Imagine your beloved, high-performance Audi S4 is jacked up and the wheels are stolen. Anger, sadness, but it’s not the end of the world. Then, five days later, while waiting for the new rims and tires to arrive, the city Department of Public Works decides to come out and drag your wheel-less beloved onto a flatbed tow truck and take it to an impound lot downtown, causing extensive damage.
That’s the load of bureaucratic BS Chris Thompson and her husband Mike had to deal with during the Thanksgiving holiday. “They dragged the car with a cinder block underneath it,” said Thompson. “It made me sick.”
“They couldn’t of run our tags, they couldn’t of found us?,” said Thompson. “They didn’t try anything.”
On top of all that, an official with DPW gave Mr. and Mrs. Thompson a $250 ticket because the car was deemed ‘too dangerous to be on public space’. “I was practically in tears when I got handed $250 ticket, I had to pay $120 at the impound for a car that was already vandalized,” said Thompson.

I question the $70k price tag though. Judging from the headlights and grille, I’m guessing this is an S4 and would be under $70k. An A model would have a grille with less prominent vertical lines, and an S6 or S8 would have different headlights. What do you guys think? Am I right?
