Default car hit while parked...

Hi all...

my 2011 wrx hatch was recently hit while parked and no note was left I came home to find the front right fog light cover and vent cover (just behind it) lying on the ground scratched up and the bumper all gashed up too. Somehow both front fenders were damaged as well, as they are off alignment and scratched/dented. All i can think of there is that since the car was parked on ice, it shifted into something upon impact... what a day!

So, i have never done body work/kits before. I'm wondering the best way to go here... either just take it to the local body shop and/or the suby dealer for reapairs, or just get estimates and learn how to install some fenders/front bumper (i do have friends that do body work in the area that could help me there...).

For possible parts to use, in limited searching all i found were seibon cf's and my friend telling me to get duraflex replacements. I however, dont want a fast/furious look. Also, I know nothing of these brands as well as what kits would fit the 2011 wrx hatch (all o8+ sti kits???)... Any thoughts????

all i can say is and thanks for any help...

well if all the parts that need replacing are just bolt ons i'd say do it yourself and save a bunch, the best place to find parts is here in the classified section especially complete part outs, you may be able to find oem parts that are right color for way less than a body shop painted aftermarket fenders would run ya. also check out car-part.com good selection there too.
Unfortunately i know how you feel only it wasnt bolt on parts that i need to replace. gl

ps.stay away from cheap body kits unless you want to audition for Teh Rice!!! thread

Yea. Waiting on quotes first. Got a $1000 deductible though! Dam!!

Anyone ever use seibon fenders or bumpers??? Fitment easy??? Do they come to match dark gray paint or would they look like cf???
