I unashamedly drive a D3 to protect my family. This reaffirms why.
I'm glad the family is safe and my thoughts go out to the Audi driver's family. It's a rotten thing to lose a loved one like this but even worse because of the time of year. Christmas will never be the same for either family.

Jeez that is nasty, as DG says if it had been 2 'normal' cars then it would have been 5 dead

Unfortunatley it happens all to often, went out to a enault Senic recently that looked as bad, it had been hit by a small lorry which was not badly damaged.
A has been said good to be in a D3/4, only down side is they also take a lot more to cut if we have to cut people out of them

The D3 design team should get a pat on the back for designing a car which looks after the occupants

Horrible. That Audi looks like its already been in the crusher. Out of interest, what year was the A4? Its not necessarily all about it being a 4x4 'versus' a non-4x4.
I recall the 5th gear program where they crashed an old Renault Espace into a new one. The crash-test occupants of the old one were all 'dead', whereas the new one hadn't even deemed the crash severe enough to have deployed the airbags...2001 D2 GS (I must be mad!)
2005 D3 S 10-12 (gone and missed)
