funnny thing, I actually bought those fuchs and that interior from
that car. thank Chris and the qlist for that.
But yeah, 4 years ago a type 44 saved my life too. Put one into a tree
at 50+ (supposedly?) sideways and 3 feet in the air. good thing I hit
the stone wall first or else I would have been completely crushed (hit
the tree with the drivers A pillar just about). From what I was told,
the dash was basically folded in half, and I had less than 6 inches of
legroom in the footwell.
Glad I had an airbag, and decided to put my belt on mid-way thru that
trip. Never did make that wedding I was going to tho.
anyone know how the newer Audi's would compare in similar accident?
