story is my front end got crunched on my way from college.

damage is

( not at the current Spot)
i got backed into at a parking lot.

i need a new hood, front bumper, side panels,

Under the hood:
the black frame where the hood latches into. that got bent big time.
new screws and what not for the lights to be secure and other parts..

insurance is going to cover it all i believe...

just curious to how much itl cost in the run...

holy shit :shock: I wouldn't know how much that'd cost but its well over a grand but if your insurance will give you the cash to fix it you can get a CF hood....just a thought. BTW if they replace your grill i want that mazda emblem :bigsmile:

got a rough estimate its going to cost $5,000+

the only thing that got me was most of the damage is Sheet metal and plastic!

ouch... yeah, that could be couple of weeks... make sure you take it to the dealership's body shop if you want it done right... learn from my mistake from taking to the mom/pop place to save money (they will cut corners and you still end up paying the deductable so why not do it right)... gl

from what it sounds like it is totaled since people are saying if the side airbags deployed something major has happened to the frame/ chassis, w/e you want to call it.
