Mike-- yeah, as Billy mentioned, all authorized Audi dealerships will be listed on the Audiusa.com web-site--just increase the mileage from your zip code if you aren't finding all the listed dealers that are closest to you. http://www.audiusa.com/dealerlocate_frame.htm
Karen-- I had a dream about you last night :P ...well maybe not speciifically about you but integrated into my dream was this A4 driving down the road with a tree growing out of the sunroof (which later turned out to be a pot plant, lol) and this wasn't even the weirdest part of the dream! but I won't bore you with all the other details, lol. Guess I'll have to skip the spicy food at night!
As far as the A/C goes, I had estimates of anywhere from $1,500 to $2,000 to have the air conditioning fixed on my old Ford Probe so I don't think the figure you were given would be too far off.
* Ignore it if you can. New cars are going to get scratches and dings in time. I know the first one is always the hardest to ignore and accept. This of course is the cheapest solution to the problem.
* Check with your insurance company. Does your collision cover it?--and is it within your deductible? See this thread that I read over at AW about a guy that was asking for advice on a similar problem although he has custom wheels: http://forums.audiworld.com/wheel/msgs/37485.phtml
* Post your problem over at AW on the "Wheels and Tires" board and ask if there is anybody that wants to sell only one wheel (describe the wheel). http://forums.audiworld.com/wheel/ You can also check on Ebay's Audi section to see if anybody is selling that particular rim but usually they are selling sets over there but it's worth at least checking to see.
* If you decide to buy a brand new OEM rim, check with Clair Express Parts in Boston. Their prices are considerably less than most local dealers. http://www.clairparts.com/shop/accessories.cfm?do=list&&cat_id=237That link is the page is for the A4 wheel section but unless you have the RS4 wheel, your rim probably won't be listed on that page but you can call Clair and they can get any Audi part for you. I noticed that the OEM RS4 wheel is $399.95 so I would assume your 17" sport pkg wheel would be around that same price or less. Or is the RS4 rim the ones that are in the sport pkg? http://www.clairparts.com/shop/accessories.cfm?do=buy&&pid=1547
Good luck and if I can think of anything else, I'll let you know. Keep us informed.
