I had a similar front end crash. This ax cost $35k (US) to properly repair the car. The car had no frame or suspension damage.

It's getting fixed @ around 37,000USD and may need 3 months time.

I guessed as much. I just approved repairs to an Elise which has about the same damage for around the same amount. I'm in the insurance line
