Yep, here's what happened to our 04 TDI with 307K on her.
Car ahead of us hit the deer. lauched it into the air and here's where it hit.
Same result, totaled. Just replaced it with a 2015 Golf TDI.
Still have our 04 NB Turbo convertible though.

Yuck! I hope nobody was in the passenger seat! That would be an unpleasant surprise :hurl:

My wife WAS in the passenger seat. Fortunately, when the deer landed, it hit the top roof frame first before coming through the windshield. That softened the impact as it came through the glass. She got smacked on the side of the face pretty good and ended up with a pretty good shiner but thankfully that was the worst of it. I only had a few cuts on my hands from the flying glass. The good thing was we were both wearing glasses and did not get any of the glass in our eyes. But, we combed a good bit of it out of our hair that night.
This was in PA on our way home to NC over Thanksgiving.

Yikes your poor wife! I couldn't imagine having a deer come flying through the windshield like that and landing in my lap :eek:
