The evolution of Type Ia supernova binary system progenitors is highly uncertain. Several evolutionary models predict that the accretion of mass onto the white dwarf is accompanied by mass ejection from the binary in the form of a powerful wind, but very few observations have been made during the initial phase of formation of supernova remnants, when the interaction of supernova ejecta with presupernova wind could be tested. Here we present hydrodynamical simulations of supernova ejecta interaction with an ambient medium modified by presupernova wind. The structure of the ambient medium when the supernova explodes is very sensitive to the details of wind history, and the evolution of the supernova remnant can be affected during several thousand years. We have found that the forward shock expansion parameter is a good tool for discriminating between several wind models. The evolution of the supernova remnant in the presence of an ambient medium modified by interaction with presupernova wind cannot be described by a similarity solution. We also rule out simple models based on a circumstellar medium that merges smoothly with a uniform density ambient medium.
