My Bad Day Part 2
#1
Some of you may remember "My Bad Day" back in December when my wife was in an accident...

Well, this again involves the wife, but no injuries thankfully!

The "New Toy in the Stable" is toast - literally...

Pics from 7/16 - My birthday - one heck of a candle for my cake!

Cause was some sort of electrical fault under the dash. It lost power while she was driving, then died completely when she pulled off the road. It started smoking from under the dash and out the console, followed by flames and what you see in the pics.

It's a bummer, I really liked this car and it was so nice to drive, especially in the winter we just had. Going with the wife to look at Subarus, still not decided on a Forester or an Outback....

I am so very happy to hear that your First Lady was OK as it looks like it was a MAJOR blaze.

I would say that your "birthday present" was not the loss of the vehicle but the fact that no one was apparently injured.

Hang in there, Buddy!

Glad to hear that your family is okay.

Evidently, electrical was not Audi's forte for that year.
