    Wow that driver must have been totally blind, looks like he/she was approaching roundabout at a considerable speed. Well at least you and passengers are ok and your not at fault. Hope it gets sorted soon mate.

Inside the boot all the plastics are snapped cant pull up the boot floor cover because itals wedged against all the broken bits.

    I afraid if there is damage to chassis and the insurance company deems it uneconomical to repair, then it would be a write off.

    Oh dear thats a fair bit of damage tbh, the crumples on the side arent a good sign, 25mph seems low to cause that kind of damage.

    It was a rough guess tbh. I didn't see him tanking into the back of me.. Only felt the car lift up :) felt like i was hit by a train.

    What do you think the chances of it being a write off are? I think quite unlikely because of the value of the car. Although i stand strong against it when i mean if it don't come back like its just been made by audi I'm rejecting it.

    mate looking at those pics i would say it might actually be a write-off... yes against the cost of the car it may not cost as much but then if it is chassis damage then the insurance might just say that its not safe to have it repaired and then just write it off... its not the first time i have seen them do that. of course you could buy the car back and repair it if you wanted to go down that route.

    So did they pick up the car from you? you said on fb that they will collect it... let us know what they say about how much repair costs will be and if they do decide to repair it or write it off.

    Do you have gap insurance????

    So sorry to see this, the standards of driving you see about these days are horrific. People drive like @\/^!$ these days, preoccupied with anything other than driving.

    So sorry for you mate, hope it gets resolved to your satisfaction.

    Not a good start to the year mate so hope you get it back on the road quickly. Like you say, don't accept anything other than perfection back....they're charging the insurance company top dollar. I was a right anal tw%t when mine went into the body shop!
