in a lesser quality built car"

    For the animal lovers out there, he missed the Deer!

    Just wanted to take up a tiny piece of this forum to wish him all the best.

    And yes he is on the look out for another RS4 and promises me it will be well before Audimeets in July!

    I knew someone who rolled a B5 A4 a good few years ago and walked away from that, total testiment to the strength of the passenger compartment in the A4. Glad your all ok Nick.

    It would take a brave man (or a sick one) to take no avoiding action - and hitting a deer can do lots of damage anyway - its just a decision to make as to how extreme the swerve needs to be - a quick decision too!
