Default Sad news for my Subie...

I've been in a motor vehicle accident with my Subie on Friday. I filed a claim with ICBC already, but I still haven't given them a preferred shop to do the repair yet. Although the tow truck man said it would most probably be a write off (with frontal damage and airbags deployed), I still need to find a shop for estimate as ICBC wants the car move out of the tow truck impound as soon as possible.

Now here's my question I wanted to ask. Where is a good place to do estimates/repairs? I know a few bad apples in the auto body industry and I wanted to see where people here in VIC would do their estimates. Any suggestions?? Also in the VIC FAQ, it listed Chris' shop. Is Cosmos Auto Care an ICBC approved Valet shop? I would like to first thank you all for your help you guys and gals will be providing.

And remember, drive safely.

ICBC certified and ICBC valet shops are two different things.
I'm sure Cosmos can take care of this situation.

Don't think I need to contact Cosmo Auto Care anymore. ICBC called this morning and deemed the car total lost I'll miss my Subie... But thanks anyways for the quick replies.

Yeah most probably I'll be shopping around for another Subaru. Does Subaru have any loyalty program for repeating customers?

Well, I still have to speak with the adjuster on Thursday before everything is settled. I want my wheels, headunit, and Prodrive before they sent it to Subaru heaven I'll try and see if I can take back one of my JDM headlights too...

And no, I'm not going to take over your lease cococly :P
