Yep, some days it doesn't pay to get out of bed.

Sorry to hear about the Keystone Cops style fiasco in your driveway. 

You should be able to find a fender and a door at a u-pull-it parts yard
somewhere in your area. You don't want to go see an Audi-specific recycler,
because they know what these parts are worth. You want a good-old-boy,
pickup-with-gun-rack style junkyard (no flames intended, guys!), where an
Audi is just some funny looking furrin car.

There's a place about 5 miles from me which can be so described - prices
are $35 for a complete door and $30 for a complete fender. They usually
have a rotating stock of about 5 or 6 type 44 cars (5000 series), so there
are plenty of cars to choose from to get the best parts. The door unbolts,
but I think you have to grind off a rivet on the stop. Fender unbolts too,
but take your time because it seems to be glued at the rear and some of the
bolts/screws/fenders etc. are not in obvious locations.

At these prices, it pays to make a shopping list and do some serious

Can't help you on the bikes - sorry.

Best Regards,

Mike Arman
