The speedo setting may mean nothing; there'* a phenomenon in crash reconstruction known as "speedometer slap," which basically says that the shock of impact will knock the car'* gauge needles to random locations on their dials, so you shouldn't believe any indications afterwards (especially the indicated speed).
The original post in the Audi forum has since been deleted, but the entire set of photos is available here, running to two pages: http://timeslips.bootnetworks.com/a3tree/
Just curious: does that model even _have_ an airbag in the steering wheel? That looks like a pretty small hub to contain one.
