    Ouch.
    Depends on the damage that we can't see as well.
    Could be a one way trip to the breakers yard for this one.

    off to the breakers.. esp with airbag deployment... as soon as insures here about that they seem to just pay out instead.

    Hard to know - Are the chassis legs bent?
    Bags can be put back in as I've done it myself.

    If that had been mine, I wouldn't want it repaired, I would want paid out on my policy instead
    It's never going to drive like it did before
    Equally, the repair alone is surely more than the residual value

    However ever does acquire it can make some money from the remaining interior, rear bumper, lights, and alloys
