ARGHHH!!!!:eek:
Wednesday the 27th was a terrible after X-mas gift, I was going home on a back road to relieve the stress of driving 10hrs in city traffic and a bad day at work when I hit some black ice and wrecked my new RS4.:( just over a month old.
I've read many a post here about fender benders wrecks and other box tragedies, was always sympathetic to the owners pain.;) but now i know personally how bad you all felt.IT SUCKS:mad: :mad:
to look out in my driveway and see the aftermath of a near miss with a 100ft, 2 1/2 ft dia maple and a telephone pole. By the grace of God I missed both and stuffed my car between the pole and its guy-wire doing damage to both the front sides and the entire drivers side. Due to the recent wind storm the Ins Co's are backed up and can't look at it till next week. I'm gonna hate whatever i get to drive.

seems like the most extensive part that needs to be worked on is at the roof line/edge. others are all parts, bumpers, fenders, doors, side skirt, side mirror, and fog light.

hope yur ins. co. get yur baby back on the road.

we needs a "Back on the road again Recovery Group".

Man, that's aweful. My 7 month old SRP was already in the body shop, also but nothing that fierce. I'd be really interested to hear an estimate that the body shop gives you. Just to get my quarter panel/fender well fixed was almost $800. Correct me if I am wrong, but those look like Nokian snow tires, just goes to show you that even with great tires and the ESC on the box, things can still go wrong. Everyone who lives in a snowy area please be careful piloting your toaster!

Sucks to hear SD.

Just be prepared for them to total it. The damage is pretty extensive. Not so bad that it would total the a regular xB, but probably bad enough for an RS4. I have no doubt that a good body shop will refuse to do anything less than repaint the entire car after all of the repairs are performed.

I think totaling may be a bit of a stretch, but it is pretty extensive damage. The kicker will be the color shift paint. From what I understand, even a small car like the xB will run about $4,000-$5,000 to paint. Hope for the best and keep us updated!

Sorry to hear.

Looking at the pics, I bet your frame is still straight, but there appears to be enough dammage and with the cost of paint, I bet they will total it out.

Good luck in your dealings with the insurance, don't give them an inch.
