WTB: Front collision-URGENT need parts

Fanatics,

I'm a long time lurker (literally on here every day) and I have a close friend who is in serious need. Let me know if this is in the wrong thread.

The Car: 2003 325xi
Location: Bayonne, NJ
Short story: Friend just bought the car with cash a month ago for $5k from a meticulous first owner. 75,000 miles, every service document, southern car... Great find. Saturday, she was in a front end accident (she is physically fine) and had the car towed to her local mechanic. The bill is just over $5k and insurance isn't covering the repairs. I have attached pictures of the wreck and the bill. If you have any parts or suggestions, please let me know. I live in Ohio, but I'm trying to help out. It sucks to have your new to you car destroyed like that. I'm not sure if it's worth it to pay for the repairs or tell her to cut her losses... Any help is appreciated. Thanks everybody!

IMO this is very fixable..

both fenders and even front bumper is OK but hoping the engine is not hit though..

what you need

1: Hood
2: Bumper Support, radiator cooling hoses expansion tank etc
3: headlights or just the housing since the lens looks good

a good painter..

agreed. That's basically what the quote said to replace.

I have everything in stock to fix that for them. I even have a mint set of halogen headlights and a steel blue hood. Send me a PM and I will get an quote together with everything shipped to you. I am sure I can help save them a ton of money.
