    Thread: Guess the damage...Golf R edition

    1. 04-08-2019 08:22 PM #1
      So a drug addict on a motorcycle fleeing from police hit me (and another vehicle) from behind while I was stopped at an intersection...That son of a bitch did a 360 flip after the impact and the chase ended right here...

      Totaled or not?

      What hidden damage should I be looking out for? It's a 17 R with DCC and all the driver assistance stuff.

      That rear tire.... no idea if it is totaled but there have to be some serious bends somewhere under there.

      my mini had it's rear wheel tweaked in a similar manner.
      while not totaled, it never handled the same.

      with a bent driven rear axle, that R is toast.

      Agreed.

      I don't know the Golf platform's structure, but this raises the question: in a Golf, what bends first, the subframe or the body in white? Or both?

      If it's the subframe, that's easy to replace.

      If it's the white body, that's hard to replace and you will never want the car back for fear that will forever suffer from its molestation.

      Good luck, OP.

      All of this.

      The rear bumper cover/foam/bar is toast, and most likely the rear quarter and door too. Tail light and paint work on the hatch isn't too bad.

      But the tire/wheel/suspension scares me. That took a HARD hit.

      Either $13,889 if the chassis isn't bent, or totaled if the chassis got tweaked. I wouldn't want that car back if the chassis moved at all.

      Expensive, but not totaled. I wonder how much it is to repair any suspension/DCC damages.

      It looks like the hatch just barely got hit too, no? I think you're looking at closer to $12k if that frame/suspension damage is repairable. I had similar Mk7 Golf rear quarter damage without hatch or mangled suspension appraised at $6,500 before tax.

      I actually saw this on LivePD over the weekend, can't remember if it was Friday or Saturday night. It was the first segment of the show, and they blocked off the intersection in anticipation of the biker approaching during the chase. Quite a lot of traffic, and I noticed instantly that the lunatic had crashed in to a blue Golf R. My heart sank for the owner. I saw that you had pulled off the road into a parking lot to inspect the damage.

      That really sucks, and I'm sorry this had to happen to such a cool car. Best wishes, and keep us updated...

      Hatch seems ok. It opens and closes just fine and the gaps look normal...

      I saw that too. My first thought when reading the original post was “this sounds an awful lot like LivePD from the other night.”

      Incredible a motorcycle can do all that damage. I do understand the laws of physics though and understand a heavy enough bike at high speeds can do a lot of damage.

      $15K totaled. I bet the bent wheel is hiding lots of hidden damage.

      Sorry this happened to you, OP.

      Spoken like a true resident of Pasco County.....Home of that famous phrase “These aren’t my pants!”.....from LivePD.....

      I saw the episode as it happened too....and all I could think was....Golf R? This WILL make its way to TCL!

      That motorcyclist got lucky that all he suffered were minor injuries and a possible ankle fracture...Plus, how cool was it to see the very police that were chasing him were suddenly rendering first aid and actually comforting him?

      Stinks about the Golf R. Could’ve been worse I suppose. The motorcyclist could’ve ended up INSIDE....

      Yeah, the shop is going to look at it soon.

      The suspension damage looks similar to this thread:

      It’s a 2 year old $40k car. They’ll replace the rear floor if they have to. It won’t be totaled unless it can be shown that the car will not be able to be properly repaired.

      I would say not totaled. Also love the fact that it takes 7 policemen to tackle an inanimate dude... was he even moving?
