The GF drives an S5. Like a week after we started dating and first time I ever drove it I lightly scraped the side on a pole backing out maybe 2mph. Don't build them like they used to, thing crumpled up like a piece of paper. Good thing she has good insurance because she had to have the entire door replaced. True story.

Well... Everyone now and than us auction people get a steal , and this vehicle is definitely steal of the year for me. Clear title at a dealer it books for around 36k w same specs, I purchased it for 7k! It's gonna need (assuming) all goes well about 5-6k repair. I sell my salvage vehicles normally for 75% of clear title value, so do the math

36k for a Audi S5, damn over here double the price then add some more on top.

Do you sense me?

Do you fear me?

Do you know me?


There's no way out, only a way on.

well guys a little update on the vehicle, i received it yesterday and thankfully damage was even less then what i had expected. the car started no issues, the complete knee turned out to be good, just needs the spindle. radiator, radiator support, hood, and fan all turned out to be OK. Saved major money right there as i was looking at 3000 just for the parts listed. I Ordered some parts today will update as they come

just a little snapshot

Love the Audi! They are my favorite to work on (im in the collision repair industry as well). The rad supports are so nice to change, they have made me some good money over the years!
