    Crashed my rare colour S3 last night:(

    Car in front had stopped to turn right on a hill, i hit him and ended up on side of the road in the trees.
    Car starts but transmission seems to have locked up, could be driveshaft jammed somehow as front steering arm has broken and wheel is hanging off.
    Will know next week if it is a write off:(

    Luckily air bags never went off. I'm wondering if there was diesel on the road as i braked hard but didn't seem to slow at all.

    Absolutely gutted for you, but as others have said at least you are ok, just have to wait and see what the insurance say.... I was only thinking about your car the other week as I saw a newish Tourmaline 8P3 S3 for sale at Cheshire Oaks Audi...meant to post a link up to it in the 8P section as it was such a rare colour....heres a link from another website 2010 AUDI A3 2,443m £27,550 think the car has been sold as I could not find it on the Audi website.

    Got the car back now. The garage have done a brilliant job.
    In the end it needed 2x wings, bumper, bonnet and 2x headlights and drive shaft popping back in.

    Impoosible to tell where it has been resprayed and it actually drives better than it did before.

    I'll post some pics up when it comes out of my garage.

    I just got a nail through the side wall of one of my Pirelli p zero's on my 19" oz's, so i'm waiting for the tyre to be fixed.

    The paint quality and match really are spot on. I also had the rear bumper and sills sprayed at the same time and i can honestly not tell that it is not the original paint.

    Your lucky the airbags didn't deploy, it seems its pretty much an instant write off nowadays if the airbags go,
    Looks like they have done a good job + better drive - seems good :)

    Any problems with Admiral?
