depending on your deductible, it may just be better to just buy a new bumper & cf hood (if that's all that's really damaged). If you have a $500.00 deductible and you have $800 in damage it's probably not worth it in the long run b/c your insurance WILL go up, especially if it was your fault.

Depending on the damage.
Bumper is gonna be 300$ish unpainted
hood probably closer to 500 unpainted
and if thats it but im sure you lost a headlight or some small shit.

If your sure that you only damaged the bumper and the hood then you may just wanna pay for them yourself. Im guessing it was a rear-end accident?

Check your radiator for damage, the intercooler, headlights, and also stand by your front doors and look down the quarter panel make sure its still straight.
If you do notice that the quarter panels are off even a lil bit i would put in a claim and get it to the closest "preferred shop". You may have your own shop you like to use i just would go with whatever they reccomend b/c it eliminates the appraisel*. I dunno sorry to hear about it your car nothing you can do about it now.

I also fucked mine up so dont feel too bad at least you didnt run into someone in reverse.

The bumper cover looks salvageable, you definitely need a new hood, and probably your radiator support got bent and needs to be straightened. Definitely take it somewhere and get an estimate, and check with your insurance as to what your coverage is. And FYI, a carbon fiber hood is alot cheaper than the stocker...

What they said. I had some damage to my bumper and a shop said I'd need a new one, but I didn't. If it is cracked somehwere it can most likey be patched by a good shop. I got mine done at Showcase Autobody in Somerville NJ, great guys. Let me know if you want their number.

Glad to see your ok.

The stock hood will cost around 700 from the dealership...so i would definately suggest replacing it with a carbon fiber hood. u can get a stock carbon fiber replacement for 450 shipped to ur door.

the front bumper looks fine, if its just scratched or has small cracks then you can get it fixed from any good shop. was the hood latch damaged?

Not bad at all , just probably needs to be replaced or bent back, no big deal. Definite good idea to go get it checked at a body shop tho to find out the extent of damage...
