    Not so good. My m8 hit a deer last weekend on his way to mine. Very light damage though in comparison.

    Everyone seems to be hitting things at the moment. One guy at my work hit a monkjack deer and needed a new front bumper, then a week later another guy at work hit a phesant and needed a new fog light. Bloody sucidal wildlife.

    westle, that's a good one. It may well have also been an old deer - didn't think of that one ? Hence it's slow crossing speed ?

    Plus a zimmer frame or a walking stick would cause serious damage to the front bumber and bonnet :)

    Sorry to see the state of the car mate. It truly is soul distroying, however the Audi gods have come up trumps and another one of our members is safe and sound.
    I hope you get yourself another nice car and don't go blaming yourself as what is done is done. Chin up bud it could have been alot worse :):slapped:

    When you upload a picture on photobucket, you should get a screen with all the pics in thumbnaul form, and when you move the cursor over the pic you want, a box should open with 4 different strings of text. You need to copy and paste the bottom one which starts with [​IMG], and the picture will show in the replies. :icon_thumright:

    F**K that is a NASTY accident. I've been there and can only say whilst it does change you a bit. Not imediately but your probably going to have a few low months and feel a different person. Happily I assure you it doesn't last forever and you'll soon stop "re-living the moment" so you can get back to enjoying driving again.

    Cannot believe how big a bend you've put in the rear quater! It's not only bent all the strength points but it's even bent the roof!! 10mph faster and those chassis creases probably would have caused the whole structure to collapse. You were very lucky but wow did the cabin hold up well.

    LMFAO it feels so bad to be a vulture.

    I need the front part of one of the seats that pull out I burnt mine with a soldering iron, and the rear bumper insert.

    Glad to see your ok chap I crashed mine 2 weeks ago causing £3300 worth of damage luckily mine is nowhere near as bad as yours and I should get it back v soon :)

    HOpefully it will not put you off driving mate.....maybe you should go to a restaurant and order the biggest piece of venison you can find....get your own back. Im sure there will be another tasty S3 out there with your name on it. so are you getting the car back off the insurance or is it going to the scrappers?

    If you find out where the car is and u decide to sell off the parts...i am interested in the Metal mirror covers...the Concert 2 CD player (if you have one)....the aircon pressure switch.
    sorry for trying to benefit from your loss, but its my understanding that you have to move fast with parts for these cars. PM me with answers.
