re: Scott's Baby is Gone
Let her go, Scott. Take the $7400 and find yourself another. Yours will never be the same. That is, unless you are very confident that the engine and driveline have not been damaged, and you know a very good body shop. Any flaws in fixing frame alignment are going to be exacerbated on a quattro.
Digression (but true story): My ex-father-in-law wanted a 4WD car. I begged him to get an Audi. He refused (citing a bad reliability experience in the 1970s! shows how long a bad reputation can take to overcome) and bought himself an AWD Volvo V70. Which was sitting parked in a parking lot, carefully tucked away in a far corner, four days old, when an 80-year-old lady driving a Ford Crown Vic "sudden- accelerated" (now there's irony for you) into his new car, causing $18,000 in damages. The insurance company refused to consider it totalled. He had it fixed; it won't track straight and it rattles like all hell. Moral of the story: it is bad karma not to buy an Audi.
