    [​IMG]My baby became just a little older than a year before a 80+ women decided to make a U-turn on the highway.
    Shop manager estimated 25000Euro to fix so it will more than likely walk the long way.

    It took me a few minutes to work out what your child's first birthday and 80+ ladies had to do with anything!

    I got there in the end though. Want to see the photos now.

    In trying to avoid the collision I pulled right (right lane traffic) a went into a ditch (deep) and didnt stop until 50m further on, so beneth the car is as smooth as a babies butt (i.e nothing straight or left, H&R springs gone, Milltek gone.....):bye:

    I really dont care if its ok money or not, its fully insured, issue is more the difficulties to obtain a similar one and especially the time and effort.
    Cooler, intercooler, bottom of engine, driveshafts, gearbox and haldex is gone and yes the hole car is twisted.
    Such is life, its only to order a new one as fully speced as the former.:kissmyrings:
