    this morning was at a round about the misus was driving, son of 11months in back passenger side, someone decided to fly and not stop at a roundabout, i was in the passenger side, went straight into the side of the A3 and wrote it off, back quater nackered some ohw but chassis legs and full front end all bent etc couldnt even open the drivers door, been at the hospital all day with the misus thank god our son was ok and the eldest was at nursery as he would have been at the back of the side that was hit, car is a right mess, so gutted, all the hard work etc and was just getting there with its looks, thank got it was only metal that was fooked up, felt like stranggling the old t**ser who was driving a 54 plate corsa, ive damaged muscles from top to bottom in right arm with a large serious burn off the air bag and the misus has whip lash etc, feel like crying

    Thats bad especially after all your hard work, however it's important to remember you and your loved ones are safe. Thanks to the Audi gods for that.

    agree with you all, remember writing what you lot have just wrote on other peoples walls, now i know how they feel, honestly have tears in my eyes, just when it was taking shape, obviously taking my stereo out, door cards off what i just put on, duno weather to bother with wheels to be honest just so fed up, glad my misus and child are ok though, might be a good excuse to start thinking about a s3 or somthing when paid out

    Mate,

    as gutting as it is any accident you can walk away from is better than the alternative.

    Cars can be replaced, kids and missus cant!

    Looking forward to see what you end up with next (S3...go on!)

    Damn mate, so sorry to hear this, main thing is you guys are all ok and have been able to walk away from it, especially with the little un in the car.

    Dont worry about the car, thats something that can be replaced and already has by the sounds of it....family/loved ones cant.

    I have become a sentimental old fart since having a child, so can defo feel your pain, as would hate to be in this situation.

    Chin up mate, im sure all will get sorted in due course.

    feel for you ma man, as all have said, glad ur all ok, makes you appreciate what you got!!

    just a point to be made, since being on this forum near enuff once a week sumone is involved in some kind of accident and this is the worse injuries ive come across sustained by one of our users!! mind, im glad ur other littl'un was not present otherwise it coulda been a different story..

    as much as I sound like an uncle albert, safety is the be all and end all, and its nice to have that assurance that ur in something that is pretty damn safe.

    drive safe

    This may not be the time, but you should be able to get a fairly large payout for your youngest though.
    I know a few people who had car crash's as kids and have just been paid out after turning 18, so are in the £££££.

    I'm sorry to hear about this. But glad you and your family are fine thats the main thing. I enjoyed watching the updates on your car. But a car can be replaced and family cant. Hope you get it all sorted soon. Keep us updated
