Totalled Audi - rev 2
Well saw my wifes car and the Trans-am she hit yesterday:
My guess is both are totalled: entire front of her car pushed in far
enough to bend alternator and compressor mounts and pulleys/belts on
front of engine, no lights, both fenders crumpled/torn, hood pushed
back to where it broke windshield. No bumper left whatsoever... No
apparent damage to suspension, but... who knows.
She did a perfect T-bone into passenger side of Trans-Am. Bent it's
frame for certain, and ripped the rear wheel off the axle (broke all 5
bolts!), and pushed in the passenger door and sill about 12-18 inches.
One strange thing: The air bag did NOT trip!!! wonder what it really
takes and/or is/was it defective?!
Initial insurance statement is that if repairs are more than $9000,
they will total it based on Insurance replacement cost of $12,400 and
75% requirement. This is gonna be a MAJOR hassle methinks... and it
was still under warranty...
Personally we DON't want it fixed, it's just too much damage. She
cried until I told her we'll replace it with a Pearlescent 1994 90S.
