    Audi dealer wrecks clients RS4 (South Africa)

    One of the workers at an Audi Dealership in South Africa, took a clients RS4 for a test drive and wrote it off.

    Quote:
    The RS4 was in for some repairs at the local Audi dealership, and two of the

    workers decided to take it for a test drive. It turns out that they were

    actually racing another employee from the local VW dealership in a Polo TDi

    (last picture). He apparently knows how to use the brakes! There were no

    apparent signs of skid marks or any attempt to stop by the Audi. It simply

    went straight through a complex wall and into a tree! The perps are shown in

    the pictures numbered 20 & 22. The two guys in the black shirts were in

    the RS4 (tall one driving) and the guy with the beanie was driving the polo.

    Nice. Now all they need to do is just hand back the keys to the owner, and when he complains just tell him "What damage? That was already there..."

    Personally I would have asked the dealer to deliver a brand new car - and the balls of the mechanic in a jar.

    Re: Audi dealer wrecks clients RS4 (South Africa)

    I have to say it...

    That will buff right out

    That is why I have using local people. I'm sure there are many incidents where the employees take clients cars out for a joyride, but nothing like this has happened. Typical, they got what they deserved!

    Re: Audi dealer wrecks clients RS4 (South Africa)

    I wouldn't really care or be angry.

    As a matter of fact, I'd be estatic.

    I know I'm going to get a brand new RS4 on the dealers dime, the use of a A6 while I'm waiting for it to arrive, and maybe a new set of spare tires as well for the inconvience.


    Reminds of a dealer on Long Island a few years back. Guy brought his year old Viper in for service. Service guy decides to flog it, and accidently drives it UP one of the 45 degee telephone guide wires that anchors it in unstable soil.

    Dealer tried to give the guy write off value for the car + a little extra or a used Viper.

    Guy told them he wanted a new one, and sued the dealer. The courts forced the dealer to buy him a new one.

    I would love to salvage those Recaro's, most awesome seats ever

    Re: Audi dealer wrecks clients RS4 (South Africa)

    A mechanic at a BMW dealer here took a client's M5 for a drive on a service road, took the corner too fast and ripped the whole under carriage out from under the car on a chain link fence as it crashed into a ditch. The car also had several Dinan upgrades. They had no choice but to replace the car and reinstall all the Dinan stuff. Any dealer who suggests a 'deal' on a new car should be sued without question. A fender bender is one thing, but a write off?

    Re: Audi dealer wrecks clients RS4 (South Africa)

    I cannot see the pictures? anything I do wrong??

    Cheers,

    Mark

    My thoughts exactly

    Re: Audi dealer wrecks clients RS4 (South Africa)

    Heavy impact that was.

    Re: Audi dealer wrecks clients RS4 (South Africa)

    What happend to the driver? Looks heavy!

    Better a dealer wracks it than a friend!

    Re: Audi dealer wrecks clients RS4 (South Africa)

    The Polo won.

    Mine too.
    So the moral of the story is: if you have a nice, sporty, fast, tempting car thats a couple years old take it in for service and leave it there a couple extra days ... you might just end up with a new one !!

    Re: Audi dealer wrecks clients RS4 (South Africa)

    Sad part is that with the RS4 out of production the client can't even get a new replacement....I heard the dealers concerned have used the "All vehicles left here.....at own risk"

    Re: Audi dealer wrecks clients RS4 (South Africa)

    ^^^They can't say that. That's whay lot insurance is for.
    Not to mention, you can't absolve yourself of responsibility if the car is damaged by someone from your staff.

    Heist is right, I'd put dealer out of business if they said that to me.

    Even if the staff was hit by someone else on the road, it is still the dealer's fault. The fact this moron was joy-riding the crap out of someone's car is entirely another matter. Which dealer is this Carn? Thank goodness I sold my RS4 ages ago.
