    Those 2 men in black shirts looks more like salespersons than
    the ones doing mechanics by a EU standard..

    The dealer will suffer for this and the again
    the 2 men in black is going to lose their job
    at Audi and you will soon see them agian
    working for some Korean car company.

    The Polo looks slick but why even other racing it, the car is slow as a snail. Like Julius said this is quite unfortunate for the owner since he will now have to locate a new RS4 of his liking which might not be a very easy task in SA.

    Although the crash was quite severe the car is repairable but probably to the cost in line with 2/5th of the car's value, but who would want to buy it???

    This happened 700m down the road from my offices. I was out of the office at the time and so didn't hear/see anything.

    It's hardly a road where one can race.

    This is a classic example of stupity - not speed - kills. In this case it's RIP beautiful RS4. The RS4 is a write-off, I've read. Another interesting thing is that the whole wall initially landed on top of the RS4's roof. It held up admirably.

    Oh, and up here on the Reef a 96 kW, 310 Nm Polo TDI is freakin rapid - not RS4 rapid but surprisingly quick.

    Poor RS4.:cry2: Very cool looking Polo btw. 310 Nm is more than enough for a car like the Polo. I wouldn't mind owning one at all.:cool:

    Τhe owner of the RS4 is actually lucky. His car was old news anyway. Now it's his chance to get a brand new S4 for free as a compensation for the accident. :D

    I see that the cupholder is deployed. I hope the driver didn't spill his drink! :D

    -I have the feeling he will just take the money and get either an M3, C63 AMG or even IS-F. The new S4 is nice, but it pales in comparison with his old RS4.

    The owner should take the insurance money and put a deposit down on a CTS-V, it'll make his RS4 feel like a Kia.
