Re: I totalled my Coupe today.

I think I can speak for everyone here in saying that if it comes down to
the well being of a Q-lister or his/her Audi, we'd take the Q-lister.  If
I even so much as get flamed for that remark, then maybe we all need to
step away from the keyboard for a moment and think about what's REALLY
important in life.  A car can be replaced, a life cannot.  I'm glad to
hear both of you are safe.
