So a month ago, I bought a 2011 A3 TDI Premium Plus (6k miles) from Prestige Imports in Lakewood, CO. Last night, I got t-boned by an old man who ran a red light. Yes I am pissed off!!! So, I have towed to Prestige (they are listed on the Audi USA site for collision repair). I'm sure they can repair it and do it well. I'd be shocked if the car got totalled, no air bags went off. You can see the damage in the picture here. Right now the car is waiting at Prestige for the USAA (old guy's insurance) adjuster to come and do an appraisal. Assuming they do a great job and fix everything back to Audi specs, there is still the question of diminished value??? Just from having an accident show up on the carfax. Yes, it's worth less. This is a difficult number to go after considering there are so few A3 TDI's out there but I need to get compensated here. Anyone dealt with this type of thing before? Thanks in advance,
On a side note, kudos to Audi for making a safe car.
