This is going to sound like a real noob question, and it is...Since you're all talking about cool wheels and spacers, I wanted to say I really liked the red aftermarket lugs. I have the Sport Limited Wheels and want to color match the lugs (sky blue...any light, non metallic-painted lugs will do). What brand should I consider, and is there a difference between lugs for an OEM wheel and an aftermarket wheel? I'm assuming, for all its fanciness those wheels are still OEM?

I hope you'll keep the forum updated on what the inspectors say regarding the damage, as this is a real world example of how our Imprezas take a fender-bender (or, in this case, a fender-shredder). Good luck!!
Sorry about the 3 weeks delay about it. I couldn't get any news about the car since it was Canada day. So repair got delayed & I was stuck with a Blue Nissan Versa for the whole 2 weeks(insurance paid 500$ for the car rental).

The damage estimate around 2800$. I will need to get the repair receipt as I don't have it at the moment. Touch repaint, all part are replaced new except for the wheel. Although the wheel look as new which is a good thing. The insurance called home to confirm that the other driver is at fault.

The engine bay got really dirty when I got it back & the forgot to screw the plastic pin on the windshield washer reservoir. The automatic open/close windows doesn't seem to work properly but will go through Subaru warranty. The car need to go back to the garage for few odd tweak.

Overall I'm satisfied of the car repair as I plan to keep the car for a long time. The handling feel the same.

Video 1080P, before & after the repair.

Try this for the auto window up issue:

Initialization of power window
If the vehicle’s battery is disconnected due to situations such as battery or fuse replacement, the following functions are deactivated:

1. One-touch auto up/down function .
2. Anti-entrapment function while driving.

Initialize the power window using the following procedure to reactivate these functions.
1.Close the driver’s door.
2.Turn the ignition switch to the “ON” position.
3.Open the driver’s side window halfway by pushing down the power window switch.
4. Pull up the power window switch and close the window completely. Continue pulling up the switch for approximately 1 second after the window is closed completely.
5. Open the driver’s side window completely by fully pushing down the power windows switch.

A good translation would be. -->C'est bon lire le manuel, n'est ce pas?

I admit, I should pay more attention on the user manual.

By using the Nissan Versa(hatch automatic) for a little while, I understood how it is to important to have more feature on a car.

I got a very good service at the dealer & especially by the car insurance(Indeed they expect me to pay more next year ). kk, Subaru dealer forgot to add windshield liquid, neither the pin & dirty the engine bay...

The fender seems to go close to the hood near the headlight. I'm pretty anal about things like that, but that's just me.

Well you have an example here & the hood is intact. It haven't been replaced & it has no scratch either. Although the pillar got a scratch from the impact.
