So it was my Avitar and what i thought to be my Favorite Car Ever, 170 MPH, 12.1 @ 110 First Time Out at Trails and i did not know how to launch the thing. SO about one month ago brought it to the Detailer for the full Blown Detail Job W Graphizine, ETC. Dropped off on a Thursday, Supposed to pic it up Monday, Got the Call at 3.00 AM (never answered) and again at 8.00 AM, Detail guy was stammering (i said Spit it Out, thought they wrecked it or it was stolen) HE SAID: Your Car Spontaneously Combusted and Burnt the Detail Shop and most of the 12 unit Building (5 Other Business Got smoke and Water Damage)..So Pics of before and Video of the Car on Utube from the News.
So needless to say I am NOT An Audi Fan anymore >:D

Oh Wow. That is absolutely terrible. At least no one was hurt.

I am sure insurance wont replace the cars real value.

Sorry to hear about your Audi, and prayers and wishes to the family of the owner of the detail shop.  Truly sad.
