[A4] A4 takes one on its side

Last Friday my 2001 A4 donated some sheet metal, saving my daughter
and I from the ravages of a wayward Jeep TJ, driven by an idiot.
Clearly he was a wannabee rally driver but without either the ability
or intelligence to know when to go fast and when not too.  He lost it
going around a bend and even though I headed for the snowbank on the
side, he got me.

There are pictures posted at


We're both (including the family cat that was in her cage in the back
seat -- didn't even have to clean out her cage!!) fine.  Amazing how
solid the car felt in the impact.

Insurance has approved fixing it.
