I'm with you on that. But as they do on the Price is Right, $8,002 hahahaha.

It's so hard to tell from the pictures what exactly is damaged, but based off of what the car is worth new that eight and change bill could easily be eleven and change.

Definitely over $10K.. I say $15k
I say that because this rear ending of my wife's Audi was a total loss.. They stopped counting at $14k in damage..

I know pics suck and set up is unfair but $5 is one beer at a bar, have a couple conference calls and vendors here today- but its friday and i am jumpy to get to the Rivah

EDIT: and since someone mentioned Price is right- closest with out going over. how is that?

I know a lady that had that, she's alive today as well.

Manek was at the hospital complaining about her head pains and they just said it was a headache. Well after the hospital released her she when into the bathroom and called her husband and shortly afterwards collapsed unconscious. When Manek didn't come home Bob got all worried and started back tracking Manek's travels back to the hospital and found her car in the parking lot. Hospital staff and Bob scoured the hospital and grounds and eventually found Manek on the floor in the bathroom. She was in surgery within the half hour and the hospital said if the surgery was any longer they don't feel she would have made it. Manek's deal was probably about 10 years ago.

I wish you and your's the very best.

Hey you can't go adding rules when the game has already started.

Holy crap - that's a buy back from the insurance company for sure!

Where are you taking it for an estimate? That will have a bearing on our estimates!

Thought about it.. She was rear ended by someone going about 25mph.. (she's OK). The "frame" is pretty bent up underneath.

It did! We replaced it with an newer A4 just because of how well the car took the impact.
