    Good attitude, that will make it easier to say goodbye to the car. Don't torture yourself over what happened - it's clear that it was someone else who caused the accident, so remind yourself of that and it'll stop nagging at you.
    Glad you're ok.

    Just glad to hear you are ok. There are many more cars in the world but no more of you. Hope the insurance process goes ok. My mate wrote off his TVR the day before he was supposed to hand it over to it's new owner. In the end he got more from the insurance than the sale he had agreed!

    So sorry to hear of such a great car going to meet its maker! but so glad you're ok. I think best wishes to him upstairs might be in order to walk away from that defies belief

    Wishing you a speedy recovery

    Feel for you mate, but as already said, you're ok, and that's the main thing.

    Holy /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/swear.gif mate, as everyone else has said, the car can be replaced but you can't !

    It does show you just how well built the A3/S3 series is to take all that punishment and let you walk away.

    hope you heal quickly and get the insurance sorted asap

    Jesus! 2nd crash in that car isn't it? V unlucky....

    Makes me mad to see the consquences of other's poor driving, could of been serious injury (or worse) just because some /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/swear.gif doesn't look where they're going.

    Nearly got rear ended this morning in the VX because some prat behind me was too busy messing with something on the passenger seat!!!

    ...miss my S3 somewhat looking at pics like that - wouldn't fancy my chances in a similar crash /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    well all sorted at last. Insurance company just agreed to pay out £13250 for the car which is pretty good i thought. That was the best offer i had during the time it was for sale so i havent really lost anything.

    Miss it though /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif just have to hurry up and get my E46 M3!

    Good to hear you've got a settlement, I take it the other party has admitted liability?

    good luck with the new car and lets have some pics when you get it! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/groovy.gif
