I have a 99 Audi A4 that our son got into an accident with. He rearended someone on the freeway. He drove off the freeway and called AAA. They towed it home. We towed to to a repair shop that fixed the body but when they went to start the engine it wouldn't start. So it was towed to an Audi Dealer. The insurance did a taredown of the engine and yes, it must be replaced... heat damage. The insurance feels the repair shop did the coolant wrong and overheated the car. There is 1 extra mile from the time the insurance ok'd the repairs. Our insurance will not cover it and the Audi dealer says it will cost about $14000 or 15000. to repair the car. We owe $10000. What now??? Anyone know where we can get a CHEAP engine???

Try calling some local scrap yards. I've picked up some parts in the past for very reasonable prices. If you get lucky, there might just be a scrapped A4 with a viable engine.
