Depending on your opinion on 1/2 inch... Did push stuff into your aux fan?? or did it mess up anything about how your hood sits??... OR more importantly did it mess up your down lock for your hood???.. make sure it didnt cause you dont want your hood to fly up while driving on the road...

Good Luck...

Pics would do a lot more justic for us...

Assuming everything with the fan and radiator are fine, you're looking at new nose panel, paint, and griill. Good shop will charge $400 parts paint and labor.

You should just take it to a body shop and find out what they will charge you to fix it. Just give the person who hit you a copy of estimate, if she is honorable (which it sounds like she is) then she will just give you the cash. What you use it for is up to you

If you're trying to save money don't do that. When I was in an accident I tried to arrange for the repair shop to put an M3 bumper on. They were completely for the idea but when they told me it would cost me an extra $800 I balked.

A lot of stuff you can do yourself...If you buy the bumper and have it painted...it's so easy to do yourself it's not even funny. I just switched out my waterpump, thermostat, belts, and hoses myself all for $100. My local auto shop quoted me $300 just for the water pump installation. Way better to mail order and then do it yourself.
