Yeah, hard to tell on the pics, but the fender lip is warped a tad and there is a small dent and scratch in the quarter panel, paint work and blending will be needed, the shop wants to replace the bumper, the body bracket and bumper bracket are both broken.... so when you talk about bumper, brackets, paint, labor and other materials, starts to add up quickly.

sh!t, thanks for reminding me. I meant to check that. I just went down and looked. Measurements seem to be good on both sides from the hood to the fender. looks like the fender didn't move in.... bumper took most of the hit...

if I get a new bumper, you can have it the old one, in exchange for some DIY help

It's oem and in good shape, minus the inside bumper bracket. But you don't technically need those... the bumper will mount to your sedan and line up fine. you just wont have the side supports near the wheel well.

Black inserts are cool. Ditch the dead halos fasho.
You'll get tired of the Frenchies eventually.
