    Wrinkly is far more knowledgeable about vehicles than almost all other middle aged (sorry?) women out there. There's a reason she's on this site.

    She is probably more knowledgeable than half of Beyond, nevermind women.

    why do you think her and i get along so well - i take her to dealers and carshows all the time and she cares more about the engine, sound and transmission maybe more than how the car looks! haha.

    It's with George at Tunedub right now, so in safe hands! Has to wait for the insurance adjuster first though.

    Whatever, blessing in disguise. You don't want to own a car that's been stolen and abused anyway. Take the payout (hoping you had coverage!) and get a proper Audi instead (read: 6MT avant)

    Fuckers.

    How did that even happen? If someone was to take a car for just joyriding, why would they even bother to add oil at all? Did I miss something earlier in the thread?

    Blown motor will almost guarantee a write off but who steals a car and adds oil?

    Wow that sucks..... Agreed, who the hell steals a car then adds oil to the engine? Unless it was their goal to blow the engine....

    I have a real Audi (S4 with the V8), The A4 was my daily driver - still lots of fun and economical to boot (but the "A" is still a real Audi )

    Apologies for resurrecting an old thread - but I know some of you would have been curious (don't know why I didn't think to add this before, but I've not been around much since), but Intact really came through for me and I was very pleasantly surprised by a cheque in the mail for $12,500 . They were really great! I thought I'd have been lucky to see $10k. So Kudos to INTACT

    (Now go check out all the shit I have for sale in Market Place lol )

    So it sounds like that was a non-negotiated number.

    How were you "surprised"? Didn't they tell you how much they were offering before they sent it, and you accepted?

    I'm with Innova, and they first tried to screw me with the value of my written off Jag but after I put together a pretty black-and-white case, they upped their offer by 35% and ended up giving me more than I felt my vehicle was really worth, but I wasn't complaining either....

    I just checked online for the going price for similar vehicles at the time and felt it was more than fair.
