Over the weekend a friend of the car community up here in the frozen north was badly injured in a tobogganing accident at Kimberly Mountain.
Fractured his skull, pelvis, broke one arm, punctured lung, lacerated his liver and kidneys. Doesn't sound like he has any brain damage (was wearing a helmet thankfully) So we are hopeful he will make a full recovery.
Anyways, he owns a 2006 non-S Line fwd A3. Couple of our buddies are looking to surprise him and get it fixed up a bit for him since its a little worse for wear. I am donating my interior trim pieces (Arm rests, center grab handles, and window switches) as his are fairly chewed up from the previous owner having a dog. He was super excited to get his A3 back into tip top shape for this summer season, but now its not looking to good.
If anyone has any spare parts or is willing to help out it would be greatly appreciated! But of course even just your thoughts counts too.
