Default battle scars for the Q7 today..

so i was driving down to NJ through walt whitman bridge this evening and i was traveling on the left lane at around 50mph when out of nowhere the car in front of me slam the brakes ( there's still 1.5-2 car length between us ).. Audi Pre Sense immediately sense it and apply the brakes while i also floored the brake pedal.. so the Q7 actually came to a full stop 5 feet behind the car in the front, but apparently the car behind me could not, and slam into the Q.. idk what the hell he was doing, all i know was when i saw the mirror, i know the Q is going to take a hit today.. I am Surprised at this car though, even though it took a direct hit at around 30mph from the car behind me, the only thing that got messed up is the bottom trim bumper, and the diffuser..

I think there are sensors behind the bumper that may have gotten wiped out. I'd be curious at the bill and how they deal with the fix.
Do you think they will oder the parts, let you drive the car and have you bring the car in when they have the parts?

Mind keeping us posted on the time frame for repairs and the cost? Glad the presence worked.

That sucks!

I've been rear ended twice in my '14 Q7. Both times the tow hitch prevented any damage to bumper.

so actually all the sensors are still working fine. after the accident we continue to head to our friends wedding party.. and when we got there and park the car, all the sensors are still functional..

Great news on the sensors.

Think I'll look into an add on for protection. My sister in law lives in Brooklyn and she added an off road looking bumper guard.

Good luck!

That really sucks. I got rear ended in my Q5 in an ice storm a few years ago and it looked worse than that and I had 5,000 worth of damage. Have a reputable Audi body shop check it out for you.

I'm interested in the repair cost too. Thanks for keeping us posted.
