Like ppl already said. If totaled, insurance will give you some money and they should give you buy back option. Talk them down on price a little. I've seen worse pics before, and since airbags are ok you should be good. Painting and straightening frame will cost you most, rest you can do it yourself. And knowing that you put a lot of stuff in it I think it would be a best option. If you do it smart u might end up with some cash in your pocket. If they offer you reasonable price I would say buy it back.
If you decide to buy another car, than save these stainless door blades so I can buy it off from you
Again is not as bad as it looks
Good luck

UPDATE #2: after extensively negotiating with the body shop + my insurance company, including a search for used body parts at various junkyards [NOTHING !!!] to lower the repair bill to below the 'totalling-threshold' of 70% vs the kellybluebook value of my AR, the repair estimate could not be made any lower than their given $8057.00!
in short:
1. my car was deemed 'totaled' last tuesday;
2. the AR will have from now on forward a DMV imposed 'salvage title' [still insurable once fixed, but insurance companies can reduce any future claim by up to 50% !!! - no good];
3. the salvage title is near impossible to remove, meaning any future sale of our already low valued AR would be rather difficult [who wants to buy a 'salvaged' car for good $$?]

so, i had to say good bye to my good old 'Sheep-in-Wolfs-clothing' hot-rod Wägon [left engine in GIAC's '91oct stage2 tune', but kept handheld switcher]. she has served me well for the last 11 years, was always a blast to drive, while carrying endless amounts of biking-, camera- and computer gear and groceries...

I went back to body shop to remove a few bits [abd 'Q-flow' cold air + 'BigBore' intake, 2x HYPERBOOST hx DVs, ski sack, my brand new rear cargo roll-up cover [just got it from my local audi dealer in oct.2012 as a curtesy replacement, since the old one just failed to work - nice gesture]; had to leave the AMS kevlar TBB in place - could not find the OEM rubber TBB :-(

***but there was light at the end of the tunnel: SanDiegoAUDI made me a most marvelous offer [a few $$ over invoice] on a new 2013 A4 allroad [monsoon grey / premiumPLUS / sport pkg / MMI nav/ 19" wheels / B&O sound / advance key]. we're getting the car delivered today or tomorrow. all is fine again in my 'Wägon-World' :-)
i do hope somebody will purchase my old, low mileage 'near perfect' AR at the salvage auction, repair it, and 'she' may live on for at least a few more years and many more miles... m.

hi mike101, sorry was only allowed to remove my OWN parts and NOT any OEM parts that where originally part of the car [to part out the car, i would've had to buy the car back from my insurance company].
