Someone liked my car so much that they decided to do a free mod for me last night, by reversing into my parked car. Excuse quality of the pics.





Indy quote - £300 repair and repaint.

Audi quote - £1800 full rear bumper replacement.

What would you choose?

If you knew for sure the Indy did a quality job then that would be ok, but if they don’t then you’ll notice the shoddy repair every time you look at the car. As Tony says is insurance an option?

I'm favouring Audi installing a new bumper via insurance, as mentioned a repair would bug me down the line, even if the job was well done and unnoticeable. The lady involved knocked on my door to inform me, so have her details for claim. Only had the car a couple months too. My last car, an S4 Avant, had a lorry swipe it while parked too.

I did this and my coolant lost all its pressure so had to remove the cap, push all the air out the system, put the old cap back on and thew away the “R8” one. Oil ones fine though

I think you might need to change your parking space 😂 😂

I see ya logic, but S4 was outside local garage in post surgery recovery when the lorry thought it needed a little walk down the road.

Done nearly two hundred miles mostly high speed motorway with them on and not lost a drop of oil or coolant.

Been tinkering with a few things myself, replaced the puddle lights with Audi Logo ones and the fog light bulbs with ones that match the headlight color better on both cars. The 2017 cab got an APR Stage 1 ECU tune and ECS Kohlefaser Luft-Technik Intake System.
