Default Hit Raccoon, Car struggles to start, HELP!!!

Hello people,

Last week on Wednesday i got my koni c/o installed and lowered my Audi A4 1.8tqt APR 93(sorry no pics yet), but anyways i was following someone and they went over a dead raccoon on the road, his car went right over it while mine smashed over it due to height of course. I was pissed, when this happened because it was too late for me to dodge it. Anyways i kept driving and after awhile i started to notice a scrapping sound coming from the front of the car, @ first i thought i was draggin this raccoon then got out of the car to notice it was just my belly pan which was smashed . I tried to put back up but it wasnt cooperating so i ripped it off. After this i continued to a carwash to clean off blood and such, it was a touchless carwash with a under-body/rust inhibitor(bad news). After I then cont' to my destination and turned my car off. When i came back to start it, my car struggled to start, after a few cranks it turned over and i thought my plugs were going. The next day i went to another car wash with same under-spray and went home right after and turned car off again i left it for 15 min and came back to car and it didnt start again, after like 7 times car turned over and then everything was reset(radio locked, windows not one touch, etc), but the car seemed faster and was boosting like crzy i could hear turbo spooling in 5th gear which i never really did hear b4. Anyways after all this i vag'd car and came up with:

01206 - Signal for Duration of Ignition Off Time
27-10 - Implausible Signal - Intermittent

i searched the net(ie AW, Audizine, Google, Wiki vag, Bentley) and couldnt find why water would do this and why my car ended up being or feeling faster. Could someone tell me wat water would do to a running engine and why car seems faster?

As well if this is my ignition coil why does it seem like battery is dying when im turnin it over?

Durin my investigation i also noticed that my Xenon lights were set @ 00012 but the list didnt have this as an option it actually skipped 12 all together and went to 13. Is this setting right? or should i set it to correct setting

Should i also do a throttle body since car reset?

Thnx in advance

Default I can't find anything in the Bentley about that fault code other than 1997 models

throwing a 01206 DTC, but that's related to the A/C system.

There's a TSB on that dated 10/30/1996.

Default are you sure it's not P1206 it's an FI code.

Oh right. At any rate, you still don't have six cylinders.
