Thanks. Wow, that definitely sucked. Hopefully, insurance will make all things right.

Default That's what I was thinking.

Jeff, you still have that extra interior?

Default So sorry... just staring in disbelief. How long did this take to burn?

Did the airbags all blow?

Default Jeff: The most important point is that you and your family are okay...

Cars can always be replaced-people can't.

Default Wow....shocking how flammable the interiors are...

....so apparently the gas tank didn't blow? I guess that would have been even worse.

Sad sight. :-(

Default I'm very sorry to hear this Jeff...

I'm glad you are ok. Cars can be replaced, people can't. Good luck with the insurance and such.

Default I think I lost my appetite. Seeing those pics, I'm thinking my halon will do me no good ...

I have a halon extinguisher in the TT and a dry chemical in the A4. But seeing how fast the interior burned up, and the fact that the constant source of heat (burning wire perhaps) may not be extinguised until the main energy source is disrupted (fuse or link), it seems that my extinguisher will do me no good.

Having said that, I fear fire on anything I worked so hard for (hence a fire extinguishers within foorsteps of every room in our home). I wonder what is best to avoid this in the future? I wonder if the sound deadening material is flamable?

Default Wow... when did the fire department arrive?

It's really astonishing to me that within 30 seconds it was engulfed... amazing.

Sorry, man. I'm seeing my own TTR in those pics. :/
