Last weekend I left my house to and 10 minutes into my drive, this kid hydroplane in the heavy rain we had and crashed into my Q7. I was doing roughly 75mph when the car next to me lost control hitting my left rear sending myself into a concrete barrier head on, yikes.
Insurance company called me couple days and said it’s a total lost.

Glad to hear everyone was okay.

Do you have any posts where you review the Q7? Would be interesting to hear from someone that likes it enough to replace it with another.

No I’ve never reviewed the Q7, but vw’s and Audi’s been in our family driveway’s dating back to my moms fox in the 70’s. You can bet once my claim is settled, I’ll have a new black optics prestige, black on black in the garage again. It’s an amazing vehicle.

In the long run... Cars are mostly to keep us safe on the road. Glad you're okay. And nice progress on your wagon

Seatbelt and airbags did their job, I’m thankful. BTW when I realized that I was alive and not hurt, which took me about 30 seconds. Audi of America was already on the phone with myself and state police trying to figure out direction of travel on the highway, even though they had the accident’s gps location.

Ouch! Good hear you are safe. That's a tough car with that speed of head-on collision.

My wagon is finally off the rotisserie and is completely rust free. Paint is the next step, then reinstalling the glass. I miss my favorite car so much.
Didin't realize you were doing this. Nice! i had rockers repaired on mine last Spring, but haven't gone to that extent. The Golf did get that treatment, however.

I remember a few years ago IBW had the rockers repaired and then to witness the red golf’s complete makeover, was inspiring. I figured my wagon definitely deserves the same.I had the jack points reinforced, which was the source of improper jacking and lifting by many, who don’t take the time to do it correctly. Going for a yearly inspection, and watching so called auto technicians jack your vehicle up most of the times piss me off.

I've given up on using the jack points: I jack in the front on the body reinforcement near the center of the car, and at the piviot point for the trailing arm at the rear. By its nice to have them in good shape. Maybe we can get these cars to last forever!
